Teijin Offers World’s First Polycarbonate-Resin Pillar-less Automotive Front Window

June 26 2017

Teijin Limited has developed the world’s first polycarbonate (PC)-resin pillar-less automotive front window for use in the Tommykaira ZZ, a sporty electric vehicle (EV) produced by GLM Co., Ltd., an EV manufacturer launched by Kyoto University.

PC resins are prohibited from use in the front windows of automobiles due to automotive safety standards. Due to its high resistance to abrasion and weather, Teijin’s PC-resin window meets new Japanese standards that will become effective in July, paving the way for its use in the Tommykaira ZZ.

GLM expects to acquire street-ready certification for the Tommykaira ZZ fitted with Teijin’s PC-resin window, and then will offer the window as an option by autumn 2017.

Teijin also will market its PC-resin window for automakers in the U.S. and the EU, where demands for properties equivalent to new standards for safety and security are increasing.
