Benefits of plastic glazing

Weight Reduction

Using a lower density material like polymers enables weight reduction. For instance, a plastic sidelite implies 1 to 1.5 kg saved per car. Considering roof systems, the car´s weight can be reduced from 4 to 9 kg in a high position in the vehicle in order to decrease the center of gravity of the vehicle. It is very well known that weight reduction has an immediate impact on the reduction of CO2 emissions and energy consumption.

Flexible Design

Polymers offer the possibility to design parts that are not producible in mineral glass, and allow to create complex design shape.

Safety

Important to know is that Automotive plastic glazing meets the requirements of glazing concerning safety. It is actually comparable with laminated glass, providing a high impact resistance and ensuring driving performance and stability.

Integrated Systems

Plastic glazing offers a unique opportunity of integration of functions by reducing the number of components, cancelling the gaps between the parts, offering easier one step assembly and integration of features for technical, esthetical and aerodynamic contribution.

Appearance and Resistance

freeglass uses latest technologies, so that even glossy and smooth aspects can be given to a plastic part.
Coating technologies are offering weathering resistance, chemical and mechanical resistance related to outdoor exposition of the glazing.
