Valeo, the world's leading manufacturer of automotive lighting products, has chosen DuPont™ Zytel® HTN PPA for use in adaptive front lighting systems that are used in models such as the Volkswagen Passat or the Citroen C4. Such systems provide drivers with enhanced night visibility for improved safety.
Adaptive headlamp systems can actively change the intensity and direction of illumination in response to changes in vehicle speed or steering angle. As a result, drivers can see road curves better at night. The significant increase in night driving illumination minimizes driver stress and fatigue at road curves and intersections, thus improving driver comfort in all weather and road conditions. Valeo's Xenon headlamps are designed for medium to high speed driving and can double the driver's visibility distance on road curves.
