These include liquid crystals and OLEDs for displays, effect pigments for coatings, specialty chemicals for the semiconductor industry, and functional materials for solar panels, just to name a few of them. The Automotive Platform has been established to combine the activities of Performance Materials for the automotive industry under one roof. Addressing the needs of the automotive industry in a coordinated approach providing a clear contact and go-to-point will enable breakthrough innovation from the beginning of the value chain.
Premiere at the IAA 2017
For the first time we presented a wealth of innovative solutions at the worldwide important exhibition for the automotive industry. We displayed:
- intelligent headlight systems with LC matrix and OLED tail lights,
- individually switchable windows thanks to liquid-crystal-window technology
- free-form displays for new design possibilities, smart satellite antennas for stable and high-performance network connections,
- effect pigments for aesthetic looking and functional surfaces.
A virtual concept car, displayed as a partial model, clearly showed the numerous possibilities for the automotive industry. Get an impression of our portfolio for the automotive industry at the IAA 2017 and recognize the possibilities our materials offer for the mobility of the future.
