    Description

    Technical Field



    [0001] The present application relates to a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display and a use thereof.

    Background Art



    [0002] Recently, with the development of display related technologies, display devices that can be deformed at the use stage, such as folding, winding in a roll form, or stretching like a rubber band are being studied and developed. Since these displays can be modified into various forms, it is possible to satisfy both demands for enlargement of the display at the use stage and miniaturization of the display for carrying.

    [0003] The deformable display device can be modified in various forms in accordance with the requirements of the user or depending on the needs of situations where the display device is used, as well as capable of being transformed into a predetermined form. Therefore, it is necessary to recognize the deformed shape of the display and to control the display device in accordance with the recognized shape.

    [0004] On the other hand, since the deformable display device has a problem that each of constitutions of the display device is damaged according to the modification, each of the constitutions of the display device must satisfy folding reliability and stability.

    [Patent Documents]



    [0005] Patent Document 1: Korean Laid-Open Patent Publication No. 2015-0011230 A KR20160083583A discloses a composition for an adhesive for a foldable device comprising a linear silicone which can be blended with an MQ resin.

    Disclosure


    Technical Problem



    [0006] The present application provides a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display and a use thereof.

    [0007] The present application provides a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display having excellent bending reliability by satisfying a storage elastic modulus in a predetermined range over a wide temperature interval, for example, a temperature interval of -40°C to 90°C.

    [0008] The present application also provides a foldable display comprising a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer having excellent adhesive force and cohesive force, while having bending reliability suitable for a foldable display, and a method for manufacturing the same.

    Technical Solution



    [0009] The present application relates to a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display and a use thereof.

    [0010] The pressure-sensitive adhesive composition according to the present invention has a storage elastic modulus of not more than 5.0 x 106 Pa after curing over a wide temperature interval, for example, a temperature interval of -40°C to 90°C and thus has physical properties suitable for use in a foldable display.

    [0011] In addition, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition according to the present application comprises a predetermined additive to realize high cohesive force and adhesive force, thereby being capable of overcoming a problem in a pressure-sensitive adhesive having a low pressure-sensitive adhesive force, for example, a low adhesive force problem.

    [0012] Such a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition is cured, for example, to form a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer, where the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer is contained in a foldable display, for example, formed on a base film and may exist on one side or both sides of a polarizing plate.

    [0013] In the present application, the term "foldable display" may mean a flexible display having a radius of curvature in a folded portion of less than 5 mm by being designed such that it can be repeatedly folded and spread like a paper.

    [0014] The pressure-sensitive adhesive applied to the foldable display must satisfy bending reliability, unlike conventional pressure-sensitive adhesives, and in order for such bending reliability to be excellent, rheologic physical properties, for example, a storage elastic modulus should be maintained within an appropriate range over the temperature range in which an actual foldable display can be used.

    [0015] However, in order to maintain the storage elastic modulus within an appropriate range for securing the bending reliability, the content of the substance imparting adhesive force should be reduced; but in this case, there is a problem that the adhesive force of the pressure-sensitive adhesive itself decreases.

    [0016] Thus, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition according to the present invention comprises a predetermined additive, together with a silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive in which a variation width of the storage elastic modulus in the commercial temperature range is minimized by controlling the content of an MQ resin that imparts a pressure-sensitive adhesive property and appropriately designing the structure of silicone gum.

    [0017] Accordingly, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition according to the present invention maintains the storage elastic modulus within an appropriate range, thereby not only securing folding reliability required in the foldable display, but also being capable of having excellent adhesive force and cohesive force.

    [0018] That is, the present application relates to a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display comprising: a first pressure-sensitive adhesive; a second pressure-sensitive adhesive; and any one additive selected from the group consisting of a borane compound, a borate compound and a mixture thereof.

    [0019] The pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display has a peel force on a glass substrate of 0.00772 N/mm (20 gf/in) or more, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees after curing.

    [0020] The first pressure-sensitive adhesive comprises a first silicone gum and a first MQ resin and has a peel force on a glass substrate of 0.00386 N/mm (10 gf/in) or less, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees.

