Headlamp condensation, a recurring evil for the automotive lighting industry, will be even more prevalent as full LED headlamps further penetrate the marketplace. Current venting solutions are capable of reducing, but not sustainably preventing, such condensation.
In a collaborative innovation effort that leverages each partner’s strengths, AML Systems and W.L. Gore are co-creating a new product that actively prevents condensation. This new solution offers an entirely new level of protection.
This paper will present the new technology that provides active moisture removal: AML’s Condensation Management Device (CMD) enabled by GORETM Condensation Management Products.
The CMD leverages electrical power and regenerative desiccants to remove recurring moisture from automotive exterior lamps.
