A recyclable multilayer coated fiber-based substrate combining sufficient barrier and printability properties for printed functional devices was developed using reel-to-reel techniques. The substrate consists of a mineral pigment layer coated on top of a barrier latex layer. The pigment layer allows controlled absorption of ink solvents. By adjusting the thickness and porosity of the top coating the printability can be tuned for various functional inks. As a proof of concept a hygroscopic insulator field effect transistor (HIFET) was successfully printed on the multilayer-coated paper.