    [0021] The first pressure-sensitive adhesive is a low pressure-sensitive adhesive component having a relatively low pressure-sensitive adhesive force, and comprises a first silicone gum.

    [0022] The term "silicone gum" herein is commonly called a polyorganosiloxane compound ordinarily contained in a silicone-based pressure-sensitive adhesive, which can play a role of imparting a constant storage elastic modulus and cohesive force to the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition.

    [0023] In one example, the first silicone gum may be represented by Formula 1 below.



    [0024] In Formula 1 above, R1 and R6 are each independently a silyl group or silanol group with or without an alkyl group, an alkenyl group or an aryl group, R2 to R5 are each independently an alkyl group, an alkenyl group or an aryl group, and n and m are each independently an integer in a range of 1 to 10,000.

    [0025] In the present application, the term "alkyl group" may mean an alkyl group having 1 to 20 carbon atoms, 1 to 16 carbon atoms, 1 to 12 carbon atoms, 1 to 8 carbon atoms, 1 to 6 carbon atoms or 1 to 4 carbon atoms, unless otherwise specified. The alkyl group may be linear, branched or cyclic. The alkyl group can be exemplified by a linear or branched alkyl group such as a methyl group, an ethyl group, an n-propyl group, an isopropyl group, an n-butyl group, an isobutyl group, a sec-butyl group, a t-butyl group, an n-pentyl group, an isopentyl group, a neopentyl group, an n-hexyl group, an n-heptyl group or an n-octyl group, or a cycloalkyl group such as a cyclobutyl group, a cyclopentyl group, a cyclohexyl group or a cycloheptyl group, and the like. In addition, the alkyl group may be optionally substituted with one or more substituents.

    [0026] In the present application, the term "alkenyl group" may mean an alkenyl group having 2 to 20 carbon atoms, 2 to 16 carbon atoms, 2 to 12 carbon atoms, 2 to 8 carbon atoms, 2 to 6 carbon atoms, or 2 to 4 carbon atoms, unless otherwise specified. The alkenyl group may be linear, branched or cyclic. The alkenyl group can be exemplified by a vinyl group, a 1-propenyl group, a 2-propenyl group, a 1-butenyl group, a 2-butenyl group or a 3-butenyl group, and the like. Also, the alkenyl group may be optionally substituted with one or more substituents.

    [0027] In the present application, the term "aryl group" may mean a monovalent residue derived from a compound comprising a benzene ring or a structure in which two or more benzene rings are condensed or bonded, or a derivative thereof, unless otherwise specified. In the range of the aryl group, not only a functional group commonly called an aryl group, but also a so-called aralkyl group or arylalkyl group, and the like can be included. The aryl group may be, for example, an aryl group having 6 to 25 carbon atoms, 6 to 21 carbon atoms, 6 to 18 carbon atoms, or 6 to 12 carbon atoms. The aryl group can be exemplified by a phenyl group, a phenoxy group, a phenoxyphenyl group, a phenoxybenzyl group, a dichlorophenyl group, a chlorophenyl group, a phenylethyl group, a phenylpropyl group, a benzyl group, a tolyl group, a xylyl group or a naphthyl group, and the like. In addition, the aryl group may be optionally substituted with one or more substituents.

    [0028] In the present application, the term "silanol group" means a functional group comprising Si-OH units.

    [0029] In the present application, the term "silyl group" means a generic term of a functional group comprising silicon atoms.

    [0030] In the present application, a specific functional group, for example, the substituent which may be substituted in the alkyl group, alkenyl group or aryl group can be exemplified by an alkyl group, an alkoxy group, an alkenyl group, an epoxy group, a cyano group, a thiol group, a carboxyl group, an acryloyl group, a methacryloyl group, an acryloyloxy group, a methacryloyloxy group or aryl group, and the like, but is not limited thereto.

    [0031] The first silicone gum may have, for example, a number average molecular weight in a range of 400,000 to 800,000. Within the range of the number average molecular weight, it is possible to provide a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition preventing a rapid change in storage elastic modulus and having an appropriate cohesive force.

    [0032] Here, the number average molecular weight may be a value measured by a known measuring method using gel permeation chromatography (GPC).

