Multi-layer PVB technology will expand the possibilities of high performance automotive glazing.
Nowadays, the environment is playing a leading role in the automotive design. Weight reduction by using thinner glass and smaller air conditioning units, in order to save weight and therefore fuel, with fewer CO2 emissions. All these developments will have an impact on the comfort for the driver and passengers. We want to keep the same, or better, comfort within the car.
In order to meet the automotive demands for enhanced comfort, Sekisui has developed a wide range of PVB interlayer films, which will meet these requirements for enhanced comfort.
S-Lec® Acoustic Film
Car noises travels through glass. Ever turned off the engine and sighed with relief after a long drive? This is the moment when many drivers realise how much noise penetrates into a car when driving.
S-Lec® Sound Acoustic film brings peace and calmness to the interior by dramatically reducing all noises coming through the glass, including unpleasant engine and wind noise. S-Lec® Sound Acoustic Film, with SEKISUI multi-layer extrusion technology, has succeeded in enhancing the car's comfort.
S-Lec® Solar Control Film
The S-Lec® Solar Control Film is developed in order to block out rays and fuel overuse; being able to dress in your favourite outfit, looking your best, regardless of the heat. Cars must be able to fulfil such passengers' wishes. This film has the ability to block infrared rays, in addition to ultraviolet rays. Infrared rays could irritate your skin and greatly increase the car temperature. S-Lec® Solar Control Film blocks these rays and minimises the negative factors for the skin and the increased temperature in the car.
Electromagnetic wave transmission. Balancing communication and coolness
Today, mobile communication is a necessity for business and pleasure. However, standard heat-reflecting glass with metal coating reflects waves, which makes it difficult for mobile phones to receive waves. This film allows major waves of all frequencies to transmit through glass.
'Eco-friendly' is 'People-friendly'
The higher the temperature, the more air conditioning we use. This puts burden on the engine, resulting in more fuel use. Not only does S-Lec Solar Control Film prevent the increase of the car temperature, it also helps in reducing the fuel consumption and carbon dioxide emission by reducing the overuse of air conditioners.
Protecting your car from noise and heat? Accelerating the level of comfort and eco-friendliness? S-LEC Sound and Solar Film is a multifunctional interlayer film that makes all dreams come true!
The S-LEC Sound and Solar Film is a combination of the multi-layer technology (acoustic film) and the nano-dispersion technology (solar control film) is a superior solution for achieving one product with two high-value functions, noise and heat reduction.
Sekisui S-Lec occupies a strong market position, with unique technology and high performance products. They work continuously to improve products and production processes. And they are driven by customers' wishes, as well as environmental issues. Furthermore, Sekisui S-Lec is certified in accordance with QS 9000, ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
