Covestro (Shanghai) Investment Co., Ltd.
In recent years, consumers have become increasingly concerned about the driving experience and the design of car interiors. As a key part of auto interior, adhesives have a significant impact on the environmental protection and quality of automotive interior. Covestro introduces an innovative waterborne polyurethane automotive interior adhesive solution that brings significant performance improvements based on its technical strength. Compared with market solutions, the new upgraded solution takes into account environmental advantages such as low VOC and low odor, and also improves heat and climate resistances to cope with the aging challenges of the interior in extreme high temperature weather, ensure the long-term stability of the adhesive bonding performance of the interior, and easily control various interior lamination or bonding application scenarios.
1) Excellent resistance to high temperature and humidity and extreme weather challenges – easily handle the harsh test conditions in the industry, such as hydrolysis resistance: TL 496 (90±2 temperature 98±2% humidity 216 hours), thermal stripping GMW 14892 (thermal stripping test completed in 40 ± 10 s), ensuring product performance of throughout the life cycle
2) Wider substrate applicability, giving greater design flexibility: Excellent and stable bonding strength for various substrates, including leather, specially treated PVC leather, and microfiber leather
Direct sunlight areas, such as instrument panels, door panels, etc
The future mobility will be defined as the third space of mobility, and the driver will have higher expectations for the interior space: safer, more comfortable, and more durable − Safer: concerns about the health of the cockpit (odors, VOC), requirements for bonding properties, especially in the airbag area − More comfort: more interior lamination designs and the use of different soft wrapping materials − More durability: fewer recall incident due to interior wrapping material fall off.
MIND Electronics Appliance Co., Ltd.
Technical description: The Tibetan-style headlamp can cover and expose the far and near light lens through the flip-type activity of the decorative frame, and then cooperate with the effect of the circle running water lamp to make the welcoming function of the whole car more ceremonial.
1) The innovative turning motion technical scheme of the headlight highlights the mecha style and reflects the dynamic beauty of the headlight;
2) The headlight lens can be hidden and displayed to increase the sense of science and technology of the lamp;
3) changing the monotonous opening of the traditional headlights increases the fun and playability of the headlights.
Application scenario: The turnover mechanism is applied to the front lamp of the car and placed in the front end of the near-far lens in the lamp. When the vehicle is still, the overall exposure of the overturning mechanism just blocks the far and near optical lens; When the vehicle is unlocked, the overturning mechanism moves downward and hides to expose the far and near optical lens; When the vehicle is unlocked, the overturning mechanism moves upward and exposes to block the far and near optical lens. During the whole process, we can see the up-and-down movement of the decoration, corresponding to the exposure and shelter of the lens group, making the welcoming and farewell functions of the vehicle more high-end and domineering.
Future prospects: The turnover mechanism is applied to the headlights, which not only ensures the basic functions of the headlights, but also adds mechanical activity elements to the headlights, making the headlights more scientific and technological. The application of the overturning mechanism in the headlights also indicates the beginning of the application of the mechanical mechanism in the lamps, which lays a foundation for the diversified modeling design and the playability design of the lamps in the future.
Kuilong Styling Rear lamp. First automotive standard industrial solution of miniLED direct display, combines Mini LED with traditional rear lamps to realize high-definition customized smart screen display and attach creativity for redefinition of interactive signalization.
1) Mini LED is firstly applied, with ultralow pixel distance Pitch of 0.68mm, the range of chip dimension: 50~200μm, high resolution of 1350*120, RGB full-color display;
2) With the intelligence of complete vehicle, rich intelligent driving assistance and human-vehicle / vehicle interaction functions can be realized by visual effect of image, such as obstacle reminder, real-time display of road conditions, entertainment mode and so on;
3) MIND inhouse platformized HD graphic control system and creative styling design, which can be customized for customers;
4) Innovative laser engraving and painting technology are adopted to improve the overall delicate perception level of rear lamp, engraving width is 0.3mm, partially as 0.1mm, higher than the industry level of 0.5mm.
Application scenarios: Full-color display of HD pixels, with abundant intelligent driving assistance, personalized theme entertainment scenarios. Support the application of vehicle interactive display, intuitively remind other traffic participants to pay attention to driving safety. In addition to basic signaling light function and welcome mode, acceleration and deceleration, braking, obstacle warning, real-time driving mode of road conditions and entertainment mode are also included.
More and more novel technical solutions are applied in the automotive lighting industry, and the application of mini LED technology has greatly changed the signal interaction mode, which can interact with the external environment more effectively and transmit all kinds of traffic signals. When the vehicle is driving, especially automatic driving, the application of this technology can effectively avoid traffic accidents caused by unclear traffic signal interaction, and bring more personalized services for users at the same time.
