Bayer MaterialScience: Lightweight PC windows


The motto of the Bayer booth was “Sharing dreams, sharing values”. Exhibits included almost every sector humans can dream of. One exhibit was the concept car Haval E from Chinese car manufacturer Great Wall Motors. All seven window components including the front windshield are made of Makrolon polycarbonate (PC). It is equipped with a large PC panorama roof to decrease the weight. This concept car is the first of its kind in China to utilise the extensive application of PC glazing to produce a lightweight vehicle. Innovative automotive glazing technology enables the use of lightweight materials in cars that reduce fuel consumption and thus increase energy efficiency.
