Considerations for Plastic Abrasion Resistant Coated Windows for the Automotive Industry 930744

With the advent of today's abrasion resistance (AR) coating and plastic technologies, an alternative to glass glazing is now feasible. Automotive use of earlier forms of these products have pushed the research and development efforts of material suppliers and processors to the present state. Where this technology has been, how it has progressed, and what considerations are required for its utilization today will be discussed.
The object of this paper is to define the design and processing characteristics required for the successful application of AR coated plastic, as a glazing material.
