Description

[Technical Field]



[0001] The present specification claims priority to and the benefit of Korean Patent Application No. 10-2017-0154106 filed in the Korean Intellectual Property Office on November 17, 2017, the entire contents of which are incorporated herein by reference.

[0002] The present invention relates to a foam composition and a foam tape including a foam layer including a cured product thereof.

[Background Art]



[0003] In order to manufacture a car body by coupling members for a vehicle, a method of locating and laminating a foam tape between the members has been used.

[0004] Recently, as the weight of a car body tends to be reduced, studies have been actively conducted on a foam tape capable of implementing excellent impact resistance while being able to reduce the weight of the car body through a foam tape having a foam layer having small thickness and low density.

[0005] In order to meet the recent technical trend, a method of using styrene-based rubber such as styrene-butadiene-styrene copolymer or styrene-isoprene-styrene copolymer has been emerging. However, the method has problem in that the weight reduction performance and impact resistance of the car body are slightly insufficient because styrene-based rubber having relatively high density is used.

[0006] Thus, there is a need for studies on a foam tape which is excellent in impact resistance while being able to reduce the weight of a car body.

[0014] When the foam tape according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention is used for bonding members for an automobile, it is possible to implement reduction of the weight of an automotive car body.

[Best Mode]



[0015] When one part "includes" one constituent element in the present specification, unless otherwise specifically described, this does not mean that another constituent element is excluded, but means that another constituent element may be further included.

[0016] In the present specification, the term "monomer polymerization unit" may mean a form in which the monomer forms a skeleton of the polymer, for example, a main chain or a side chain by being subjected to a polymerization reaction.

[0017] In the present specification, the unit "part by weight" may mean a weight ratio between the respective components.

[0018] In the present specification, the term "(meth)acrylate" may mean acrylate or methacrylate.

[0019] In the present specification, the term "monomer" may mean a unit body for forming polymer, and may mean prepolymer consisting of the same repeating unit.

[0021] In the present specification, the term "alkyl group" may mean those including a carbon chain structure in which an unsaturated bond is not present in a functional group, and may mean those including a straight-chained or branched carbon chain structure having 1 to 20 carbon atoms.

[0023] In the present specification, the term "glass transition temperature (Tg)" may be a value determined as a middle point of DSC curve by heating the corresponding test specimen at a heating rate of 10°C/min within a temperature range of -70°C to 150°C using a differential scanning calorimeter (DSC, Q-1000, TA Instrument) and measuring the temperature.

[0024] In the present specification, the term "weight average molecular weight" may be measured as a value converted into polystyrene as determined by gel permeation chromatography (GPC).

[0025] The present inventors confirmed that there is a problem in the case of manufacturing a foam tape including a styrene-based rubber consisting of styrene-based block copolymer such as styrene-butadiene-styrene or styrene-isoprene-styrene in a foam layer as in the method in the related art. Specifically, the present inventors confirmed that the method in the related art is not suitable for the reduction in weight of a car body when a foam tape is applied to members for an automobile due to high density characteristics of the styrene-based rubber. As a result of assiduous efforts to alleviate the problem, the present inventors have completed the present invention.

[0026] Specifically, the present inventors confirmed that when a foam tape is prepared by using a low-density olefin resin instead of styrene-based rubber, the foam tape is excellent in durability and has high adhesive strength and tensile strength, and the weight of a car body can be reduced, thereby completing the present invention.

[0027] Hereinafter, the present specification will be described in more detail.

[0028] An exemplary embodiment of the present invention provides a foam composition including: olefin resin having a density of 0.7 g/cm3 to 0.9 g/cm3, a glass transition temperature of -30°C or less, and a melting point of 50°C to 125°C; and a hollow microsphere.

[0029] A foam composition according to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention may include the olefin resin, specifically, olefin resin having a density and a glass transition temperature within the above ranges, thereby securing durability of a foam tape including a foam layer prepared by using the olefin resin and simultaneously implementing the reduction of the weight of a member to be adhered.

[0030] Further, the foam composition may include the olefin resin, thereby providing a foam tape having high adhesive strength and tensile strength due to excellent physical and chemical bonding strengths with acrylic copolymer included in an adhesive layer of a foam tape as described below.

