Beneq ALD barrier coatings for flexible and organic electronics
The need for efficient moisture and oxygen barrier films is a major challenge in flexible and organic electronics, of which organic light emitting diodes (OLED) and organic photovoltaics (OPV) are two applications. Conventional thin film barrier deposition techniques are incapable of producing barrier layers with a low enough water vapor transmission rate (WVTR). For this reason and need, ALD-based Beneq nCLEARŪ barrier coatings offer superior properties and tangible solutions for the industry.
nCLEAR barrier technology
Beneq nCLEAR inorganic barrier films are deposited with atomic layer deposition (ALD), which creates extremely dense thin films with very low pinhole density. As a result, ALD films provide unique barrier properties. Beneq has more than twenty years of experience in using ALD for manufacturing and can provide high-performance nCLEAR barriers based on proprietary nanolaminates. The solution is an automated batch coating process for which Beneq provides turnkey systems, e.g., the TFS 600.
