DESCRIPTION OF EMBODIMENTS [0037] Reference will now be made in detail to the preferred embodiments of the invention, examples of which are illustrated in the accompanying drawings. Wherever possible, the same reference numbers are used in the drawings and the description to refer to the same or like parts. [0038] FIG. 1 is a schematic view of a decoration film according to one embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIG. 1 , the decoration film 100 includes a carrier layer 110 , a releasing layer 120 , a protection layer 130 , a decoration pattern layer 140 , an impact resisting layer 150 and an adhesion layer 160 . Herein, the carrier layer 110 is, for example, a layered article having flexible characteristic and capable of carrying the releasing layer 120 , the protection layer 130 , the decoration pattern layer 140 , the impact resisting layer 150 and the adhesion layer 160 . In other words, a method of manufacturing the decoration film 100 includes forming the releasing layer 120 , the protection layer 130 , the decoration pattern layer 140 , the impact resisting layer 150 and the adhesion layer 160 on the carrier layer 110 by a film forming method such as coating, printing or depositing. Therefore, the carrier layer 110 described in this embodiment can be viewed as a substrate or a carrier substrate alleged by people skilled in the art. [0039] With respect to this embodiment, the releasing layer 120 , the protection layer 130 , the decoration pattern layer 140 , the impact resisting layer 150 and the adhesion layer 160 are located on the same side of the carrier layer 110 and stacked outward from the carrier layer 110 in sequence. In other words, the impact resisting layer 150 is located between the decoration pattern layer 140 and the adhesion layer 160 . The protection layer 130 is located on the decoration pattern layer 140 at a side away from the adhesion layer 160 . The releasing layer 120 is disposed between the carrier layer 110 and the protection layer 130 . [0040] Additionally, a total film thickness of the impact resisting layer 150 and the adhesion layer 160 is 2 μm to 20 μm. Therefore, when the decoration film 100 and a molded body are bonded to constitute a decorated molded device, the disposition of the impact resisting layer 150 and the adhesion layer 160 is facilitated to ease an impact on the decoration pattern layer 140 in the process of manufacturing the molded body. In other words, the decoration film 100 in this embodiment has a higher endurance capacity to the impact during the process. However, the total film thickness of the impact resisting layer 150 and the adhesion layer 160 is not limited to the aforementioned conditions, the total film thickness of the impact resisting layer 150 and the adhesion layer 160 can selectively configured from 5 μm to 15 μm. Additionally, for providing a desirable impact resisting characteristic, the impact resisting layer 150 can be manufactured by selecting a specific material, but is not limited thereto. In order to disclose the implementation types of the invention adequately, each element of the decoration film 100 is described as follows; however, the scope of the invention is not limited to the following description. [0041] The carrier layer 110 is, for example, a polymer flexible thin film capable of providing the carrying function. A material of the carrier layer 110 can be polymers such as polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyethylene naphthalate (PEN), polyethylene glycol-co-cyclohexane-1,4 dimethanol terephthalate (PETG), thermalplastic polyurethane (TPU), polyurethane (PU), polypropylene (PP), polycarbonate (PC), amorphous polyethylene terephthalate (A-PET), polyvinyl chloride (PVC), triacetyl cellulose (TAC), polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), methyl methacrylate-styrene (MMA-st, MS) copolymer, cyclo olefin copolymer (COC), or a combination thereof. [0042] The releasing layer 120 is usually a thin film with low surface tension which can be made of the material selecting from at least one of wax, paraffin, and silicone, or an impermeable thin film with high smoothness and not permeable which can be made of an irradiation curable multi-functional acrylic ester, silicone acrylate, epoxy, vinyl ester, allyl vinyl compound, unsaturated polyester or a mixture thereof A material of the releasing layer 121 can be selected from a polycondensate, a copolymer, a blend, or a mixture consisting of epoxy, polyurethane, polyimide, polyamide, hexa methoxymethyl melamine-formaldehyde, urea-formaldehyde, phenol-formaldehyde, and a combination thereof. [0043] A material of the protection layer 130 includes radiation-cured multi-functional group acrylic ester, epoxide, vinyl ester resion, diallyo(o-)phthalate, vinyl ether or a combination thereof. The radiation-cured multi-functional group acrylic ester can be epoxy acrylate, polyurethane acrylate, polyester