  • Patent number: 11346989
    Abstract: The present invention relates to a polarization filter for ophthalmic lenses. The polarization filter comprises a mesogen layer coated onto a retardation film, either directly or through an adhesive layer. The present invention further discloses that the polarization filter formed by employing a thin film or sheet, having a defined level of retardation between the light source and the mesogen layer, for example, a cholesteric mesogen layer, the multilayered laminate structure demonstrates linear polarization of the light transmitted through the mesogen laminate structure, and, hence, can be used in ophthalmic lenses, e.g. spectacle or eyeglass lenses. The polarization filter enhances the performance by allowing transmission of the polarization filter closer to the theoretical maximum transmission.

    Abstract: The present invention relates to a thermoplastic moulding composition composed of polycarbonate and inorganic fillers which comprises from 0.01 to 0.5 part by weight of at least one anhydride-modified alpha-olefin terpolymer and which has a high degree of rigidity and nevertheless exhibits good strength, as well as stress-strain characteristics corresponding to those of an unreinforced polycarbonate. Surprisingly, the moulding composition additionally exhibits an improvement in flame retardancy. The invention relates in particular to flame-retardant, thermoplastic moulding compositions filled with glass fibres, and to the production and use thereof. The property profile is, surprisingly, independent of the degree of interaction of the filler with the polycarbonate matrix.
