(54)POLYMERIZABLE COMPOSITION FOR OPTICAL MEMBERS


(57) [1] A polymerizable composition for an optical component, including a polyisocyanate component, a polythiol component, and a compound represented by formula (1) in an amount of 5 ppm by mass or more and 10,000 ppm by mass or less with respect to the total amount of the polyisocyanate component and the polythiol component, [2] an optical component resin that is a polymerized product of the polymerizable composition according to the above-described [1], [3] a spectacle lens including a lens substrate that is formed of the optical component resin according to the above-described [2], and [4] spectacles including the spectacle lens according to the above-described [3].


Description

Technical Field



[0001] The present disclosure relates to a polymerizable composition used for an optical component such as a spectacle lens, and an optical component resin, a spectacle lens, and spectacles produced by using the same.

Background Art



[0002] A resin lens is advantageous in that it is lighter than a lens formed of an inorganic material such as inorganic glass, hard to crack, and stainable. Therefore, it is currently the main stream to use a resin lens as an optical component such as a spectacle lens or a camera lens.

[0003] As a raw material for a resin lens, a polyurethane-based resin such as thiourethane is used (e.g., Patent Literature 1), and a plastic lens formed of such a polyurethane-based resin is produced, for example, by injecting a mixed solution containing a polymerizable component into a molding die to obtain a molded product (e.g., Patent Literature 2).

[0004] Patent Literature 3 describes a method for producing a plastic lens as a plastic lens production method that is practical in terms of productivity and capable of producing a thick plastic lens which is free from optical distortion and a stria. The method is a method for producing a plastic lens including a filling step of filling a forming mold with a polymerizable composition, and a curing step of exposing the forming mold to a particular temperature condition to cure the polymerizable composition, and is characterized in that the curing step includes, after the filling step, a maintaining step of maintaining the temperature of the polymerizable composition at the initial temperature at the beginning of the filling step or higher, and, after the maintaining step, a cooling step of cooling the polymerizable composition.

Summary of Invention


Technical Problem



[0006]  As disclosed in Patent Literature 3, for example, when the polymerization time is reduced to obtain an optical component that is free from a stria or a cloud, the formation of a stria may be suppressed by optimizing the amount of a catalyst and the polymerization temperature conditions. However, a lot of steps are required for achieving the polymerization conditions.

[0007] In addition, in some cases, a lot of striae are still formed under such conditions.

[0008] Therefore, an embodiment of the present disclosure relates to a polymerizable composition for an optical component that can reduce the formation of a stria and a cloud, and an optical component resin, a spectacle lens, and spectacles produced by using the same.

Solution to Problem



[0009] The present inventors have found that the above-described problems can be solved by using a specific amount of a compound represented by formula (1) as a catalyst.

[0010] That is, an embodiment of the present disclosure relates to the following [1] to [4].
  1. [1] A polymerizable composition for an optical component, including a polyisocyanate component, a polythiol component, and a compound represented by formula (1) in an amount of 5 ppm by mass or more and 10,000 ppm by mass or less with respect to the total amount of the polyisocyanate component and the polythiol component

    wherein R1, R2, R3, and R4 each independently represent a hydrocarbon group, and X1 and X2 are each independently a hydrocarbon group, a hydroxy group, an alkoxy group, or an acyloxy group.
  2. [2] An optical component resin that is a polymerized product of the polymerizable composition according to the above-described [1].
  3. [3] A spectacle lens including a lens substrate that is formed of the optical component resin according to the above-described [2].
  4. [4] Spectacles including the spectacle lens according to the above-described [3].

Advantageous Effects of Invention

[Method for producing optical component such as spectacle lens]



[0073] The method for producing an optical component according to an embodiment of the present disclosure is described in more detail below.

[0074] The method for producing an optical component according to an embodiment of the present disclosure includes, for example,
a step of injecting the above-described polymerizable composition into a molding die (hereinafter, also referred to as "injection step"), and
a step of polymerizing the polymerizable composition (hereinafter, also referred to as "polymerization step").

<Injection step>



[0075] In the injection step, for example, the obtained polymerizable composition is injected into a molding die.

[0076] When a spectacle lens is produced as an optical component, for example, a molding die including a pair of molds that form both of two main surfaces of the spectacle lens, and a tape or a gasket for fixing these molds with a gap is used. The above-described mold may be formed of glass or metal.

[0077] The above-described polymerizable composition is suitable for producing a thick optical component, in which the formation of a stria more readily occur.

[0078] The maximum thickness in the molding die is preferably 5 to 30 mm, more preferably 5 to 25 mm, still more preferably 5 to 20 mm, even more preferably 6 to 20 mm, and further more preferably 10 to 20 mm.

