Dr. Krish Rao, Vice President of Technology for Nanofilm
will speak at the Plastics in Automotive Glazing 2008 - North America conference
to be held on 12-13 November in Detroit, MI. His topic is Coatings For Plastic
Glazing: The Role of Nanotechnology.
Environmental issues, weight savings and emissions have overtaken cost reduction
in the minds of designers and engineers within North American OEM and system
supplier companies, according to the latest DuPont/SAE sector survey. Automotive
Glazing is one area where plastics can help achieve big weight savings, at the
same time opening up new possibilities in styling and part integration.
“Nanocoatings can help accelerate work to make the potential of plastic
glazing into broad-based reality,” says Dr. Rao. They help meet challenges
with durability and UV exposure, and open up a variety of new possibilities,
including energy control.”
The conference is organized by Plastics News Global Group publications Plastics
News and European Plastics News.
