FlexEnable has pioneered a flexible electronics technology platform that allows electronics to be manufactured on flexible plastic film, the thickness of a sheet of paper. It can be used for the manufacture of glass-free, flexible displays and sensors with versatile applications in sectors including consumer electronics, automotive, digital signage, medical and security. The company has already achieved several breakthroughs with flexible colour and video-rate plastic displays (LCD and OLED) and flexible X-ray image and fingerprint sensors.
