AGP works with the leading PVB suppliers in the market to offer the most advanced acoustical performance available. Our goal to innovate drives us to constantly evaluate new process and technology designed to attenuate high and low frequency noise conditions often seen during a vehicles operation.

AVO

AVO

With our new production line, AGP provides industry leading in-house value added operations, such as automated extrusion encapsulation and bracket mounting. We are also able to incorporate electrical connectors, camera brackets and seals . Our strong vendor base and core technology allows us to suggest alternative design and material concepts that can be easily integrated into the end assembly. We also work with our customers to identify the best method for orienting the glass to the car to avoid adding stress to the glass.

HEATING

HEATING

Through our strong vendor base and process capabilities, AGP is able to incorporate heating technology into our glass products by utilizing wire technology or ITO deposition. We work with our customer’s engineering teams to determine which technology works best for their design. We are able to customize the heating performance based on the available power. We also offer various design options for heating the camera area why mitigating the glass distortion effect.

CAMERA

CAMERA

AGP has experience in meeting the requirements of advanced camera systems for some of the most revolutionary vehicles in the world. This includes mono and triple camera technology that require the most advanced optics and features to operate effectively. Our advanced optical measuring equipment and robotic assembly ensure that the camera bracketry is properly attached to the glass. We are also able to use silver printing technology and connector soldering to complete the bracketry for integration with the camera.

ANTENNA

VARIO PLUS

WHAT IS AGP VARIOPLUS

WHAT IS AGP VARIOPLUS

AGP’s VARIO Plus is a revolutionary technology which allows vehicle glass to be adjusted from a transparent state to a completely opaque state with the touch of a button.

AGP VARIO Plus is a laminated safety or Bullet Resistant Glass system that utilizes nano technology in the interlayer structure of the glass. These interlayers have tiny particles (mostly crystals and polymers), infused into to the substrate of the PVB, which become activated when an electric current is applied. Therefore, by turning on and off the electrical current these nano-particles become reoriented and the glass can be adjusted between opaque and transparent states allowing for privacy on demand.

HOW IT WORKS - OFF

HOW IT WORKS - OFF

When the electric current is switched off, the particles are left in a random alignment resulting in the glass being in an opaque state. This opaque state allows for sunlight to be reflected and therefore blocks transmission of this energy into the interior of the vehicle.

HOW IT WORKS - ON

HOW IT WORKS - ON

When an electrical field is applied, these micron size elements are instantly aligned, making the glass transparent, allowing the light to enter the vehicle like most standard automotive glass. All this happens with the touch of a button and in a fraction of a second, providing total control and an immediate response.

VARIOPLUS POLAR

VARIOPLUS POLAR

Allows you to switch between different levels of OPACITY: from a clear window to a completely opaque one, including all the states in between! Much like if you had an adjustable blind in your window. A perfect solution when you wish for total privacy.

Provides you with the possibility of adjusting the light transmission while constantly retaining visibility, from clear to dark… and back again! It’s like having several tinted windows all-in-one!
