Need details
Yanfeng Automotive Seeks Films/Coatings which could be combined with a transparent plastic (such as acrylic or polycarbonate) to create a glass like part which provides glass like features such as cold touch, chemical and scratch resistance.
Considering the rapidly increasing demand for smart surfaces in automotive interior, there is a need to have a plastic which could be used for displays as an alternative to glass. We are looking for a Plastic/Film/Coating combination which could provide an appearance and feeling close to glass.
Key Success Criteria
  • Cool to the touch with a thermal conductivity of at least 0.6 W/(m∙K).
  • Transparent with a minimum of 90% transmission of visible wavelengths.
  • Chemical resistance to bug spray and sunscreen, air freshener, etc.
  • Excellent scratch resistance.
  • Consistent performance in an automotive interior temperature range of between -40⁰C to 60⁰C.
  • Does not volatize VOCs with an odor or health concern.
  • Being resistant to finger prints is a plus.
