SafeTec by IAC incorporates applied technologies for automakers that protect occupants, including integrated door intrusion geometries as well as sanitation and antimicrobial measures. These technologies span strengthening the attachment surfaces holding materials together, as well as technologies that benefit the vehicle for modern driving scenarios, such as ridesharing.
Audio Glass is IAC's ultra-lightweight, transparent high-to-mid range speaker, sustainably designed with extensive use of recycled materials and additive on-demand technologies, delivering audio performance equivalent to current conventional sound systems. The breakthrough concept offers new design possibilities, including applications and designs that open space, reduce critical blind spots and improve safety without compromising audio quality. Decorative print-on-demand or laser-etched design surfaces combined with embedded ambient lighting deliver a unique interior experience and is ideal for brand diversity.
Composite Laser Scoring
Composite Laser scoring is a one-step process for weakening substrates and coverstocks on components that require Airbag deployments, specifically Instrument Panels. The process incorporates the use of a laser to perforate the substrate, spacer fabric/foam and coverstock of a completed component in one operation.
Antimicrobial & Antiviral Measures
IAC’s innovative surfaces can include antimicrobial and antiviral properties through additive materials within the resins, offering protection for the life of the product. With ridesharing on the rise, vehicles increasingly need microbe abatement. In addition to additives, IAC can integrate active technologies such as UV lighting or heated surface temperatures into the vehicle's interior to eradicate bacteria or viruses between passengers or when passengers exit the cabin.
