SEKISUI S-LEC is part of the SEKISUI Corporate group. As a SEKISUI company, we are committed to protecting the earth and its resources amid climate change, loss of biodiversity, and the increasing pollution of water reserves.
SEKISUI has set numerous initiatives, goals, and programs to balance natural and social capital by focusing on sustainable products, reducing environmental impact, and conserving the environment. The earth is home to all of us, so we are committed to helping stop these worrying developments.
Worldwide SEKISUI S-LEC is focusing on increasing the use of green energy. Both the PVB interlayer film and PVB resin plants in the Netherlands, China, Thailand and the US already use 100% green energy.
We offer various PVB interlayer solutions that can positively influence the environment.
S-LEC™ Solar Control Film can improve HVAC efficiency by blocking infrared rays from the sun and reducing the need to use air conditioning. S-LEC™ Sound Acoustic Film, when combined with thinner laminated glass, can reduce glass weight while reinforcing sound insulation performance, improving fuel efficiency and reducing electricity consumption in electric vehicles.
As part of our sustainability policies, please get in touch with us for more information about the emission numbers of our solutions.
Within S-LEC™ we offer various PVB interlayer performances like sound acoustic and solar control.
For electric vehicles (EVs), which are becoming more widespread globally, it is important to reduce energy consumption in more ways than via driving only.
IR glass windshields and windows conserve energy. S-LEC™ Solar Control Film can reduce the energy used by the climate control function when cooling the car. Through testing with electric vehicles, SEKISUI S-LEC showed a confirmed savings of up to 20% on air conditioning, which also contributes to extending the driving range for EVs.
S-LEC™ Sound Acoustic Film improves the sound-insulating performance of laminated glass, suppressing ambient noise to enhance comfort in automotive and architectural applications, such as traffic and wind noise to provide a serene environment in a loud and clustered world. S-LEC™ Sound Acoustic Film can significantly reduce noise pollution for vehicles and buildings.
S-LEC™ PVB Interlayer Film for laminated glass can be customized with various features. While maintaining shatterproof functionality that meets conventional safety standards, S-LEC™ Film improves user comfort with heat reduction, sound insulation, and ultraviolet ray blocking. The wide range of available colours allows for no compromise in design, providing the user with a one-rank higher experience.
Automotive laminated glass with S-LEC™ PVB interlayer film will also significantly contribute to electrification in the automotive industry.
