Announcement of Ngomad, Inc. (www.ngomad.com)
General Plasma has formed a new company, Ngomad (a play on the founder’ names, pronounced Nomad, with the “g” silent), to sell consumer products made by General Plasma’s proprietary coating technology. The first product will be an aftermarket Mobile Display Enhancer for mobile phones. It’s the world’s first glass overlay with a Precision Optics Grade Anti-Reflection (AR) Coating. By laminating a Ngomad Enhancer on a mobile display, the screen reflection is reduced to <0.7% compared to 4.5% for standard cover glass. This will more than quadruple the effective Contrast Ratio and Viewability in Ambient Light. Ngomad’s AR performance is significantly better, in both the visible-spectrum and high-energy wavelength reflectance, than Apple’s latest iPads. Additionally, the Ngomad Enhancer has a neutral color and the AR coating is harder than the 3H underlying PET hardcoat making it very durable.
Media kits with Ngomad Mobile Display Enhancer samples will be going to technology reviewing publications and bloggers in May. www.ngomad.com will be up and ready to take orders when the kits go out. We are super excited about this new venture. We have the Enhancers on our phones and can’t wait to hear the reviews.
Ngomad, Inc. is a wholly owned subsidiary of General Plasma, Inc. All Ngomad products are made in the USA at General Plasma’s factory.
