It is common today for decorative films with metal components to serve as shatterproof films as well, and smartphones using this film will have a glittery metal feel to them.

Optical PET film made by SKC has high transmittance and good physical specifications such as tensile strength, making it perfect for the LCD backlight unit, which is a dimming equipment that distributes light to the entire LCD panel. The unit is composed of the reflection sheet, light source, expansion sheet, and prism sheet, which work to reflect, concentrate, and diffuse light coming from the light source. The light from this equipment is then adjusted for color and light quantity with liquid crystal to create the LCD screen.