    [0033] In another example, the silicone gum may have a number average molecular weight in the range of 500,000 to 800,000 or 700,000 to 800,000.

    [0034] The first silicone gum may also have a suitable cross-linkable functional group to have a good cross-linking degree.

    [0035] In one example, the first silicone gum may have a content of a cross-linkable functional group, for example, a vinyl group in a range of 0.5 mol% to 1.5 mol% or 0.5 mol% to 1 mol%. Within the content range of the cross-linkable functional group as above, it is possible to have a good cross-linking degree and to secure appropriate pressure-sensitive adhesive force and cohesive force.

    [0036] The first pressure-sensitive adhesive may also comprise an MQ resin.

    [0037] Here, the term "MQ resin" also means a silicone compound having a three-dimensional reticular steric molecular structure comprising a monofunctional siloxane unit (hereinafter, referred to as "M unit") and a tetrafunctional siloxane unit (hereinafter, referred to as "Q unit"). In addition, the MQ resin may further comprise other bifunctional siloxane units (hereinafter, referred to as "D units") or trifunctional siloxane units (hereinafter, referred to as "T units").

    [0038] Here, the M unit means a unit represented by a formula (R3SiO1/2) in the industry; the D unit means a unit represented by a formula (R2SiO2/2) in the industry; the T unit means a unit represented by a formula (R2SiO3/2) in the industry; and the "Q unit" means a unit represented by a formula (SiO4/2). Here, R means a functional group bonded to a silicon atom (Si).

    [0039] The MQ resin plays a role of imparting pressure-sensitive adhesive force into the pressure-sensitive adhesive, where the first pressure-sensitive adhesive is a low pressure-sensitive adhesive having a relatively low peel force on a glass substrate, so that it may have a very low content of MQ resin over the second pressure-sensitive adhesive.

    [0040] In one example, the first pressure-sensitive adhesive may comprise the first MQ resin in a content of less than 5 wt%. If the content of the first MQ resin is 5 wt% or more, the pressure-sensitive adhesive force may be excessively increased and the storage elastic modulus may be changed radically, which is not preferable.

    [0041] In another example, the first pressure-sensitive adhesive may comprise the first MQ resin in a content of less than 4 wt%, less than 3 wt%, less than 2 wt%, or less than 1 wt%. The upper limit value of the first MQ resin content may be, for example, 0.0001 wt% or more, 0.001 wt% or more, or 0.01 wt% or more.

    [0042] In a specific example, the first pressure-sensitive adhesive may comprise 0.0001 to 5 parts by weight of the first MQ resin relative to 100 parts by weight of the first silicone gum. In another example, it may comprise 0.001 to 4.5 parts by weight or 0.01 to 4 parts by weight of the first MQ resin.

    [0043] The first MQ resin may be represented by, for example, Formula 2 below, but is not limited thereto.



    [0044] In Formula 2 above, R is hydrogen, a monovalent hydrocarbon group, or an alkenyl group.

    [0045] The monovalent hydrocarbon group can be exemplified by an alkyl group, an aliphatic cyclic group or an aromatic cyclic group, and the like.

    [0046] More specifically, the alkyl group can be exemplified by an alkyl group such as methyl, ethyl, propyl or pentyl, and the aliphatic cyclic group can be exemplified by cyclohexyl or the like, and the aromatic cyclic group can be exemplified by phenyl, tolyl, xylyl or benzyl, and the like, without being limited thereto.

    [0047] Furthermore, the alkenyl group can be exemplified by vinyl, allyl, butenyl, hexenyl or cyclohexenyl, and the like.

    [0048] Meanwhile, the monovalent hydrocarbon group or the alkenyl group may exist in a radical form.

    [0049] The first MQ resin may further comprise, for example, a D unit or a T unit, where it is preferred that the ratio of the D unit and the T unit further included is less than 5 mol%.

    [0050] For example, the first MQ resin may have a ratio of the M unit to the Q unit (M: Q) in a range of 0.6: 1 to 1.7: 1 or 0.7: 1 to 1: 1. When the M unit is less than 0.6 relative to the Q unit, the initial pressure-sensitive adhesive force may be lowered, and when it exceeds 1.7, the cohesive force may be lowered, which is not preferable.