[0031] In the present specification, the olefin resin may be olefin resin in which the double bond of olefin unit body including a double bond may be converted into a single bond and included in a polymerization unit to form a chain.

[0032] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the olefin resin may have a density of 0.7 g/cm3 to 0.9 g/cm3, 0.7 g/cm3 to 0.85 g/cm3, 0.8 g/cm3 to 0.9 g/cm3, 0.85 g/cm3 to 0.9 g/cm3, or 0.87 g/cm3 to 0.89 g/cm3.

[0033] In addition, the density of the olefin resin may mean the mass of olefin resin with respect to the volume thereof, and may be measured in accordance with ASTM D1505 standard.

[0034] A foam tape including a foam layer prepared by using a foam composition including olefin resin within the density range may implement the reduction in weight of a car body when applied to members for an automobile.

[0035] Specifically, when the density of the olefin resin is less than the above range, the durability of the foam tape deteriorates, so that there may occur a problem in that the strength of the foam tape is reduced, and when the density of the olefin resin is more than the above range, there may occur a problem in that a sufficient adhesive strength of the foam tape cannot be secured.

[0036] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the olefin resin may have a glass transition temperature of -30°C or less, specifically, -100°C to -30°C, -100°C to -40°C, -100°C to -50°C, -70°C to -30°C, -70°C to -40°C, -70°C to -50°C, -60°C to -30°C, -60°C to -40°C, - 55°C to -45°C, or -60°C to -50°C.

[0037] A foam layer prepared by using a foam composition including olefin resin within the above glass transition temperature range may implement soft physical properties and may improve the bendability of the foam tape.

[0038] Specifically, when the temperature range of the olefin resin is less than the glass transition temperature range, there may occur a problem with punchability of a foam tape to be described below, and when the temperature range of the olefin resin is more than the glass transition temperature range, soft physical properties of the foam layer are not implemented, so that it may be difficult to implement the reduction of the weight of a member to be adhered.

[0039] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the olefin resin may have a melting point (Tm) of 50°C to 125°C, 50°C to 100°C, 50°C to 91°C, 50°C to 80°C, 50°C to 70°C, 55°C to 125°C, 55°C to 100°C, 55°C to 80°C, or 55°C to 70°C.

[0040] Within the above melting point range of the olefin resin, it is possible to provide a foam tape having high tensile strength and adhesive strength while being excellent in heat resistance. Specifically, within the above melting point range of the olefin resin, there are advantages in that it is possible to minimize damage caused by heat of the foam tape, and it is possible to allow the foam tape to be easily attached even to various members having a form such as a curved surface.

[0041] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the foam composition includes a hollow microsphere.

[0042] The foam composition may include a hollow microsphere, thereby forming bubbles in a foam layer included in a foam tape when the foam composition is cured, and accordingly, it is possible to impart flexibility and impact resistance to the foam tape.

[0043] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the hollow microsphere may be a hollow polymer microsphere.

[0044] In the present specification, the term "hollow" means a form in which the inside thereof is empty, and the term "microsphere" may mean micro-sized spherical particles. In this case, 'spherical' does not mean a shape of a geometrically perfect sphere, and may mean a shape typically recognized as a shape of a sphere. Further, the form in which the inside thereof is empty means that a liquid or solid component is not included, and a gas component that is not visually perceived may be included.

[0045] In addition, since the hollow polymer microsphere is a low-density polymer composition and has a low specific weight, there are advantages in that it is possible to reduce the weight, the processing is easy, and production costs may be reduced because the hollow polymer microsphere is introduced in a relatively small content.

[0046] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the hollow microsphere may have a particle size of 30 µm to 200 µm, 30 µm to 85 µm, 55 µm to 200 µm, or 55 µm to 85 µm.

[0047] Within the particle size range of the hollow microsphere, the hollow microsphere may be appropriately dispersed in the foam composition, and may implement the impact resistance and flexibility of a foam layer including a cured product of the foam composition.

[0048] In the present specification, the particle size of the hollow microsphere may mean a particle diameter of a hollow microsphere measured according to the standard suggested by the Technical Bulletin No. 8b provided by AkzoNobel Co., Ltd.

[0049] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the hollow microsphere may have a density of 0.01 g/cm3 to 0.05 g/cm3, 0.01 g/cm3 to 0.04 g/cm3, 0.03 g/cm3 to 0.05 g/cm3, or 0.03 g/cm3 to 0.04 g/cm3.

