With rapidly increasing replacement costs, automakers and drivers want a more durable and reliable windshield. Corning® Fusion5™ Glass demonstrates sharp impact performance four times better than traditional windshields with significantly lower breakage on the road.
*Asymmetric Fusion5 construction vs traditional windshields
Increasing adoption of battery-electric vehicles has made weight reduction a crucial target in auto manufacturing. Corning® Fusion5™ is 12% less dense than traditional glass, reducing the overall weight needed for increased range.
With more sensors and integrated features like ADAS, automakers and drivers need clearer optics.
Advancements in autonomous driving means more technology than ever is mounted to the windshield. Windshields made with Corning® Fusion5™ have outstanding optical quality and lower optical distortion.
The lighter weight of windshields made with Corning® Fusion5™ means EVs use less energy, and go further on each charge.
Windshields made with Fusion5™ are less likely to break, meaning vehicles spend more time on the road. Less repair waste creates a more efficient and sustainable fleet.
Corning® Fusion5™ Glass
Inner Ply Glass
The fusion process is uniquely different to the float process used by competitors. A drop-in process makes Fusion5™ easy for glazers to adapt and produce as there are no additional materials or infrastructure needed.
When incorporated into automotive glazing, Corning® Fusion5™ Glass forms the outermost “ply” – effectively reducing weight, increasing durability, and improving optical performance.
