At CGT we are transitioning our materials from a passive, decorative role in the vehicle to an active role in the form of smart surfaces. Our new seating material featuring PPG’s capacitive inks is an outstanding example of how advanced technology can increase the functionality and corresponding user benefits of virtually any interior surface.

 

 

- Richard Vaughan, creative director for CGT.

Conduct  is an innovative synthetic leather that uses printable heating technology to replace conventional heating elements in vehicle seats, armrests, and steering wheels. It can also be used in a wide variety of other applications such as outdoor apparel and other applications where heated coverstock material is desired.

CGT’s Conduct  uses PPG’s printed conductive ink Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) technology – a printed, self-regulating heater that provides unprecedented levels of accuracy, control, and safety. Unlike traditional printed heaters, PTC heaters feature a resistive carbon coating that heats up when a current load is applied, then increases resistance at predetermined temperatures. Already used in a variety of applications including heated apparel produced for the 2018 Winter Olympics, PTC technology offers superior heat transfer with no hot spots, helps reduce power consumption, offers long service life, and eliminates the need for complicated electrical controls.

In addition to vehicle seats, PTC can be adapted for use as energy-efficient radiant heating for the passenger compartments of electric vehicles,” said Peter Votruba-Drzal, PPG global technical director, automotive OEM coatings. “These coatings are extremely thin, flexible and inherently safer than many existing heating sources.