    [0051] The first MQ resin may comprise a silanol group, where the content of the silanol group may be, for example, in the range of 0.1 mol% to 8 mol% or 0.2 mol% to 5 mol%. When the content of the silanol group is less than 0.1 mol%, the cross-linking density is lowered and the cohesive force is lowered, which is not preferable, and when it exceeds 8 mol%, the adhesive force is lowered, which is not preferable.

    [0052] The first MQ resin may comprise, for example, the hydrogen atom in a ratio of 1 to 3 mol% relative to the entire functional group bonded to the silicon atom. By controlling the ratio of the hydrogen atom within the above range, it is possible to prevent an uncured problem, or deterioration of storage stability or the like.

    [0053] The first MQ resin may have, for example, a number average molecular weight in the range of 3,000 to 7,000. When the MQ resin having a number average molecular weight within the above range is used, excellent cohesive force and adhesive force can be achieved.

    [0054] The above-described first pressure-sensitive adhesive is a low pressure-sensitive adhesive having a low adhesive force, and has a peel force on a glass substrate of 10 gf/in or less, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees. In another example, the peel force on a glass substrate may be 9 gf/in or less, 8 gf/in or less, 7 gf/in or less, 6 gf/in or less, 5 gf/in or less, 4 gf/in or less, or 3 gf/in or less. The lower limit value of the peel force of the first pressure-sensitive adhesive on a glass substrate is not particularly limited, but may be 0.1 gf/in or more, for example. 1 gf/in = 0.000386 N/mm.

    [0055] The first pressure-sensitive adhesive is included in the composition in a range of 5 wt% to 50 wt% relative to the total solid content of the composition. In another example, the first pressure-sensitive adhesive may be included in the composition in a range of 8 wt% to 45 wt% or 10 wt% to 30 wt% relative to the total solid content of the composition.

    [0056] The pressure-sensitive adhesive composition of the present application further comprises a second pressure-sensitive adhesive. The second pressure-sensitive adhesive has a peel force on a glass substrate of 0.0772 to 0.1544 N/mm (200 to 400 gf/in) as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees.

    [0057] The second pressure-sensitive adhesive is a high pressure-sensitive adhesive component having a relatively high pressure-sensitive adhesive force as compared with the first pressure-sensitive adhesive, and has a high peel force on a glass substrate.

    [0058] The second pressure-sensitive adhesive comprises a second silicone gum and a second MQ resin.

    [0059] The second pressure-sensitive adhesive may have a storage elastic modulus measured at -40°C of 107 Pa or less. When the second pressure-sensitive adhesive having the storage elastic modulus as described above is mixed with the first pressure-sensitive adhesive, a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition having a storage elastic modulus after curing over a temperature interval of -40°C to 90°C, of 5.0 x 106 Pa or less, can be provided.

    [0060] The second silicone gum may be the same as or different from the above-described first silicone gum.

    [0061] In one example, the second silicone gum may have a structure different from the above-described first silicone gum.

    [0062] More specifically, the second silicone gum may have a low cross-linking degree and a high cross-linking density in order to secure the property that the second pressure-sensitive adhesive has high pressure-sensitive adhesive force.

    [0063] In one example, the second silicone gum may be linear polydimethylsiloxane comprising hydroxy groups at both ends. The linear polydimethylsiloxane having hydroxy groups at both ends means polydimethylsiloxane having a linear structure in which in Formula 1 above, R2 to R5 are all methyl groups and R1 and R6 are Si(CH3)2OH.

    [0064] The linear polydimethylsiloxane may be, for example, one that the hydroxy group is in a range of 0.5 mol% to 5 mol% or 1 mol% to 4 mol% relative to the total methyl groups contained in the polydimethylsiloxane. When the hydroxy group is in the above range, it is possible to prevent a curing problem, such as the uncured, by achieving an appropriate cross-linking degree, and to improve long-term properties such as a storage property.

