Paper Abstract

This paper addresses the peculiar conditions one encounters in coating of plastic substrates with thin films. The emphasis lies on optical coatings, with decorative metallization being omitted from the discussion. Differences in the nature and preparation of the substrates, the coating processes, and resulting film properties compared with 'regular' optical coatings on glass elements are highlighted. The paper concludes with a survey of coating processes suitable for the deposition of thin films on plastics.
