  • Patent number: 10338408
    Abstract: Described herein is a cost-effective and time-efficient method for making UV-absorbing contact lenses. In contrast to the conventional method for making UV-absorbing contact lenses which involves copolymerizing a lens forming composition including a UV-absorbing vinylic monomer, a method of the invention involves dipping a contact lens in a solution of UV-absorbing polymer comprising carboxyl-containing monomeric units, UV-absorbing monomeric units and covalently bound radical-initiating moieties to form a UV-absorbing coating on the contact lens.

  • Publication number: 20140256842
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a method for producing an optical member wherein an optical substrate having a light-blocking part on the surface is bonded to an optical substrate for bonding. The method for producing an optical member uses a UV-curable resin composition and comprises specific (Process 1) through (Process 3). The present invention also relates to the use of a UV-curable resin composition comprising a (meth)acrylate (A) and a photopolymerization initiator (B) for the production method, and a UV-curable resin composition. It is possible to produce a bonded optical member having good curability and adhesiveness, such as a touch panel or display unit having an optical substrate comprising a light-blocking part, with good productivity but with little damage to the optical substrate. It is thereby possible to obtain an optical member having a high degree of resin curing at the light-blocking part and high reliability.

  • Publication number: 20140167333
    Abstract: Methods of forming a curable pre-impregnated composite precursor material with radiation (e.g., actinic or electron-beam) curable resin composition systems are provided, as are the curable pre-impregnated composite precursor materials themselves. The resin systems have reversible temperature-viscosity control, which are advantageously used to form curable pre-impregnated composite precursor materials (pre-preg) that can be cured to form a composite article. The uncured resin composition comprises: (a) an acrylate or a methacrylate monomer; (b) an oligomer species selected from the group consisting of: polyethers, polyesters, epoxies, and combinations thereof; and (c) a photoinitiator. The uncured resin has a first viscosity at 21° C. (70° F.) of ?about 200,000 centipoise (cP) and a second viscosity of ?about 5,000 cP at 65° C. (149° F.) or above.

  • Publication number: 20140134349
    Abstract: The present invention describes a method for repairing defects on a surface of an optical substrate. The method includes a step of providing a radiation curable coating and then applying the coating onto a surface of the optical substrate. The coating is then cured with a UV light source causing the refractive index of the coating to be less than ±10% of the refractive index of the substrate. The cured coating exhibits a viscosity less than about 315 CP at 25° C. The present invention also describes a novel coating composition for repairing optical substrates.
