The “Green Revolution” of Transportation Means
How to lower the temperature inside cars is an ongoing problem for car owners. The only solution available seems to be turning on the air conditioner. The sunscreen energy-saving vehicular glass produced by Fuyao will settle the difficult problem of high temperature and bring an environmentally conscious “Green Revolution” to your car.
Fuyao’s sunscreen energy-saving vehicular glass will successfully solve the problem of high temperatures in cars by adopting Low-e coating technology and combining the high light transmission of glass with the permeability of solar thermal radiation. Experimental results showed that 99% of ultraviolet light and more than 65% of solar energy could be blocked by using this product. When exposed to scorching sun for two hours, the vehicle equipped with this glass product features, on average an in-car temperature of 5℃ lower than cars equipped with ordinary glass.This means that the glass will limit the use of air conditioners. One can justifiably say that the glass is a revolutionary as a green, environmentally friendly, and energy-efficient product.
The research and development (R&D) team at Fuyao has worked relentlessly on the product for years. In its current form, theLow-e coating of Fuyao Coated Glass contains a maximum of three silver layers. The most advanced magnetron sputtering technology in the world delivers a permanent layer of transparent metal film on the inner surface of the glass, which speaks for outstanding performance of vehicular glass in areas such as high transmittance, high heat insulation, and low light reflection.
Built upon a sunscreen function, Fuyao Coated Glass can also integrate practical driving functions into the glass by means of the coating layer. For instance, the metal film works as a heating medium to deliver defrosting and demisting functions for the front windshield. It also provides such functions as head-up display and GPRS signal reception.
Glass is an important part of any car and has always played an important role in safety protection. Nowadays, the industry has focused on style and auxiliary functions of vehicular glass as a new frontier trend in automotive design, apart from satisfying basic safety needs. As a leading enterprise for vehicular parts, Fuyao Group introduced the first-generation coated product in 2009 and has continued to delve into the functions of vehicular glass ever since. The top five R&D concentrations in Fuyao include safety, comfort, energy-efficiency, intelligence, and product integration. With sustained efforts, Fuyao is now able to deliver a piece of transparent glass with embedded soul. Fuyao’s ongoing efforts help it to win the trust of auto manufacturers and clients from around the world.
Behind constant product upgrades and function innovation is Fuyao’s dedication to its principal mission. Fuyao is committed to building a favorable innovation environment using three approaches, which are management, production, and culture.
With the integration of information technology and intelligent manufacturing, Fuyao connects personal client demand with production and builds a digital channel incorporating sales, operation, R&D, control, and production. In doing so, an intelligent plant featuring highly flexible manufacturing has been constructed. The project has already secured some preliminary outcomes: the comprehensive cost has been cut by 5% and efficiency has risen by 10%. Moreover, clients are able to follow the production stage of their products after they placed an order via mobile accounts. They also have access to information about the origins of raw materials and product ID on their accounts.
It is possible that, in the near future, cars may be made out of glass, and the color and transparency of the car body will change as the environment changes, creating a private or open space. At the same time, the self-driving system may mark your next destination on the glass. Such transparent glass tightly connects humans, cars, and the world.