[0050] When a hollow microsphere within the above density range is included, the foam composition may prevent the hollow microsphere from being scattered, and may allow the hollow microsphere to be appropriately dispersed in the foam layer.

[0051] In the present specification, the density of the hollow microsphere may mean a mass per unit volume of a hollow microsphere measured according to the standard suggested by the Technical Bulletin No. 26 provided by AkzoNobel Co., Ltd.

[0052] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, a content of the hollow microsphere may be 1 part by weight to 10 parts by weight, 1 part by weight to 5 parts by weight, 2 parts by weight to 10 parts by weight, or 2 parts by weight to 5 parts by weight with respect to 100 parts by weight of the olefin resin.

[0053] When a hollow microsphere within the above content range is included, the foam composition may be prepared into a foam layer that is easily shrunk and has high durability. Specifically, when a hollow microsphere within the above content range is included, the foam layer may be laminated with an adhesive layer as described below with high bonding strength because the hollow microsphere may be uniformly dispersed in the foam composition.

[0054] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the olefin resin may include at least one of non-modified polyolefin and silane-modified polyolefin.

[0055] Specifically, when the olefin resin includes silane-modified polyolefin, the foam composition may be chemically bonded to acrylic copolymer in an adhesive composition to be described below to prevent the separation of a foam layer and an adhesive layer of a foam tape, and a cross-linking bond in the foam composition may be promoted by the acrylic copolymer.

[0056] Further, when the olefin resin includes the non-modified polyolefin, the foam composition may be chemically bonded to acrylic copolymer in an adhesive composition to be described below to prevent the separation of a foam layer and an adhesive layer of a foam tape while the foam composition is cured, and a cross-linking bond between components in the foam layer may be promoted while the foam composition is cured.

[0057] Specifically, when the olefin resin includes the non-modified polyolefin, the foam composition may be chemically bonded to acrylic copolymer in an adhesive composition to be described below while the foam composition is cured by irradiation of electron beam, and a cross-linking bond between components in the foam layer may be promoted while the foam composition is cured by irradiation of an electron beam.

[0058] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the non-modified polyolefin may mean that a separate functional group other than olefin unit body is not bonded during the polymerization of the olefin unit body.

[0059] In addition, the silane-modified polyolefin may mean silane-modified polyolefin in which when olefin unit body is polymerized into polyolefin, functional group including silane is bonded, or functional group including silane is substituted in or added to the polymerized polyolefin.

[0060] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the silane-modified polyolefin may be silane-modified polyolefin in which a polymerization unit derived from unsaturated silane compound is graft-polymerized with the non-modified polyolefin.

[0061] Specifically, the silane-modified polyolefin may mean silane-modified polyolefin in which a polymerization unit derived from the unsaturated silane compound is graft-polymerized with a main chain at one side of olefin polymerization unit included in the non-modified polyolefin. That is, the silane-modified polyolefin may include olefin polymerization unit modified into a polymerization unit derived from unsaturated silane compound.

[0062] That is, the modified polyolefin may be modified polyolefin in which carbon radicals at one side of olefin polymerization unit included in the non-modified polyolefin may be chemically bonded to silicon radicals derived from the unsaturated silane compound, and specifically, are radically bonded.

[0063] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the silane-modified polyolefin may be silane-modified polyolefin prepared by reacting non-modified polyolefin and unsaturated silane compound with radical initiator. Specifically, the silane-modified polyolefin may be silane-modified polyolefin prepared by using silane-modified composition including the non-modified polyolefin, the unsaturated silane compound, and the radical initiator. More specifically, the silane-modified polyolefin may be silane-modified polyolefin prepared by reacting and extruding the silane-modified composition.

[0064] That is, the silane-modified polyolefin may be silane-modified polyolefin obtained by creating a high temperature and high pressure atmosphere in the silane-modified composition to induce a reaction in the silane-modified composition and extruding the silane-modified composition prepared through the reaction.

[0065] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the silane-modified polyolefin may be separately prepared by reacting and extruding separate silane-modified composition as described above and introduced into the foam composition.

