PVB interlayer for laminated glass is used in many ways where safety and security are required, such as windshield, side door windows and roof glass. PVB Interlayer is attracting attention as technology that can enhance the possibilities of glass. Our PVB interlayer for laminated glass, S-LEC™ film, is widely adopted all over the world and can bring benefits such as:
・High transparency – For clarity of the glazing.
・Safety – Shatterproof, absorbs impact and prevents accidents.
・Security – Resist impact from a hammer or glass cutters.
・UV Blocking – blocks out 99% of ultraviolet rays.
・Design –Gradient or Colour with different film thicknesses.
・Solar Control – Heat reduction in cars or buildings.
・Sound Acoustic – Quietness by blocking noise from the outside.
・Head-up display – Adaptability with HUD for clear image.
S-LEC™ PVB interlayer film for laminated glass provides a wide variety of solutions like safety, security, UV blocking, Sound, Solar, Design and the adaptability of Head-up Display(HUD).
The popularity of electric vehicles is growing due to how high-tech and savvy these vehicles are, in addition to how much they save energy and protect the planet.
These vehicles are also changing the way that window glass is designed. Unlike traditional vehicles, electric vehicles engineer their auto glass to look like one large piece, crafted to appear as one extended piece of glass that runs from the back to the roof all the way to the front of the windshield. This design allows more sunshine to enter the automobile. SEKISUI S-LEC specializes in a wide range of solutions for EV glazing that provide the driver’s and passengers’ comfort by solar control or sound acoustic, and they also help to increase the driving range by energy saving. SEKISUI S-LEC contribute the sustainable driving experience.
A panoramic fixed glass roof with sunshade is an environmentally friendly form of automotive glass that uses fewer parts and gives the driver and passengers more headroom than a conventional roof.
The panoramic roof allows you to enjoy the weather while driving by illuminating the interior of the car. Panoramic glass needs to have low haze, thermal insulation for comfort and, as the size of the glass increases, acoustic performance to reduce external noise. In addition to sound reduction and solar control, SEKISUI S-LEC solutions offer a wide range of colour and gradient options to achieve a variety of aesthetics and improved performance for panoramic roofs.
Drivers appreciate colour film for car windows when it matches with their preferences. SEKISUI S-LEC offers advanced PVB interlayer colours such as neutral grey or a wide variety of dark colours for automotive glass. There are also several natural hue options to match different car concepts.
Explore the design range by requesting our physical colour glass collection or use our Virtual Reality (VR) tool to mix and match the features of coloured glass and to see how it will look on the windshield, side windows and glass roof.
S-LEC™ Solar Control Film is an automotive film that blocks out both infrared and ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun to keep the interior of the car cool, providing plenty of clarity and visibility. This PVB interlayer film is used not only in windshields, but also in all automotive laminated glass, including side door glass and panoramic sunroofs.
S-LEC™ Solar Control Film is available in three different types, L, AN01 and AN02. It‘s useful from small economy vehicles to luxury cars. In addition to reducing heat, it can save energy on electric vehicles. Unlike to metal reflective films, S-LEC™ Solar Control Film does not interfere with electromagnetic communications, such as those of mobile phones.
The acoustic PVB interlayer for laminated glass, S-LEC™ Sound Acoustic Film, can be used to block outside noise from the outside world such as traffic, wind, and other disturbing sounds to tune out distractions for the driver and passengers to create a peaceful, quiet driving experience. S-LEC™ Sound Acoustic Film can also help you get the most out of the music that you play in the vehicle.
You can combine acoustic quality with other functions or designs, such as solar protection or privacy colours, by incorporating soundproof film and other technologies into laminated glass.
Driving safety is one of the most important factors for car manufacturers and drivers. An automotive head-up display (HUD) allows you to keep your eyes on the road and contributes to safer driving. Many vehicles today use HUDs because consumers prefer the wide projection and good visibility for navigation or safety warnings.
Standard windshields cause the projector images to appear as double images due to light refraction, reducing visibility. S-LEC™ Wedge Shaped Film enables real time images to be projected clearly by controlling light refraction and is optimized for all types of HUDs, such as dual-pane HUD or Augmented Reality (AR) HUD.
Prolonged exposure to UV-A can damage human skin, causing inflammation and premature ageing. It can also degrade interior components such as car seats and dashboards. Automotive laminated glass with S-LEC™ Premium blocking film protects human skin and car interiors with its high UV cut performance.
