Exatec / Ulvac: Cooperation for Coating Solutions

Exatec, Wixom, MI/USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of Sabic Innovative Plastics, and Ulvac, Methuen, MA/USA, a leader in mass-production vacuum technologies, today announced their collaboration to accelerate cost-effective, high-volume production of weatherable, scratch-resistant, plasma-coated Lexan polycarbonate (PC) resin for vehicle windows. Under the agreement, Ulvac will manufacture turnkey mass production systems that leverage its’ expertise in high-volume vacuum equipment and Exatec’s proprietary plasma coating technology.

The combined Ulvac and Exatec technologies will help automakers and tiers replace heavier glass windows with Lexan resin glazing to meet upcoming regulations for lower CO2 emissions and also provides greater design freedom and cost reduction through parts consolidation. It also offers other industries – particularly consumer electronics – durable and abrasion-resistant coating solutions for a broad range of products. Automakers interested in expanding production of PC windows using Exatec technology will soon be able to order machinery from Ulvac.
