IMD PUR

KURZ IMD PUR: A smart solution for autonomous driving

Hello Future! When it comes to automobile front designs, completely new rules apply. Materials must be tailored to the requirements of self-driving cars with regard to artificial intelligence, design, and durability. Front styles containing electronic and photoelements. Sturdy surfaces boasting not only outstanding durability, but breathtaking depth effects and self-healing materials. Compositions supporting radar and LiDAR functions. The vehicles of tomorrow will communicate, operate, and react with other road users, and shape the streetscape of the future.

KURZ’s response to the mobility needs of the future: IMD PUR

Smooth, aerodynamic and hazard-reducing surfaces, maximum functionality, and design options without equal – cars with these features will shape the streetscape of tomorrow. In particular front ends with innovative decorations, which are becoming core brand elements, conceal the intelligence of self-driving cars.  We at KURZ have worked out a wonderful solution for manufacturers and suppliers: IMD PUR. It combines the best of two worlds:

Self-healing, futuristic, with depth effect: ‘Front end’, the new brand label

A sophisticated production process makes it possible. Even very thin PUR layers of 0.2 mm display an enthralling crystalline depth effect.

IMD PUR also enhances interiors

IMD PUR not only enhances vehicle exteriors, it makes for breathtaking effects in interiors as well. Imagine single-image designs that allow light to pass through, with overlapping structures that create a pronounced three-dimensional appearance and simulate fascinating depth. And all in combination with backlighting effects that lend interiors a custom-made and special atmosphere. IMD PUR gives your imagination free rein to amaze your customers with some very special creations.