[0079] The term "maximum thickness in a molding die" refers to a thickness at a portion where the gap is largest in the molding die (mold). The term "maximum thickness in a molding die" refers to, for example, the largest distance between a pair of molds that form two main surfaces.

[0080] The above-described polymerizable composition can prevent the formation of a stria even when a molding die having a maximum thickness of 5 mm or more, in which the formation of a stria more readily occur, is used.

[0081] Prior to injection into a molding die, the polymerizable composition may be filtrated. The filtration method is not particularly limited. For example, the polymerizable composition may be filtrated using a filter having a pore size of 1 to 30 µm.

<Polymerization step>



[0082] In the polymerization step, for example, the polymerizable composition is polymerized by heating.

[0083] Polymerization conditions can be appropriately set depending on the polymerizable composition and the shape of an optical component to be formed.

[0084] The polymerization initiation temperature is usually 0 to 50°C, and preferably 5 to 30°C. It is preferred that the temperature is raised from the polymerization initiation temperature, and then heating is preferably performed to perform curing formation. For example, the maximum temperature after the temperature being raised is 110 to 130°C.

[0085] Polymerization time, which is time from initiation of polymerization until completion of the polymerization, is, for example, 1 to 96 hours, preferably 2 to 50 hours, more preferably 2 to 26 hours, still more preferably 2 to 14 hours, even more preferably 2 to 8 hours, and further more preferably 2 to 5 hours.

[0086] After completion of the polymerization, the optical component may be released from a die and may be annealed. The temperature of the annealing treatment is preferably 100 to 150°C.

[0087] By the above-described method, an optical component resin is obtained.

[0089] The spectacle lens preferably includes, from the standpoint of reducing the formation of a stria and a cloud, a lens substrate formed of the above-described optical component resin (hereinafter, also referred to as "spectacle lens substrate").

[0090] The surface shape of the spectacle lens substrate is not particularly limited, and may be any of a flat surface, a convex surface, a concave surface, or the like.

[0091] The spectacle lens substrate may be any of a single focus lens, a multifocal lens, a progressive addition lens, or the like. For example, in an exemplary progressive addition lens, usually, a near portion area (near portion) and a corridor area (intermediate area) are included in a lower area, and a distance portion area (distance portion) is included in an upper area.

[0092] The spectacle lens substrate may be a finish type spectacle lens substrate or a semi finish type spectacle lens substrate.

[0093] The thickness of the geometrical center and the diameter of the spectacle lens substrate are not particularly limited. However, the thickness of the geometrical center is usually about 0.8 to 30 mm, and the diameter is usually about 50 to 100 mm.

[0094] The refractive index (ne) of the spectacle lens substrate is, for example, 1.53 or more, 1.55 or more, 1.58 or more, and 1.60 or more, and, for example, 1.75 or less and 1.70 or less.

[0095] The spectacle lens preferably includes a spectacle lens substrate and a functional layer on a surface of the spectacle lens substrate.

[0096] Examples of the functional layer include at least one selected from the group consisting of a hard coat layer, a primer layer, an antireflection film, and a water repellent film.

[0097] The hard coat layer is disposed for improving scratch resistance, and preferably can be formed by applying a coating solution containing a fine particulate inorganic material such as an organic silicon compound, tin oxide, silicon oxide, zirconium oxide, or titanium oxide.

[0098] The primer layer is disposed for improving impact resistance, and contains, for example, polyurethane as a main component. Here, the content of polyurethane in the primer layer is preferably 50% by mass or more.

[0099] Examples of the antireflection film include a layered film of inorganic substances such as silicon oxide, titanium dioxide, zirconium oxide, and tantalum oxide.

[0102] The frame includes, for example, a pair of rims, a bridge disposed between the rims, and a pair of temples each disposed at one end of each of the rims.

[0103] The rims may be half rims.

The moisture vaporizer and the Karl Fischer moisture meter were operated without introducing any measurement sample at a temperature of 125°C for 20 minutes to stabilize the vaporizer while the value indicated by the Karl Fischer moisture meter was monitored.

[0107] Next, a tray on which no measurement sample was set was introduced into the moisture vaporizer, and the moisture content was measured for 20 minutes to obtain a blank value.

[0108] Subsequently, a tray on which a measurement sample was set was introduced into the moisture vaporizer, and the moisture content was measured for 20 minutes to obtain a moisture content measurement value of the measurement sample.

[0109] The moisture content of a measurement sample was calculated using the following formula.

[0110] Moisture content (ppm by mass) = [Moisture content measurement value of measurement material - blank value]/amount of measurement sample introduced]