[0066] Furthermore, the silane-modified polyolefin may be prepared by introducing unsaturated silane compound and radical initiator into a foam composition including the non-modified polyolefin and reacting the unsaturated silane compound and the radical initiator with the foam composition, and may be specifically prepared by reacting and extruding the unsaturated silane compound, the radical initiator, and the foam composition.

[0067] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the radical initiator may induce each of the non-modified polyolefin and the unsaturated silane compound to form radicals, and the non-modified polyolefin and the unsaturated silane compound in which radicals are formed may be chemically bonded to each other to prepare the silane-modified polyolefin.

[0068] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the unsaturated silane compound may include at least one of vinyltrimethoxy silane, vinyltriethoxy silane, vinyltripropoxy silane, vinyltriisopropoxy silane, vinyltributoxy silane, vinyltripentoxy silane, vinyltriphenoxy silane, and vinyltriacetoxy silane. However, the unsaturated silane compound is not limited thereto, and may be used without limitation as long as the unsaturated silane compound is a compound that may induce the silane modification of the non-modified polyolefin and includes silane.

[0069] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, the radical initiator may include at least one of t-butylcumylperoxide, di-t-butylperoxide, di-cumylperoxide, 2,5-dimethyl-2,5-di(t-butylperoxy)hexane, 2,5-dimethyl-2,5-di(t-peroxy)hexane, cumene hydroperoxide, diisopropyl benzene hydroperoxide, 2,5-dimethyl-2,5-di(hydroperoxy)hexane, t-butyl hydroperoxide, bis-3,5,5-trimethylhexanoyl peroxide, octanoyl peroxide, benzoyl peroxide, o-methylbenzoyl peroxide, 2,4-dichlorobenzoyl peroxide, t-butylperoxy isobutylate, t-butylperoxy acetate, t-butylperoxy-2-ethylhexanoate, t-butylperoxy pivalate, t-butylperoxy octoate, t-butylperoxyisopropyl carbonate, t-butylperoxy benzoate, di-t-butylperoxy phthalate, 2,5-dimethyl-2,5-di(benzoylperoxy)hexane, 2,5-dimethyl-2,5-di(benzoylperoxy)hexyne, methyl ethyl ketone peroxide, cyclohexanone peroxide, lauroyl peroxide, azobisisobutyronitrile, and azobis(2,4-dimethylvaleronitrile). However, the radical initiator is not limited thereto, and may be selected freely among radical initiators known in the art as long as the radical initiator may form radicals in the non-modified polyolefin and the unsaturated silane compound.

[0070] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, a content of the unsaturated silane compound may be 1 part by weight to 10 parts by weight, 1 part by weight to 6 parts by weight, 2 parts by weight to 10 parts by weight, or 2 parts by weight to 6 parts by weight with respect to 100 parts by weight of the non-modified polyolefin.

[0071] Meanwhile, the content of the unsaturated silane compound may mean a content with respect to the silane-modified composition when the silane-modified polyolefin is prepared by reacting and extruding separate silane-modified composition.

[0072] Further, the content of the unsaturated silane compound may mean a content with respect to the foam composition when the silane-modified polyolefin is prepared by introducing unsaturated silane compound and a radical initiator into a foam composition including the non-modified polyolefin and reacting the unsaturated silane compound and the radical initiator with the foam composition.

[0073] Within the above content range of the unsaturated silane compound, a bonding strength with the adhesive layer may be improved by sufficiently securing compatibility with acrylic copolymer in an adhesive layer of silane-modified polyolefin included in a foam composition. In addition, within the above content range of the unsaturated silane compound, the durability of the foam layer may be secured by allowing the non-modified polyolefin to be sufficiently modified.

[0074] According to an exemplary embodiment of the present invention, a content of the radical initiator may be 0.01 part by weight to 1 part by weight, 0.01 part by weight to 0.2 part by weight, 0.02 part by weight to 1 part by weight, or 0.02 part by weight to 0.2 part by weight with respect to 100 parts by weight of the non-modified polyolefin.

[0075] Meanwhile, the content of the radical initiator may mean a content with respect to the silane-modified composition when the silane-modified polyolefin is prepared by reacting and extruding separate silane-modified composition.

[0076] Furthermore, the content of the radical initiator may mean a content with respect to the foam composition when the silane-modified polyolefin is prepared by introducing unsaturated silane compound and radical initiator into a foam composition including the non-modified polyolefin and reacting the unsaturated silane compound and the radical initiator with the foam composition.

