Automotive & Transportation:

Trosifol® interlayers can help build lighter-weight, more fuel-efficient family car sunroofs or wider and more spectacular views of the ocean, through more durable yacht windows. They can help cruise ship installers to use glass construction elements that meet requirements of the marine industry, to withstand both human and wave impacts and harsh climate conditions, while ensuring passenger safety.


By using Trosifol® Solar encapsulation film, PV module manufacturers can now, for the first time, produce glass/glass modules for integration in façades and roofs and fall-protection glazing with outstanding safety properties.
