AGC recently released a new product in its UV Verre PremiumTM automotive glass series - UV Verre Premium PrivashieldTM, for rear doors and rear windows that cuts 99% of ultraviolet (UV) rays. This product series is the world’s first automotive glass series that can provide effective sun protection to this level.
AGC launched sales of its UV Verre Premium™ series with an approximately 99% UV reduction performance in 2010, followed by UV Verre Premium Cool onTM in 2012, a product equipped also with additional function against infrared (IR) rays, reducing the burning sensation of the skin caused by IR rays. With rising consciousness towards health and beauty, these products are now used in about 50 car models of major automobile manufacturers in the Japanese market.
By using UV Verre Premium PrivashieldTM for the sides with windshield glass LAMISAFE™, consumers can enjoy all-around protections against both UV and IR.