[0077] Within the above content range of the radical initiator, a polymerization unit that may be bonded to the non-modified polyolefin, specifically, a polymerization unit derived from the unsaturated silane compound is sufficiently produced, so that the non-modified polyolefin may be sufficiently modified with the unsaturated silane compound, and the chemical stability of the silane-modified polyolefin may be secured.

Measurement of Crosslinking Degree



[0163] The crosslinking degrees of the foam tapes according to Examples 1 to 4 and Comparative Examples 1 and 2 were measured by a method such as the following Equation 1.

In Equation 1,

[0164] A is a weight of each of the foam tape samples according to Examples 1 to 4 and Comparative Examples 1 and 2, which are cut into a size of 5 cm x 5 cm, and is measured as a difference between the weight of a bottle formed of polyethylene material, which contains xylene solvent into which the sample is introduced and the weight of a bottle formed of polyethylene material, which contains only xylene solvent,

[0165] B means a weight of iron network of #200 cut into a size of 14 cm x 14 cm, and

[0166] C means a weight measured after the sample is filtered with the iron network, and then the iron network where the residue of the sample is remaining is dried under a constant temperature condition of 110°C for 2 hours.

Measurement of Peel Strength



[0167] After each of the foam tapes according to Examples 1 to 4 and Comparative Examples 1 and 2 was stacked on polyethylene terephthalate (PET) film having a thickness of 50 µm, a sample for measuring the peel strength was prepared by attaching the other surface of the stacked foam tape to stainless steel substrate with a breadth of 2.5 cm X a length of 11 cm, which was polished with a tape strip.

[0168] The sample was stored under a constant temperature and constant humidity condition of 25°C and 50 RH% for 24 hours. Moreover, the peel strength of the sample was measured at a peel rate of 300 mm/min and a peel angle of 90° under a constant temperature and constant humidity condition of 25°C and 50 RH% by using Instron measuring machine.

Measurement of Tensile Strength and Break Elongation



[0169] A sample was prepared as a sample for measuring tensile strength and break elongation by cutting each of the foam tapes according to Examples 1 to 4 and Comparative Examples 1 and 2 into a dog-bone shape with a width of 0.635 mm in the middle portion thereof.

[0170] After the ends of the sample were fixed in Instron measuring machine, the sample was pulled at a tensile rate of 300 mm/min to measure the strength when the sample was broken as a tensile strength and the break elongation (%) through the length stretched when the sample was broken.

[0171] The results of evaluating physical properties according to Examples 1 to 4 and Comparative Examples 1 and 2 are shown in the following Table 1.
[Table 1]
ClassificationCrosslinking degree (wt%)180° Peel strength (N/2.5 cm)Tensile strength (MPa)Break elongation (%)
Example 1 70 87 8.0 920
Example 2 94 95 8.5 900
Example 3 92 93 8.5 800
Example 4 87 84 8.3 880
Comparative Example 1 90 68 5.0 500
Comparative Example 2 88 33 4.5 300


[0172] According to Table 1, it could be confirmed that the foam tapes in Examples 1 to 4 had crosslinking degrees sufficient enough to implement impact resistance. Further, it could be confirmed that the foam tapes in Examples 1 to 4 had excellent adhesive properties, specifically, high peel strength, tensile strength, and break elongation.

[0173] In contrast, it could be confirmed that in the case of the foam tape in Comparative Example 1, which included a foam layer prepared by using a foam composition including styrene-based rubber without including olefin resin, there was no big difference with the Examples in terms of crosslinking degree, but the peel strength, tensile strength, and break elongation were much less than those in the Examples. Furthermore, it could be confirmed that even in the case of the foam tape in Comparative Example 2, which included a foam layer prepared by using a foam composition including silane-modified polyolefin prepared by using linear polyethylene having a density of 0.93 g/cm3, a glass transition temperature of about -25°C, and a melting point of about 130°C, there was no big difference with the Examples in terms of a crosslinking degree, but the peel strength, tensile strength, and break elongation were much less than those in the Examples.

[0174] Therefore, it can be seen that the foam composition according to the present invention may include polyolefin resin in which the density, the glass transition temperature, and the melting point were adjusted, thereby implementing a foam tape having excellent adhesive properties while implementing weight reduction characteristics.