    [0065] The second silicone gum may also have a number average molecular weight in the range of 500,000 to 1,000,000. In another example, the second silicone gum may have a number average molecular weight in the range of 500,000 to 900,000 or 700,000 to 900,000. When the silicone gum having the number average molecular weight within the above range is used, it is possible to provide a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition preventing a rapid change of a storage elastic modulus over an interval from a low temperature of 40°C to a high temperature of 90°C and having an appropriate cohesive force.

    [0066] The second silicone gum may have an appropriate viscosity in consideration of pressure-sensitive adhesive force, workability and reactivity with the MQ resin, and the like.

    [0067] The second silicone gum may have, for example, a viscosity measured under a condition of 25°C and 50% relative humidity in a range of 1,000,000 cP to 100,000,000 cP. In another example, the second silicone gum may have a viscosity measured under a condition of 25°C and 50% relative humidity in the range of 1,500,000 cP to 70,000,000 cP. If the viscosity is less than 1,000,000 cP, the reactivity or the pressure-sensitive adhesive force may be lowered, and if the viscosity exceeds 100,000,000 cP, the workability may be significantly lowered.

    [0068] The second MQ resin may be the same as or different from the above-described first MQ resin.

    [0069] The second MQ resin is a component that provides the adhesive force and cohesive force of the pressure-sensitive adhesive, like the first MQ resin, and a constitution that can change the storage elastic modulus according to the content thereof.

    [0070] On the other hand, the second pressure-sensitive adhesive has a high pressure-sensitive adhesive property, and may have the MQ resin content higher than that of the first pressure-sensitive adhesive. However, when the content of the second MQ resin is too large, the storage elastic modulus of the second adhesive may exceed 107 Pa at -40°C, so that the second adhesive may comprise the second MQ resin within an appropriate range.

    [0071] In one example, the second pressure-sensitive adhesive may comprise the second MQ resin in a content of 40 wt% or less. In another example, the second pressure-sensitive adhesive may comprise the second MQ resin in a ratio of 38 wt% or less, 36 wt% or less, 34 wt% or less, 32 wt% or less, or 30 wt% or less, and preferably, it may be 36 wt% or less. The lower limit value of the second MQ resin content may be, for example, 5 wt% or more, 10 wt% or more, or 15 wt% or more. When the content of the second MQ resin in the second pressure-sensitive adhesive is controlled within the above range, it is possible to provide a second pressure-sensitive adhesive having a storage elastic modulus at -40°C of 1.0 x 107 Pa or less.

    [0072] In a specific example, the second pressure-sensitive adhesive may comprise 60 to 95 parts by weight of a second silicone gum and 5 to 40 parts by weight of a second MQ resin. In another example, the second pressure-sensitive adhesive comprises 64 to 90 parts by weight of a second silicone gum and 10 to 36 parts by weight of a second MQ resin, or 70 to 85 parts by weight of a second silicone gum and 25 to 30 parts by weight of a second MQ resin.

    [0073] The pressure-sensitive adhesive composition of the present application comprises the above-described first pressure-sensitive adhesive and second pressure-sensitive adhesive in a predetermined ratio.

    [0074] In one example, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition comprises the first pressure-sensitive adhesive in a range of 5 wt% to 50 wt% relative to the total solid content of the composition. In another example, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition may comprise the first pressure-sensitive adhesive in a range of 8 wt% to 40 wt% or 9 wt% to 35 wt% of the total solid content.

    [0075] The content of the second pressure-sensitive adhesive can be changed depending on the content of the first pressure-sensitive adhesive in the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition, and so the second pressure-sensitive adhesive is included in the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition in a content within the range of 50 wt% to 95 wt%, for example 55 wt% to 94 wt%, or 70 wt% to 90 wt%, relative to the total solid content of the composition.

    [0076] The pressure-sensitive adhesive composition according to the present application also comprises an additive for reinforcing the low adhesive force of the silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive as above.

    [0077] That is, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display according to the present application comprises, together with the silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive, any one additive selected from the group consisting of a borane compound, a borate compound and a mixture thereof.

