Automotive Applications

De-icing / De-fogging

NanoWeb® can act as a resistive heater to generate heat on windows or other clear surfaces in all kinds of weather conditions. NanoWeb’s technology can act as a resistive heater to generate heat on-demand, quickly defogging an automobile windshield. It can also be embedded into glass or plastic and can be tailored to our customers’ specific requirements.

Many vehicles today either attempt to blow air, or have heat element lines that are visible on a glass surface for defrosting a window, especially on the rear window. What makes NanoWeb® is a completely clear and unobstructive heating solution that does not interfere with vision. Each wire is permanently fixed within a thin film and does not have any overlapping wires, making it flexible and durable enough to be bent, folded, or thermoformed without compromising its conductive integrity or transparency.

Benefits of NanoWeb® as an Anti-Ice application:

  • Fast and efficient melting/removal of ice
  • Prevents ice build-up after removal
  • On-demand fast response
  • Can be integrated into products
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Can be used on almost all glass or plastic surfaces
  • Transparent and can cover small and large surface areas
  • Can be applied to the front windshield in a car, as there are no visible wires
