AGC Automotive Europe replacement glass division announces windshields “as compliant with ADAS as Original Equipment windshields”
ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) camera recalibration requires many things to go well: replacement windshield quality is one of them. AGC Automotive Europe proudly states that AGC and Nordglass windshields for aftermarket are as compliant with ADAS as Original Equipment windshields.
ARG (Automotive Replacement Glass) market has come under intense scrutiny in the recent years due to the increasing popularity of advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) technologies. Windshield replacement is no longer a straightforward mechanical job but involves increasingly complex technologies, requiring top quality materials and skilled people to perform the replacement. Ultimately, the success or failure of ADAS windshield replacement boils down to the safety of the driver and his passengers: a botched job can have terrible consequences.
AGC is committing to the ARG market with a statement “our windshields are as compliant with ADAS as Original Equipment windshields”. To earn the ADAS compliant status, AGC and NordGlass windshields go through a specific quality testing procedure during the development phase. Then, during production, the windshields are rigorously checked on critical parameters for the camera area, in line with the strictest OE requirements.
AGC is gradually adding stickers on the windshields that have earned the ADAS compliant status. By choosing an ADAS compliant windshield for any ADAS replacement, the replacement glass fitter can be sure to deliver the best standards of performance and safety.