    [0078] Due to the addition of the additive, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display can be provided, which has excellent adhesive property, and for example, a peel force on a glass substrate of 0.00772 N/mm (20 gf/in) or more, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees after curing.

    [0079] The borane compound in the additive may be represented by, for example, Formula 3.



    [0080] In Formula 3, R4 to R6 are each independently hydrogen, halogen, an alkyl group having 1 to 6 carbon atoms, or a silyl group.

    [0081] The borate compound in the additive may be represented by Formula 4 below.



    [0082] In Formula 4, R7 to R9 are each independently hydrogen, halogen, an alkyl group having 1 to 6 carbon atoms, or a silyl group.

    [0083] In a more specific example, the borane compound or the borate compound may be exemplified by triethyl borate, ethyl borane or methyl borane, and the like, but is not limited thereto, where the borane compound or the borate compound to play a role in improving the adhesive physical property of the silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive may be used without limitation.

    [0084] The additive may be contained in the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition in such an amount that can secure the desired adhesive force of the pressure-sensitive adhesive by improving the adhesive physical property of the silicone pressure-sensitive adhesive.

    [0085] In one example, the additive may be included in the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition in a range of 0.01 to 5 wt% relative to the total solid content of the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition. If the content of the additive exceeds 5 wt%, the adhesive force may be excessively increased or an aggregation phenomenon between the additives may occur, and if the content of the additive is less than 0.01 wt%, the object of improving the adhesive physical property may not be achieved.

    [0086] In another example, the additive may be included in the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition in a range of 0.05 to 4 wt% or 0.1 to 3 wt%, relative to the total solid content of the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition.

    [0087] The pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display according to the present application may further comprise an organic solvent.

    [0088] The organic solvent has solubility in the silicone gum and the MQ resin, which can be exemplified by, for example, a saturated hydrocarbon-based organic solvent, a halogenated hydrocarbon solvent, and an aromatic hydrocarbon-based organic solvent.

    [0090] The pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display of the present application can have a low storage elastic modulus characteristic over a temperature interval of 40°C to 90°C by comprising the first and second pressure-sensitive adhesives, and can also secure excellent adhesive force and cohesive force due to the additive.

    [0091] In one example, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition of the present application may have a storage elastic modulus (G') of 5.0 x 106 Pa or less after curing within a temperature range of -40°C to 90°C.

    [0092] The storage elastic modulus may be, for example, a value measured according to a manual using a rheometer (Advanced Rheometric Expansion System, Ta Instruments) under a condition of a frequency of 0.1 rad/s to 100 rad/s and a strain rate of 10% or less.

    [0093] In one example, the storage elastic modulus may be measured using a G2 series rheometer from TA instruments under a condition of a frequency of 6.2 rad/s and a strain rate of 10% or less depending on temperatures, while varying the temperature from -40°C to 90°C, and derived.

    [0094] In addition, the lower limit value of the storage elastic modulus of the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition after curing within the above temperature range may be, for example, 1.0 x 103 Pa.

    [0095] In a more specific example, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition of the present application has a storage elastic modulus value in the range of 1.0 x 103 Pa to 5.0 x 106 Pa, 5.0 x 103 Pa to 3.0 x 106 Pa or 1.0 x 104 Pa to 1.0 x 106 Pa over a temperature interval of -40°C to 90°C. Within the above storage elastic modulus range, it is possible to secure the superiority of the bending reliability suitable for the foldable display.

    [0096] In addition, as described above, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display has a peel force on a glass substrate of 0.00772 N/mm (20 gf/in) or more, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees after curing.

    [0097] In another example, the pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display has a peel force on a glass substrate of 25 gf/in or more, 27 gf/in or more, 28 gf/in or more, 29 gf/in or more, or 30 gf/in or more, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees after curing, where 1 gf/in = 0.000386 N/mm.

    [0098] The present application is also directed to a foldable display. The foldable display of the present application can secure excellent bending reliability required for a foldable display, as well as excellent cohesive force and adhesive force by comprising the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer which is a cured product of the above-described pressure-sensitive adhesive composition.

