HOTLINEGLASS USA engineers and manufactures electrically heated interlayers for use in any application where de-frost or de-ice capabilities are required in a windshield or any transparent laminate.
Our proprietary technology consists of embedded tungsten wire resistors in various types of interlayers. These interlayers include PVB (Poly-Vinyl Butyral), ATPU (Aliphatic Thermoplastic Poly-Urethanes) and other substrates. The wires can be straight, curved or with a sinus-wave structure (wiggle-wires) and conform to a variety of shapes.
When laminated in between glass and connected to an electric power source, the wires produce heat that warms the glass surface. Our application process, the small size of our wires, the small frequency of our wave and the tight spacing of adjacent wires all contribute to a final product with excellent optics.
Since we independently engineer each circuit for a given application we can provide various degrees of heat output for a particular size and shape. From gentle de-fogging of refrigerated displays to severe de-ice applications, HOTLINEGLASS-USA can make the product to meet your specifications.
