Sound-lowering lubricant

Klüberalfa RM 93-101, a PFPE-based surface finishing gel, mitigates creaking and squeaking noises in moving polymer components. Compatible with a wide range of plastics and elastomers, Klüberalfa RM 93-101 is applied in thin, transparent layers that do not disrupt the aesthetics of the part to which it is adhered, such as door seals and dashboards.

Biometric identification

Adding an iris scanner to a car’s rearview mirror enables biometric identification of authorized vehicle users. When tied into other vehicle systems, the scanner can allow authorized users to start the car and personalize setup by automatically adjusting mirrors, steering wheel, seat position, music favorites, and GPS locations.

Discretely integrated into an automatic-dimming rearview mirror and related windscreen mount, the scanner is in the driver’s line of sight upon entering the car. It provides a consistent feature location across vehicle platforms and can share other electronic components.