    [0099] That is, the present application is directed to a foldable display comprising a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer which is a cured product of a pressure-sensitive adhesive composition for a foldable display attached to an adherend. The pressure-sensitive adhesive composition comprises: a first pressure-sensitive adhesive; a second pressure-sensitive adhesive; and any one additive selected from the group consisting of a borane compound, a borate compound and a mixture thereof. Furthermore, the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer has a peel force on a glass substrate of 0.007720 N/mm (20 gf/in) or more, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees.

    [0100] The pressure-sensitive adhesive layer in the foldable display of the present application is attached on the adherend.

    [0101] The adherend may be, for example, a base film.

    [0102] The base film may also be, for example, a transparent base film having a haze of 10% or less, or 5% or less, or may also be a colored base film having a haze of 30% or more.

    [0103] As the base film, for example, those formed from polyolefin such as polyethylene or polypropylene; polyester such as polyethylene terephthalate and polyethylene naphthalate; cellulose such as triacetylcellulose, diacetylcellulose, propionylcellulose, butylcellulose or acetylcellulose; polyamide such as 6-nylon or 6,6-nylon; an acrylic polymer such as polymethyl methacrylate; and an organic polymer such as polystyrene, polyvinyl chloride, polyimide, polyvinyl alcohol, polycarbonate or ethylene vinyl alcohol can be used, without being limited thereto.

    [0104] The base film may also be one formed from one or a mixture of two or more of the foregoing or a polymer, and may also be one having a structure in which a plurality of layers are laminated.

    [0105] The base film may be, for example, one whose surface has been modified. The surface modification may be performed for the purpose of increasing the pressure-sensitive adhesive force with the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer, and specifically, a treatment method such as chemical treatment, corona discharge treatment, mechanical treatment, ultraviolet (UV) treatment, active plasma treatment or glow discharge treatment may be adopted, without being limited thereto.

    [0106] In one example, when the adherend is a base film, the base film and the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer may form covalent bonds via the silanol group contained in the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer by the above surface treatment of the base film and a surface treatment process of a pressure-sensitive adhesive layer to be described below.

    [0107] That is, in the case of performing the surface treatment process of the base film, a functional group such as -OH is induced on the base film, and the functional group can help to firmly maintain bonding between the base film and the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer as a whole, by forming a covalent bond with the silanol group.

    [0108] Furthermore, the base film may comprise known additives, such as an antistatic agent, an ultraviolet absorber, an infrared absorber, a plasticizer, a lubricant, a colorant, an antioxidant or a flame retardant.

    [0109] The pressure-sensitive adhesive layer may be, for example, one whose surface has been modified. The surface modification can be carried out to maintain a firm adhesive force with the adherend, for example, the base film. The surface modification method may be appropriately adopted from the above-described methods for modifying the surface of the base film.

    [0110] Through the surface modification, a silanol group can be formed in the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer, and the silanol group can form a covalent bond with a functional group such as -OH on the base film.

    [0111] By the surface treatment of the adherend and the adhesive layer as above, the adherend and the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer can secure excellent adhesive force.

    [0112] In one example, the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer included in the foldable display may have a peel force on the adherend of 0.7720 N/mm (2000 gf/in) or more, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees.

    [0113] In another example, the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer may have a peel force on the adherend of 0.8494 N/mm (2200 gf/in) or more or 0.9266 N/ mm (2400 gf/in) or more, as measured at a peel rate of 0.3 m/min and a peel angle of 180 degrees.

    [0114] The foldable display according to the present application may further comprise a polarizing plate, wherein the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer may be formed on one or both sides of the polarizing plate.

    [0115] As the method of forming the pressure-sensitive adhesive layer, for example, a method of coating a composition comprising a first pressure-sensitive adhesive, a second pressure-sensitive adhesive, an additive and other solvents, and the like on any support and then curing it can be used.

    [0116] The method of coating and curing is not particularly limited, and for example, may comprise coating using a known method such as bar coating, gravure coating, reverse roll coating, reverse gravure coating, slot die coating, comma coating, spray coating, knife coating, die coating, dip coating, micro gravure coating or wire bar coating, followed by curing with application of appropriate heat.