acrylate, silicone acrylate or glycidyl acrylate. [0044] The decoration pattern layer 140 can be a colourful ink layer, a black ink layer, a white ink layer or a combination thereof. In one embodiment, such ink layers can be formed by any suitable printing process such as gravure printing process, screen printing process, flexographic printing process, offset printing, reverse printing process, ink jet printing process, so as to form the desired decoration pattern layer 140 , and a material of the ink layers can be sublimation type transferring ink, heat-melted type transferring ink, UV-type transferring ink, and the like. [0045] In one embodiment, the decoration pattern layer 140 may include a metal layer or another material layer (not shown) in order to provide a special visual effect such as metallic lustre or a specific touch feel. In other words, in this embodiment, it is not particularly limited that a decoration pattern of the decoration film 100 is constructed by the ink layer or a combination of the ink layer and other material layers. The metal layer provided for decoration can be formed by using a metal material such as Al Cu Zn Sn Mo Ni Cr Ag Au Fe In Tl Ti Ta W Rh Pd Mg Pt any alloy thereof or a combination thereof. Further, a method of manufacturing the metal layer includes coating, laminating, plating, sputtering, vacuum evaporating or a combination thereof, but is not limited thereto. [0046] A disposition of the impact resisting layer 150 can provide a desirable impact resisting characteristic in the decoration molding process of manufacturing the decorated molded device. Thus, the impact resisting layer 150 should also have sufficient tolerance to a temperature of the decoration molding process. Therefore, a glass transition temperature (Tg) of the impact resisting layer 150 may be 90° C. to 140° C., or 110° C. to 120° C. Of course, the aforementioned value is only illustrated as an example. In other embodiments, it falls within the scope of the invention as long as the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the impact resisting layer 150 is not less than the temperature required in the decoration molding process. In addition, a material of the impact resisting layer 150 may be selected from acrylic polyol or polymethacrylate having the characteristic of high temperature resisting. This kind of material usually has a desirable degree of crosslinking so as to provide an enhanced characteristic of impact resisting in the decoration molding process. [0047] The material of the adhesion layer 160 can be selected from polyacrylate, polymethacrylate, polystyrene, polycarbonate, polyurethane, polyester, polyamide, epoxy resin, polyvinylchloride (PVC) resin, ethylene vinylacetate copolymer (EVA), thermoplastic elastomer, a copolymer, blend, or a composite thereof. Regarding to this embodiment, if the decoration film 100 is applied to the manufacture of the decorated molded device using a plastic material having higher melting point, a polyvinylchloride (PVC) resin may be used as the adhesion layer 160 to provide the desirable characteristic of thermal resisting. However, the invention is not limit thereto, in other embodiments, a suitable material may be selected to manufacture the adhesion layer 160 depending on the different requirements during the process. [0048] For example, FIG. 2 is a schematic view of a decorated molded device manufactured by a decoration molding process using the decoration film depicted in FIG. 1 according to one embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIG. 2 , in the decoration molding process of this embodiment, a molded body B 1 is, for example, manufactured by using a mold ejection process, and in the meantime, a part of the elements of the decoration film 100 is bonded to the molded body B 1 through the adhesion layer 160 . Here, a surface of the molded body B 1 may bond with the adhesion layer 160 , the impact resisting layer 150 , the decoration pattern layer 140 and the protection layer 130 . It is worth to note that, the decoration molding process is one of the IMD techniques. [0049] Generally, the IMD technique substantially includes the following steps: placing the decoration film 100 into a molded cave of a mold; injecting a melted plastic material into the molded cave so that the plastic material contacts with the adhesion layer 160 ; and ejecting the solidified plastic material from the molded cave to form the molded body B 1 . Here, the protection layer 130 , the decoration pattern layer 140 , the impact resisting layer 150 and the adhesion layer 160 are ejected from the molded cave along with the molded body B 1 so as to construct a decorated molded device 10 . Moreover, as shown in FIG. 2 , the carrier layer 110 may be separated from the protection layer 130 by a function of the releasing layer 120 . Herein, FIG. 2 exemplarily shows a type of the carrier layer 110 been partly peeled