Nitto Denko and 3M announced that they have jointly developed a new high-durability, ultrathin LCD polarizing film that is claimed to be approximately half the thickness of existing products and provides outstanding optical performance.

3M will supply its Vikuiti advanced polarizing film to Nitto Denko, which will manufacture the new products by combining the film with its own polarizer film for LCD panel makers. The result, said the press release, is a very thin polarizing film that provides higher brightness with no loss in viewing angle, as well as lower power consumption than displays with no reflective polarizer. Target applications include cellphones, MP3 players and automotive displays.

The film is expected to be commercially available in April 2006.
