    No, they cannot. As I posted above, OLEDS are coated by a different process.

    Some digital materials can be coated by film or paper coaters.

    Film coaters are designed to coat water based materials. They cannot coat using organic solvents. This simple problem causes all kinds of problems when trying to convert over from one to the other.

    Organic solvent based materials take considerably different methodology than water based materials, which includes proper removal of solvent by scrubbing the air. Some cannot even be coated, they must be cast.

    Thank you for answering. So the definitive answer is that coating lines now used for film production cannot be re-purposed for any other uses.

    I know that many paper products use water based materials as part of the coating process. This is why I asked the question. I did not want to suggest that Kodak could convert everything to OLED production, since I know that is different.

    Anyway, this entire thread is speculation. None of us can predict the future.

    Ciao!
