Waterproof Touch Screen with Consistent and Reliable Touch Performance

UICO's PCAP touch technology has ushered in a new era of a waterproof touch screen that excels in water-intensive environments, particularly when gloves are involved.  UICO's innovation highlights its exceptional performance in water-rich settings. UICO stands as a trailblazer in Projected Capacitive Touch (PCAP) technology, a significant leap from traditional resistive screens. The essence of PCAP lies in its electrode-based touch detection, a feature that underpins UICO's groundbreaking solution for touchscreens in water-intensive scenarios.


Standard touchscreens often falter in wet environments, especially when gloves are worn. UICO's PCAP technology triumphs in such conditions, ensuring precise and accurate touch recognition through wet surfaces and various glove materials. This level of precision redefines user interactions in settings where water exposure is inevitable.

Our PCAP touch technology is a game-changer in hygiene-sensitive environments involving water. From medical applications to aquaculture, users can maintain sterile conditions by operating touchscreens with gloves, without compromising on safety or efficiency.

UICO's commitment to durability remains unwavering in water-rich settings. The PCAP touch screens are engineered to withstand water exposure, chemicals, and potential impacts, ensuring consistent and reliable performance in aquatic environments.

Furthermore, our PCAP industrial touch screen technology redefines glove usage touch screens in water-intensive environments, setting a new standard for precision, sensitivity, and adaptability. Whether it's marine industries, water sports, or aquatic research, UICO empowers users to interact effortlessly with touchscreens in the presence of water, both on the surface and underwater. This innovation fosters safety, efficiency, and user satisfaction, establishing UICO's PCAP touch technology as a pivotal solution for touchscreens in water-rich settings.

Benefits of UICO Waterproof Touch Screens:
Say Goodbye to False Touches

Sealed to Combat Moisture and Contaminants

Our PCAP touch screens boast a sealed design that safeguards the internal components from dust,
moisture, and contaminants. This sealing not only maintains the touch screen's touch accuracy but also
contributes significantly to its overall durability. By preventing foreign particles from entering the device,
the risk of internal damage is minimized, leading to a longer lifespan.

UICO PCAP touch screens are known for their resistance to water and moisture. This is due to the nature
of the capacitive touch technology employed. Since these touch screens operate based on changes in
electrical fields, the presence of water or moisture on the surface does not interfere with their
functionality. This resistance makes PCAP touch screens suitable for use in wet environments without
compromising durability.

UICO PCAP touch screens offer a uniform and consistent touch-sensitive surface across the entire screen
area. This uniformity ensures that touch interactions remain accurate and responsive across all regions
of the screen. The longevity of this uniform surface further adds to the durability, as there is no
concentration of wear on specific areas.

Rigorous Testing for High Use Environments

UICO subjects their PCAP touch screens to rigorous testing procedures to ensure they meet industry
standards for durability and performance. These tests often include evaluating the touch screen's
response to impacts, temperature fluctuations, and other environmental factors. Certifications from
recognized organizations validate the durability claims of PCAP touch screens, providing users with the
confidence that they are investing in a reliable and long-lasting product.

PCAP touch screens are designed to thrive in high-use environments. Whether in retail settings with
frequent interactions, industrial facilities with exposure to harsh conditions, or outdoor installations
with varying weather conditions, these touch screens excel. Their durability in such demanding
scenarios highlights their ability to maintain consistent performance over extended periods.

Marine Touch Display

Touch screens have become an essential part of our daily lives, and they are now making waves in the world of ocean environments. Unlike traditional controls, touch screens provide a more user-friendly interface and can withstand the harsh conditions of the ocean. A waterproof touch screen is an important feature, but other factors need to be taken under consideration as well.


PCAP touch screens are designed to be durable and can withstand the harsh conditions of marine environments, including exposure to saltwater, extreme temperatures, and high levels of humidity. They are also resistant to scratches and abrasions, making them ideal for use in challenging environments.


One of the main benefits of touch screens for marine environments is their durability. They are designed to withstand the corrosive effects of saltwater and can handle extreme temperatures, making them ideal for boats and other marine vessels. This means that touch screens can be relied on in even the toughest conditions. Uico specializes in high performance marine touchscreens.
