Background: From televisions to laptop computers, cell phones to digital watches, today?s electronic displays are manufactured on glass. As industry strives to improve existing display technologies and develop a new generation of displays, manufacturers are exploring the use of plastic. Plastic offers increased ruggedness and flexibility and reduced thickness and weight. The fact that oxygen and water vapor can pass through plastic, however, has been a major roadblock in its use. Two ultra barrier coating products developed at Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Flexible Glass? engineered substrates and the Barix? coating, offer extremely high levels of barrier protection that can remove this obstacle and play significant roles in the display industry.
