Environmental concerns such as fuel efficiency and CO2 emissions reduction are among the most important issues automotive OEMs face in the coming years. Advanced automotive solar control glass made with XIR® automotive solar control technology is a drop-in solution which lowers interior temperatures quickly, cooling the passenger cabin to minimize strain on the air conditioner and improving fuel efficiency.

XIR automotive film is a transparent coated film that is encapsulated between layers of Saflex® PVB (polyvinyl butyral) in laminated automotive glass to form a protective barrier against the harmful effects of the sun. The spectrally-selective metallic coating reflects heat-causing infrared (IR) rays without impairing visible light transmission. XIR laminated glass reduces solar heat gain an average of 35% more effectively than tinted glass.
