First step: Plastic injection moulding.
The transparent layer is injected into the first cavity of the mould. The second cavity is used to over-mould the transparent part with black material that will provide the decorative aspect (black serigraphy on glass) on the rim of the parts.
Second step: An anti-scratch coating is applied.
A coating is applied to the plastic glazing surface to improve its scratch resistance to meet the level required by automotive applications. This step can be carried out by Wet chemical or Plasma CVD coating.
Third step: Quality control.
Plastic glazing is checked to ensure that it fulfils all the quality standards of the automotive industry.
Fourth step: Assembly on the car body.
The plastic glazing is sent on the assembly line and can be mounted in a few seconds. For example, the parts can be fixed by clipping without using glue or chemical products.
