Flexible Thin Film Barrier Layers

Materion Large Area Coatings provides in-line, roll-to-roll vacuum polymer technology and transparent Aluminum oxide ceramic (alumina). This technology can produce water and oxygen barrier properties significantly better than that available in the industry today and on a wide range of substrates.

BP-7066-B0.005-5 allows thinner and less costly materials to be used in the barrier markets and eliminates the need for expensive laminations. This technology has a high optical clarity and can be applied to plastic and non-plastic substrates.
