  • Patent number: 10639970
    Abstract: A front quarter glass includes a window plate, a frame-like black ceramic layer on a peripheral portion of an interior side surface, and an anti-fogging film provided in a region excluding an entire peripheral portion of the window plate. A boundary is between the regions where the anti-fogging film is provided and not provided, has no perspective distortion, and has a boundary line of 10-200 ?m that is visually recognized by scattering of incoming light. An outer periphery of the anti-fogging film is located is located 8 mm (0.31 inch) inside from an inner periphery of the black ceramic layer in a first region. The first region is to less than 50% of an entire inner periphery including a lower front portion. The outer periphery of the anti-fogging film is located 8-35 mm (0.31-1.38 inches) inside the inner periphery of the black ceramic layer in a second region excluding the first region.

  • Publication number: 20200062086
    Abstract: Provided are a vehicle windshield equipped with a transparent film at a visual field area, where a negative effect on a driving visibility due to a boundary line between a forming area and a non-forming area of the transparent film is improved, and a vehicle component having the vehicle windshield. The vehicle windshield includes: a window plate; and a transparent film provided at a surface on a vehicle-interior side of the window plate, wherein the vehicle windshield includes a first area where the transparent film is not provided and a second area where the transparent film is provided, at a central area when viewed from a front side, and a boundary between the first area and the second area has no perspective distortion and is constituted by a boundary line having line width visually recognized by scattering of irradiated light of 10 ?m to 200 ?m.

  • Publication number: 20190375275
    Abstract: A vehicle windshield includes a window plate and an anti-fogging film provided on an interior side surface of the window plate, with a first region and a second region within a see-through region. The anti-fogging film is not on the first region but on the second region. The first region includes a belt-like region in an upper portion of the see-through region. The second region is a region that includes at least a test area B and that includes a continuous projection portion provided on an upper side. The anti-fogging film in the second region has a minimum film thickness of no less than 5 ?m. At least a boundary between the first region and the second region excluding the projection portion has no perspective distortion and is formed by a boundary line having a linewidth of 10-200 ?m that is visually recognized by scattering of incoming light.
