Flexible barrier films is a flexible substrate or barriers made to protect the electronic components from degradation caused due to oxygen and water and other environment factors. There is increasing development of electronic devices that offer flexible form factor which provide, lightweight, robust and versatile application usage without compromising performance of the device. These devices like flexible electronics and photovoltaic need to survive with necessary time and conditions as per acceptable device requirement. These conditions acts as limitation for many organic, flexible and printed electronics because most of the material used in these electronics are chemically reactive to environmental factors like oxygen and moisture.
