AUTOMOTIVE GLASS
ENCAPSULATION

PPD has the unique ability to engineer and manufacture
the encapsulation of any type of glass or "glazing". Systems
may range from the complex articulating power sliders or
simple non-moving static modules.

GLASS ASSEMBLY

We utilize a creative cross-functional team of engineers and technical
support staff to develop everything from simple to complex assemblies.
Simple can be, placing an automotive door glass clip in a specific location.
Complex assemblies include proper location and application of rain
sensors, brackets and hinges.

ASSEMBLY & FINISHING

PPD can not only design, mold, or print your part. We can also assemble or finish
your components and products. PPD can snap, glue, bond, coat, paint, heat
staking or ultra-sonically weld your components for your finished assembly.

United Automotive Glazing

United Automotive Glazing specializes in automotive glazing products that are too small in volumes, difficult to make, non-standard, innovative, or in general the things that large glass suppliers may find too unprofitable due to large infrastructure. We can fill the need for smaller or boutique OEM’s that have a need for glass engineering and development, but for whatever reason, don’t have one. With our size and nimble capabilities, we can supply initial parts at more competitive pricing and in a fraction of the time of our larger competitors. We bring together complex innovations into one complete ready to install subsystem, including encapsulation if required. Our years of Engineering development experience enables us to provide glazing product designs from a black box concept to PPAP.

Advanced Glazing Encapsulation


PPD encompasses everything related to something clear enough to see through. This means we can work not only with glazing materials construction of traditional soda-lime, but also aluminosilicate, borosilicate, acrylic and polycarbonate. We can take these glazing materials and integrate the latest innovation, including electronics.  Our knowledge of glazing materials and injection molding materials combines into complex components such as exterior lens covers for ADAS sensors and cameras. We can be an asset to interior design studios that have a great idea but cannot figure out how to integrate it into the cab of a vehicle and maintain a luxury atmosphere. We can figure out that integration and give the studio their options.
