Silver Layer Prevents Windshield Icing

A new silver-embedded windshield design from Volkswagen keeps the glass free of ice without filament wires. In order to keep their windows completely clear, the Volkswagen team replaced the wires with a thin, electrically conductive silver layer. The layer consumes only about 500 watts, and warms quickly to defrost ice and snow while also reflecting up to 60 percent of infrared light keeping the car’s interior cooler in summer.
