Smooth surfaces with low defect densities are of great importance for many application areas, i. g. for high-gloss and dirt-resistant furniture. Within the so called “OptiPerm” project, a new technology for the production of ultra-smooth polymer films has been developed by research scientists at Fraunhofer FEP.The technology, which was previously demonstrated on samples in A4 format, has now been successfully transferred to a roll-to-roll process with even higher surface quality. Particularly in latter case, subsequent finishing steps can only exhibit their full potential if the surface quality of the substrate is also at a very high level. For example, films for the encapsulation of electronic components need thin permeation barrier layers made by a vacuum coating process that prevent against penetration of oxygen and moisture. Defects on the substrate surface would compromise these thin coatings.
