PC glazing push in Japan
To push forward the use of PC glazing in the Japanese automotive industry, Bayer MaterialScience (BMS), Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Plastic Technology and Kyowa Industrial have set up a joint research programme.


The partners will use a 1,450 tonne electric two-component injection moulding machine with a rotating platen from Mitsubishi’s emR series and this will be installed at Mitsubishi’s new technical service centre at its headquarters in Nagoya City.

BMS will contribute its experience in automotive glazing and materials knowledge and will provide materials for mould proving while Kyowa Industrial will provide the moulds.

BMS has bundled its full range of expertise in automotive glazing with its PC Makrolon under the BayVision brand name.

The collaboration with the two Japanese partners forms BMS’s second large technology cell for developments in the PC glazing sector. It also has a 2,300 tonne two-component injection moulding machine from Engel installed at its own global Glazing Centre in Leverkusen, which went into operation in summer 2009. This machine can manufacture parts up to 1.2 sq m in size.
