AZDEL : 05 January, 2007  (Company News)
Italy's Ranger Group announced in September that it has chosen GE's Lexan GLX resin to launch its new premium automotive glazing line with the tradename Organikglas. GE's Lexan GLX polycarbonate resin, which provides high impact strength, UV protection, and light weight that are especially valuable in large panoramic roofs, sunroofs, and backlights, will be injection-molded at Ranger's state-of-the-art production facility in Carate Brianza, Italy.

Italy's Ranger Group announced in September that it has chosen GE's Lexan GLX resin to launch its new premium automotive glazing line with the tradename Organikglass(1). GE's Lexan GLX polycarbonate resin, which provides high impact strength, UV protection, and light weight that are especially valuable in large panoramic roofs, sunroofs, and backlights, will be injection-molded at Ranger's state-of-the-art production facility in Carate Brianza, Italy. Ranger expects to develop new automotive glazing applications that will take advantage of the unique properties of GE's thermoplastic materials vs. conventional materials.

'Ranger is very excited about developing our new glazing line Organikglass using GE supplied materials. This will make Ranger the first company to manufacture world-class, light-weight, and impact-resistant PC side and rear car windows and especially panoramic roofs for automotive manufacturers. Our focus is on growth and innovation,' said Ranger CEO, Matteo Rossini. 'Lexan GLX polycarbonate resin will help us meet changing customer requirements for the latest glazing designs, colors, and shapes, while helping to reduce overall vehicle weight as a glass replacement.'

Headquartered in Carate Brianza with several production sites across Europe, Ranger is devoting this new facility to injection mold components such as roof glazing, side and rear windows, and backlights. With a proven thirty-year experience in the production of molds and complex equipment, its metallurgy and plastic materials know-how is the starting point for each project including this new glazing line. Ranger Group has doubled its sales, production sites, and staff in three years as a result of this dedication to advanced material technology solutions. Correspondingly, GE will provide technical guidance to Ranger regarding best practices for the use of its Lexan GLX PC resin in automotive glazing.
