Teric PET Screen Protector
Or 6 payments of $4.17 What's this?
This peel and stick clear display protection film is die cut to fit only the Shearwater Teric model dive computer, does NOT fit any of the other Shearwater Devices. Biaxially oriented polyethylene terephthalate (PET) films have outstanding mechanical strength, dimensional stability, transparency and chemical resistance. The Teric package from Dive Gear Express already includes one film. This is the genuine OEM product as supplied by Shearwater.
- Assembly Kit includes:
- 2 x Screen protector films
- Microfiber cloth
- Dust absorber sticker
- Dry/wet wipes
The Teric screen is a synthetic sapphire crystal, NOT the typical low cost acrylic or mineral glass found on other dive computers. Sapphire (whether natural or synthetic) is one of the hardest substances on earth. It measures 9 on the Mohs scale, which is a system for rating the relative hardness of various materials. (Diamond measures 10, the highest rating.) Watch crystals made of synthetic sapphire are described as "very scratch resistant" because they are very difficult - but not impossible - to scratch. Diamond can scratch them; so can man-made materials that incorporate silicon carbide, which is harder than sapphire. So, if you accidentally impact or scrape your Teric on a surface that incorporates silicon carbide, it could scratch the crystal. This is an unlikely circumstance and so Shearwater does not install a PET screen protector by default in order to give the user a choice because any additional material layer on the screen will slightly diminish the intensity and clarity of the OLED display