off; however, in the practical product, the carrier layer 100 is removed from the molded body B 1 completely. In other words, the decorated molded device 10 may not include the carrier layer 110 and the releasing layer 120 . [0050] When the decorated molded device 10 is manufactured by the IMD techniques, the injection of the melted plastic material causes the plastic material to impact on the decoration film 100 at a side where the adhesion layer 160 is located. Therefore, in the decoration film 100 of this embodiment, the impact resisting layer 150 is located between the decoration pattern layer 140 and the adhesion layer 160 to prevent from the damage on the decoration pattern layer 140 causing by an impact of an external force during the injecting process of the melted plastic material. In other words, a situation such as ink breakage or pattern damage is not easy to generate on the decoration pattern layer 140 . [0051] Generally, the plastic material used in the IMD techniques to manufacture the decorated molded device 10 includes nylon, polycarbonate (PC), polypropylene (PP), polymethylmethacrylate (PMMA), methyl methacrylate-styrene (MMA-st, MS) copolymer, methyl methacrylate-styrene (MS), acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS), polystyrene (PS), polyethylene terephthalate (PET), polyoxymethylene (POM) or a combination thereof. [0052] According to the characteristics of these materials, the manufacturing parameters of the IMD process may be different. Particularly, when the material of the molded body B 1 is nylon, the required temperature of the process is higher and the material of the adhesion layer 160 is preferably selected from PVC resin to provide a desirable bonding characteristic. Here, the impact resisting layer 150 is preferably selected from a material having higher glass transition temperature to endure the higher temperature of the process. [0053] Of cause, the invention is not limit thereto. For example, FIG. 3 is a schematic view of a decorated molded device manufactured by a decoration molding process using the decoration film depicted in FIG. 1 according to another embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIG. 3 , the manufacturing process of this embodiment is similar to the embodiment described in FIG. 2 , and hence no more descriptions are repeated here. A main difference between this embodiment and the embodiment of FIG. 2 is that, a plurality of glass fibers F are distributed in a molded body B 2 for manufacturing a decorated molded device 20 in this embodiment. The disposition of the glass fibers F is facilitated to enhance a mechanical strength of the decorated molded device 20 . [0054] Note that when the decorated molded device 20 is manufactured by the mold ejecting method, the glass fibers F is mixed in the melted plastic material. In the process of solidifying the melted plastic material to form a molded body B 2 , due to the fiber floating effect, a part of the glass fibers F is further inserted into the adhesion layer 160 . However, according to the disposition of the impact resisting layer 150 , all of the glass fibers F are not inserted into the decoration pattern layer 140 . As a result, a decorating effect provided by the decoration pattern layer 140 is not influenced and the fiber floating phenomenon is not easy to be felt. Therefore, the disposition of the impact resisting layer 150 may not only prevent from the damage on the decoration pattern layer 140 caused by the impact of the external force, but also reduce the negative influence of the appearance of the decorated molded device 20 caused by the fiber floating phenomenon. Further, in order to avoid seeing the fiber floating phenomenon, the decoration pattern layer 140 of this embodiment may have a foggy background, for example, adding titanium dioxide powder into the decoration pattern layer 140 to construct a background in gray tone so that the decorated molded device 20 has a desirable appearance. [0055] FIG. 4 is a schematic view of a decoration film according to another embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIG. 4 , a decoration film 200 is similar to the decoration film 100 , thus the same elements in both are denoted with the same reference numbers and not repeated. To be specific, a difference between the decoration film 200 and the decoration film 100 is that, a foggy layer 270 is further disposed between the carrier layer 110 and the releasing layer 120 of the decoration film 200 . As a result, the protection layer 230 (i.e., close to the releasing layer 120 ) has a foggy surface 230 A at a side away from the adhesion layer 160 . [0056] Regarding to this embodiment, the foggy layer 270 is used to form an uneven structure on the protection layer 230 thereby constructing the foggy surface 230 A. Thus, the foggy layer 270 may be a rough structure layer formed by a method such as imprinting or scribing on the carrier