The high brightness panels, in their bendable version are expected to open up new application spaces for luminaire makers and lighting designers.
For the newly launched product range of high brightness and bendable lighting panels, OLEDWorks relies on BASF's flexible barrier solutions. The high-performance encapsulation protects the panels from degradation through water or oxygen, both present in ambient air while ensuring an optical transparency of more than 90%.
“We are delighted to work together with OLEDWorks and provide our expertise and technology to develop an innovative product. Our barrier solutions provide comparable barrier protection as glass. But unlike glass, thin-film encapsulation using BASF barrier materials is flexible, lightweight and break-resistant, offering new possibilities for product design and increased reliability in manufacturing for OLED lighting and display customers,” said Stephan Klotz, head of Functional Films – NOVAGA at BASF’s Coatings division.
