Toyota Minivans Adopt AGC Automotive Glass
AGC Asahi Glass recently announced that its UV Verre Premium Privashield™ has been adopted by Toyota Motor Corp.
AGC Asahi Glass recently announced that its UV Verre Premium Privashield™ has been adopted by Toyota Motor Corp. for the Estima and Estima Hybrid, reportedly contributing to the launch of the first minivans with approximately 99% all-around UV cut (excluding wing windows). The automaker adopted AGC’s product for the AERAS Premium-G and AERAS SMART models, the top two grades of its new Estima and Estima Hybrid.
UV Verre Premium Privashield is automotive glass for rear doors and windows that cuts approximately 99% of ultraviolet (UV) rays and also has improved performance over prior products in cutting infrared (IR) rays. By using this glass, along with front door glass UV Verre Premium Cool on™ and windshield glass LAMISAFE™ or Cool Verre™, consumers can enjoy an approximately 99% UV cut with all windows, protecting the skin not only of the driver and front seat passenger, but also of the rear seat passengers. AGC started sales of UV Verre Premium Privashield in November 2015, and this is the seventh vehicle model to have adopted the glass.
