The recent trend towards larger glazing areas in vehicles combined with stringent fuel efficiency goals has renewed the interest in managing solar cabin heat-up through the use of spectrally selective coatings. Infrared-rejecting films can be incorporated in glazing either as laminates or as applied window films, and in addition to reducing a vehicle’s air conditioning load, can provide additional benefits such as protection from ultra-violet radiation, sound attenuation, and glare reduction. This paper presents an overview over the types and performance characteristics of web-based solar selective coatings, the application context specific to automotive uses such as regulatory, safety and reliability constraints, and latest industry trends.
