SABIC Innovative Plastics’ polycarbonate glazing technology offers greater design freedom, higher performance, and lighter weight than traditional glass. Hyundai Motor Co. collaborated with SABIC to create a backlight for its compact ix-onic SUV concept using Exatec E900 glazing featuring Lexan GLX polycarbonate resin. Exatec E900 glazing benefits from Lexan GLX resin’s clarity and reduction of mass and weight. Injection molding enables complex shapes and integration of functionality such as the high-mounted brake light on the ix-onic. Lexan GLX also enhances occupant safety and security by protecting against breakage. Available in a solar control infrared version, transparent Lexan GLX resin can prevent heat build-up through infrared absorption, keeping the interior climate comfortable for the passengers of the car while maintaining fuel economy.
