Durably transparent: PLEXIGLAS® and PLEXIMID® for headlamp lenses

As in many other areas, LEDs are now also a trend in automotive construction — in headlamps, for instance. One purpose of using LEDs here is to make headlamps stand out from the ordinary by using eye-catching design or integrating special additional features. These include variable functions that are possible only with LEDs, such as adaptive lights for variable headlamp range control depending on driving speed and the environmental conditions. 

Applications for PLEXIGLAS® and PLEXIMID® range from large main headlamp lenses, through edge-lit lenses and light guides for daytime running lights, to lenses for dynamic indicator lights.

And for all these Evonik offers a wide range of PLEXIGLAS® and PLEXIMID® molding compounds with various heat deflection temperatures and custom-tailored optical properties.
