Texas, USA – March 30, 2017
AGP eGlass management team is proud to showcase its new eGlass state-of-the-art facility technical capabilities, as well as its Value Proposition including 6 core technologies developed in the past few years which are applied to special glazing solutions. Some of these solutions are already in the market as part of emblematic products like the Model X Big Sky windshield, while others are ready for launch in new exciting projects to come soon. The objective is to position AGP eGlass as an enabler for OEM´s engineers and designer’s product development vision and strategies.
With a solid international R&D team immersed in developing the Future of Mobility, AGP eGlass offers the following technology solutions:
Ultralite Plus™, a hybrid solution with aluminosilicate glass, delivers important weight reduction results which improves the car performance and contributes to reducing CO2 emissions.
Camera View Plus™ advanced optics allows for level 5 autonomous driving capabilities, toping industry standards.
Solar Plus™ enhances solar performance without compromising car connectivity by utilizing non–metallic coatings.
360 Plus™ technology is made possible by advanced bending capabilities, and gives to the driver and passengers a «feeling of openness» with a panoramic view from the left to the right and to the sky.
Impact Plus™ strengthens the glazing by using hybrid compositions, which significantly outperform standard glass laminates (approx. 3x times depending on composition). Impact Plus has superior stone impact resistance that does not compromise stiffness.
Vario Plus™ tops it all off, with a unique and revolutionary technology that allows you to adjust at will the transparency of a glass, switching as required from a completely opaque glass to a highly transparent one, using gesture or voice command.
“We are very excited with the numerous projects being launched by leading OEMs around the globe focused on creating the mobility of the future. We all will benefit from cleaner and safer transportation options and AGP is proud to be a part of this evolution”, said Arturo Mannheim, CEO of the AGP Group.
