LG Display’s mass produced plastic e-paper could boost the global e-book market. On Thursday, LG Display said it began mass production of a plastic e-paper that is half the weight and one-third the thickness of existing glass-based displays.
This makes it possible for more portable e-books, as it can be bent up to 40 degrees. The displays also do not break easily, and can be safely dropped from 1.5 meters, according to LG Display officials. Maintaining a thickness of 0.7 millimeters and a weight of 14 grams, the company was the first in the world to commercially produce 6-inch plastic e-paper.
With plans to launch it in the European market by early next month, the plastic displays are energy-efficient and can withstand high temperatures.
