Paper Abstract

ZEON CORPORATION developed innovative optical plastic Cyclo Olefin Polymer (COP), ZEONEX (R) with own technology in 1990 then started commercial production of ZEONEX(R) for optical applications with its very unique properties such as high light transmission, low birefringence, low water absorption, and high glass-transition temperature etc. ZEONEX(R) exhibits outstanding optical performance even under high humidity and temperature conditions. In order to meet increasing requirements of optical market, ZEON CORPORATION newly developed ZEONEX(R)F52R which has high glass-transition temperature 156 deg. C and shows the feature of very low focal length change after high-temperature and high-humidity test.
