What kind of touchscreen is used on the HazPAC R9-8.4 computer?


The HazPAC R9-8.4 touchscreen integrates a flexible glass touch sensor that increases the durability and reliability of traditional resistive touch sensors. During the manufacturing process, an extremely thin layer of borosilicate glass is bonded to the surface of the touch sensor.

The touchscreen with this glass surface layer is impervious to flames, chemicals, solvents and stylus use for maximum abrasion and scratch resistance. This glass surfaced touchscreen maintains all the benefits of traditional resistive touchscreen technology, including being waterproof and dustproof, by accepting user input from a finger, gloved hand, stylus, and more.

For maximum safety, if the glass layer is broken or damaged, it will safely remain intact with the bonded sub-layers and continue to operate. For increased durability, the glass layer of the touchscreen prevents the ‘pillowing’ effect experienced when traditional resistive touchscreens age and are near the end of their useful life.

How durable is it? Simulating a finger press in one spot, the glass resistive touchscreen has been tested to greater than 150 million activations — with no failures.
