Nanofilm's Rao to Speak on Nanotechnology for Automotive Glazing
(Nanowerk News) 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.
