Multifunctional windshield

  • 15-Mar-2010 05:28 EDT

Through five-layer extrusion technology, Sekisui S-lec combines sound insulation, solar control, and head-up display (HUD) functions into one multifunctional product known as SSF-W. For sound insulation, SSF-W applies SAF, an acoustic multilayer film designed to attenuate undesired noises within the human audible frequency range. SSF-W also offers the company's solar control film (SCF), which uses dispersion technology to distribute particles throughout a resin-based interlayer film that absorbs solar rays and reradiates them outside the vehicle, limiting radiant heat energy from entering the cabin to reduce reliance on air-conditioning while allowing electromagnetic signals to pass without attenuation. Sekisui S-lec's HUD presents vehicle data information, including speedometer, tachometer, and navigational systems, onto the front windshield to improve human interactive performance and safety by allowing the driver to keep eyes on the road.
