Title: MOLDED ARTICLES, METHOD OF MANUFACTURE, AND DEVICE COMPRISING THE MOLDED ARTICLE
Abstract:
A molded article includes a mold insert and a thermoplastic attachment. The mold insert includes a glass layer having a first surface and a second surface opposite the first surface, a first optically clear adhesive layer disposed on at least a portion of the first surface of the glass layer, and an optically clear polymer film having a first surface and a second surface, where the first surface of the polymer film is in contact with the adhesive layer on a side opposite the glass layer. The thermoplastic attachment extends along an edge of the mold insert, and includes an optically clear high modulus ductile thermoplastic polymer. The difference between the refractive index of the mold insert and the refractive index of the thermoplastic attachment is less than or equal to 0.07. Methods for the manufacture of the molded article, and electronic devices including the molded article are also described.
