    Abstract: A glazing having a device for detecting a crack in the glazing comprises a sensor, substantially circumscribing a ply of glazing material. A surface contact, bonded to the glazing, is configured with a portion of the sensor to form a capacitive coupling for transferring AC signals in a frequency range. Preferably the sensor is frangible and voltage may be applied by a second surface contact. Alternatively, the glazing further comprises an electrically resistive element, such as a coating for heating the glazing, and voltage may be applied to the sensor by a spur from a busbar such that damage to coating, busbar or sensor resulting in arcing is detectable at the surface contact. An electronics module attached to the surface contact generates an alarm.

  • Patent number: 8663786
    Abstract: Disclosed is a polyester film for optical applications, and more specifically to a polyester film having refractive index of 1.6 to 1.7 and a film having refractive index of 1.4 to 1.6 on both surfaces of the polyester film, wherein a thickness of each coating layer is 0.03 to 0.1 ?m and total light transmittance of the entire film is 93% or more. The polyester film according to the embodiment has total light transmittance higher than the polyester film without the coating layer and is more suitable to use the polyester film for optical applications due to the excellent adhesive strength between the polyester film and layer for the post-processing working.
