01
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).
02
Energy saving
A lighter car means less energy consumption. Mass is the first enemy of energy conservation.
03
Less CO2 emissions
By using thinner glass and reducing weight, CO2 emissions are reduced, less fuel is used, improving environmental performance.
04
Better EV autonomy
By reducing weight, EV autonomy is increased, less energy used and performance improved.
05
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.
06
Thermal comfort
Thinner glass offers the same thermal comfort as standard construction windshields.

01
Lower CO2 emissions
Enables fuel savings and decreases CO2 emissions by reducing weight and using thinner glass (typically 0.1 g of CO2 per saved kilogram and kilometer driven).
02
Significant weight savings for laminated glass
For windshields, use of thinner outer and inner glass sheets leads to a weight reduction of about 4 kg per windshield vs. standard configuration
(Ref: 1.2 m2 WS, 2.7mm glass thickness vs 3.7mm glass thickness - PVB not included).
03
Significant weight savings for tempered glass
For side windows and backlites : thicknesses down to 2.85mm are available, resulting in weight reduction of 0.8 kg/m² vs standard glass thickness (3.15mm).
04
Thermal comfort
Different glass construction including specific PVB allow to guarantee the thermal comfort in terms of TE and TL.
05
No impact on glass durability?
For laminated glass, the thickness difference between the outer glass and the inner glass contributes to the resistance to stone impacts... The greater the gap, better the performance….
