LG Chem has developed a new top layer for flexible displays that it claims is both "hard as glass" and "flexible as plastic", while offering several key advantages over materials currently used in folding displays. LG calls the new material Real Folding Window. Compared to existing materials, Real Folding Window should offer "significantly improved fold lines in the folding area", meaning less-visible creases. The material is also designed for both inward- and outward-folding displays, unlike current commercial products that are optimized for inward-folding displays. The mew material is thinner than tempered glass and cheaper than existing polyimide film products. LG's new material consists of a thin, proprietary coating on both sides of a thin PET (plastic) film. LG plans to begin "full-scale" sales of Real Folding Window from 2023. The company is already working on an improved version that removes the need for a PET base layer, which will be even thinner and better-suited to "rollable" displays.

Here's to the best of both worlds! 🍻
