Significant weight reduction
Reduces weight of windshields, side and backlites by almost 35% when compared to the use of standard glass thicknesses
(ref: 1.2 m2 WSC, 2.7mm glass thickness vs 3.7mm glass thickness - PVB not included).
A lighter car means less energy consumption. Mass is the first enemy of energy conservation.
By using thinner glass and reducing weight, CO2 emissions are reduced, less fuel is used, improving environmental performance.
By reducing weight, EV autonomy is increased, less energy used and performance improved.
No impact on glass robustness
Even by reducing the thickness of the glass, resistance to stone impacts is kept, and the mechanical strength is as good as standard thickness.
Thinner glass offers the same thermal comfort as standard construction windshields.
