    Market Requirements

    The goal is a flexible polymer film with glass-like properties

    • Low WVTR (Water Vapor Transmission Rate) – The key parameter [g/(m2day)]

    • High Optical Transmissivity – Low absorption & haze at wavelengths of interest

    • Mechanical Robustness – Resistance to impact, scratching, soiling, etc.

    • UV Stability – For outdoor applications like solar

    • Cost Effective – Roll-to-Roll Processing
