Cyclo-olefin polymer (COP) is an inexpensive amorphous polymer with a number of desirable properties, including high transparency, high heat resilience, low water absorption, a stable refractive index, and low birefringence. Due to these exceptional qualities, COP has been utilised in numerous opto-electrical and medical uses.
Surface modification is required to obtain the high adhesion of COP due to the simple chemical structure’s lack of functional polar groups that are effective for adhesion. There has been a lot of effort done to create useful ways to change the COP surface.
By analysing the fracture surfaces using high-resolution scanning electron microscopy and visualising the bonded interfaces using energy-filtering transmission electron microscopy and scanning transmission electron microscopy, researchers were able to determine the process of the low-temperature bonding of COP.
The Global EV Cyclo-olefin polymer (COP) market accounted for $XX Billion in 2022 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2023 to 2030.
The Cyclo Olefin Polymer (COP), developed by the Zeon Corporation, is well-known and widely used as an optical plastic in the optical industry. It has special characteristics like high light transmission, low water absorption, low birefringence, and others.
High performance optical base films have been developed with success by Optes Inc, a subsidiary of optical parts maker ZEON CORPORATION. Made from cyclo olefin polymer and using proprietary film manufacturing techniques, these are used for retardation and polarising films in LCDs (Liquid Crystal Displays).
The optical base film created by Optes Inc. has superior properties in terms of low birefringence, high optical isotropy, and high dimensional stability under high humidity and temperature conditions when compared to those of existing products like polycarbonate (PC), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), and triacetate cellulose (TAC) base.
With its highly distinctive properties, including high light transmission, low birefringence, low water absorption, and high glass-transition temperature, they began commercial manufacturing of ZEONEX (R) for optical applications.
Even in circumstances of high humidity and temperature, ZEONEX (R) displays exceptional optical performance. ZEON CORPORATION recently developed the ZEONEX (R)F52R, which has a high glass-transition temperature of 156 degrees Celsius and exhibits the property of very low focal length change after high-temperature processing, in order to satisfy the growing demands of the optical market.
