Transparent glass fiber reinforced
composites films ware fabricated by UV light induced chemical crosslinking of
composite materials consisting of glass fiber and UV curable resin in film
state. In order to apply film to flexible device, excellent flexural property
is required, then the delamination should not occurred between glass fiber and
UV curable resin when film is bent. To minimize delamination and improve the
interfacial adhesion at interface between glass fiber and UV curable resin, the
γ-aminopropyl triethoxy silane and γ-glycid oxypropyl trimethoxy silane were applied
for the surface treatment of glass fibers. Silanization of glass fiber surface
was checked by scanning electron microscopy and the degree of delamination of
composite film was confirmed through the bending test, ASTEM290-96a, used by
