the are are aluminized films and ITO-sputtered films.
But both ´coatings´ have their serious disadvantages and as far as I know no commercial ESL uses such precoated films any more.

You´ll want the coating only where it´s needed! So keep spacers and the outer rim of the panel out. That´s a great plus of coating the film yourself!
Coating is very easy with the right stuff. For DIY I recommend the glue-formula, which is easy to mix, easy to tailor to the needed parameters, totally transparent, water based and non toxious (could even be swallowed without harm), stable and extremely cheap.
You can paint, roll or spray this coating on.
Use the search-function for ´coating´ and ´glue´ or similars.

How big is this Final 80 panel? If it fits my stretcher then perhaps I can help you along. I'm located in the south of Holland.
