2. Louisenthal: Partnership with IAV and development of new Electrical Vehicle heating solutions
 
  • Louisenthal (know for its high security foil for banknotes) and engineering specialist IAV have developed an energy-efficient heating concept for electric vehicles that is intended to use far less energy while increasing comfort for drivers and passengers.
  • The core of the heating concept is a thin, cost-effective and easy-to-process foil from Louisenthal. A network of conductors is to be embedded in this foil known as ‘SmartMesh’, which heats up when the operating voltage is applied.
  • Daniel Lenssen, Director Business Development at Louisenthal. “The foil is one example of how we are applying our technological expertise in banknote and security papers to new industries where we can provide innovative development services”.
