Interactive touch foil is made up of a clear plastic type of material that is about the thickness of card-stock paper; the touch foil application process is similar to that of a window tint material. With both temporary and permanent application options you can use the right solution for your application; each method is a bit different than the other but it is important that you understand that each has it strength and individual purpose.

Touch foils have been installed in retail storefront window displays, museums, and corporate lobbies, even in manufacturing plants for automation displays and more. One of the greatest functions of the touch foil product is that it is completely isolated from contact with the touch screen user; the touch foil is applied behind the glass and will sense a touch through the glass. Because of this remarkable technology the touch foil can be used in places like storefront windows and high traffic public areas like transit stations and public malls.