layer 110 and also may be an uneven coating layer constructed by a matrix layer mixed with a plurality of particles coated on the surface of the carrier layer 110 . [0057] FIG. 5 is a schematic view of a decorated molded device manufactured by a decoration molding process using the decoration film depicted in FIG. 4 according to one embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIG. 5 , the step of the process in this embodiment can refer to the relative descriptions about FIG. 3 and FIG. 2 and is not repeated. In this embodiment, a molded body B 3 may be constructed by the plastic material and the glass fibers F distributed in the plastic material. It can be known from the above embodiments that, although the disposition of the glass fibers F may be facilitated to enhance the mechanical strength of a decorated molded device 30 , the fiber floating phenomenon caused by the glass fibers F leads to an inferior influence to the appearance of the decorated molded device 30 . Therefore, in the decorated molded device 30 of this embodiment, the foggy surface 230 A of the protection layer 230 renders the fiber floating phenomenon caused by the glass fibers F unnoticeable and facilitates a desirable appearance to the decorated molded device 30 . [0058] It is worthy to note that, a combination of the protection layer 230 having the foggy surface 230 A and the molded body B 3 having the glass fibers F is described in this embodiment; however, it is only described as an example and is not intended to limit the scope of the invention. In other embodiment, such as the embodiment illustrated in FIG. 2 , the protection layer may also have a foggy surface depending on the design requirement. [0059] FIG. 6 is a schematic view of a decoration film according to another embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIG. 6 , a decoration film 300 is similar to the decoration film 100 , thus the same elements of both is depicted with the same device symbols. To be specific, a main difference between the decoration film 300 and the decoration film 100 is that, a decoration pattern layer 340 is located between the adhesion layer 160 and an impact resisting layer 350 . In other words, a disposition sequence of the decoration pattern layer 340 and the impact resisting layer 350 is different from the design of the decoration film 100 . Herein, the materials of the carrier layer 110 , the releasing layer 120 , the protection layer 130 , the impact resisting layer 350 , the decoration pattern layer 340 and the adhesion layer 160 can refer to the relative descriptions of the decoration film 100 . [0060] FIG. 7 is a schematic view of a decorated molded device manufactured by a decoration molding process using the decoration film depicted in FIG. 6 according to one embodiment of the invention. Referring to FIG. 7 , in this embodiment, a molded body B 4 of a decorated molded device 40 is, for example, manufactured by a plate using a punching process, and a material of the plate may be a metal. Therefore, a manufacturing method of the decorated molded device 40 includes, for example, bonding the decoration film 300 illustrated in FIG. 6 to the plate through the adhesion layer 160 of the decoration film 300 , and then bending the plate to form the molded body B 4 by the punching process. After the molded body B 4 is bent to a predetermined shape, the carrier layer 110 can be separated from the decorated molded device 40 by a releasing function of the releasing layer 120 . [0061] In the punching process, for example, a fixture impacts the plate and the decoration film 300 from a side where the carrier layer 110 is located. In other words, the decoration film 300 is impacted by an external force P of the fixture. Here, the impact resisting layer 350 of the decoration film 300 is located between the decoration pattern layer 340 and the carrier layer 110 to prevent from the damage on the decoration pattern layer 340 caused by the external force P so that the decorated molded device 40 has a desirable quality. [0062] In conclusive, in the embodiments of the invention, the impact resisting layer is disposed on the decoration pattern layer at a side predetermined to receive an impact so as to enhance the impact resisting characteristic of the decoration pattern layer. Additionally, when the plastic material is used to manufacture the decorated molded device and the glass fibers are added into the plastic material, the decorated molded device may have improved mechanical strength, and the disposition of the impact resisting layer may alleviate the influence of the appearance caused by the fiber floating phenomenon of the glass fibers. Further, the protection layers having the foggy surface disposed in the decoration film and the decorated molded device conduces to reduce the influence of the appearance of the decorated molded device caused by the fiber floating phenomenon of the glass fibers.
