System solutions in the automobile window sector
Our customers are tending more and more towards window systems. The basic requirements include good visibility, function, design, weight, logistics and cost. We provide system solutions for the automobile window sector that exactly meet these requirements, from the earliest phase of concept development. We also incorporate other functions to develop complex systems that can be supplied as modules for direct fitting – so a simple rear window becomes a complete liftgate unit with direct interfaces to the vehicle.
Good visibility at all times
In comparison to normal glass, the surface behaviour of glass with self-cleaning properties is changed in such a way that dirt finds it difficult to stick to the surface. As much as possible is washed away by the flow of water when it's raining. This prohibits contamination and simplifies cleaning.
Glass with self-cleaning properties is frequently described by referring to the so-called lotus effect. The coating process makes use of nanotechnology.
- Less tendency to get dirty
- Provides a better view on to the external mirror
- Better view out in adverse weather conditions
- Increased driving safety

Integration of function
Plastic panel styling allows window guide rails and fixing elements to be incorporated at low cost and permits a freedom of design which metal panels can not offer. Design and functionality, perfect visual appearance and cost-effective integration open up new technical possibilities.
Different materials and material combinations can be provided, depending on the requirement
