THERMOFORMING

.

PROCESS

A polycarbonate windscreen is based on a suitably dimensioned and profiled flat sheet. The thermoforming process involves giving the flat sheet a curved surface.

This takes place by means of a thermal process which gives the polycarbonate a curved form.

In order to ensure the highest visual quality, each particular plastic after bending is tested optically, it is that it forms part of a monolithic product or a layered product.

TECHNOLOGIES

INFRARED FILTER

Viraver has the means to research, based on functionality and needs, shielding glass against infrared radiation, to reduce the effect of sun radiation up to 55%. In order to achieve this, Viraver uses shielding solutions through the use of special interlayers or selective films incorporated within the plastic interlayer.

HEATING CIRCUITS

Flat and curved glass with heating elements can be produced with demisting and de-icing functions which guarantee maximum visibility in all temperature and humidity conditions.

The heating effect is obtained by using micro-wire technology.

ANTI-SCRATCH COATING

The fundamental feature of plastics is their ductility and lightness. Unfortunately, they tend to deteriorate in the course of day to day use.

Signs of this deterioration include scratches, opacity and yellowing.

To increase the durability of polycarbonate products, Viraver has developed a special anti-scratch coating which hardens the surface and makes it much more resistant than the original product.  The end product acquires the required hardness imposed by international norms (ECE R43 e DOT).
