Sekisui Chemical Co. announced on Oct 02, 2008 the development of a new type of resin film for auto glass that allows the speedometer and other instrument panels to be projected onto the windshield in front of the driver.

Car windshields are made from two sheets of glass sandwiching a sheet of resin material that blocks sound and prevents the glass from shattering and scattering in an accident.

Because of this double-pane structure, images projected onto the windshield normally appear as double, making them difficult to look at. Sekisui Chemical solved the problem by developing a resin film with varying thickness that inhibits diffuse reflection of the projected light.

According to the company, one Japanese automaker has already decided to use the resin for a car model it plans to release in or after 2009, and a European carmaker has decided to use the resin for two models.

Sekisui Chemical hopes to see its material being used in 1 million cars by 2015.
