are getting bigger and also customers have higher demands to interior materials regarding quality, design and haptics.
Suppliers and interior engineers tried to improve established plastics like PMMA, but also apply new plastics like COC.
However they waived one of the most sophisticated materials – glass. Today's glass has the properties to outperform plastic in terms of quality, haptics and processing.
