Saint-Gobain Sekurit has developed a classification system that uses pictograms to help consumers easily recognise automotive glass products and their distinctive qualities. These pictograms, devised by Saint-Gobain Sekurit and validated by a panel of 300 motorists have become the industry standard used by all glassmakers.
Hydrophobic glass eases the formation and evacuation of droplets, and repels elements like mud or insects. It improves visual comfort and safety, reduces the use of windscreen wipers and facilitates window cleaning.
Heatable glass quickly dissipates mist and frost without resorting to the car's ventilation system. These types of glazing are completely transparent, although they consist of filaments or a metallic interlayer between two sheets of glass.
