Scottish technology provider Ceres Holographics has announced a strategic partnership with Covestro to commercialize Bayfol HX photopolymer films for transparent automotive display applications.


Ceres Holographics uses them to create specialty solutions with customized holographic optical elements (HOEs) designed to enable a new generation of transparent display applications for automobiles and commercial vehicles. The new partnership represents the next stage in what has already been a long-standing cooperation between the two companies.


Bayfol HX film from Covestro is a transparent and thin film featuring a light-sensitive, self-developing photopolymer. It is ideal for the reproducible production of highly efficient volume holograms. Throughout their collaboration to date, the two partners have customized the film to meet the specific requirements of this application.


Ceres Holographics and Covestro have jointly developed holographic display solutions for mobility.

This transparent display solution enables new line-of-sight applications in automobiles and commercial vehicles that provides drivers, passengers and pedestrians with a safer and more pleasant experience on the road than before while still achieving the quality, price levels and production volumes demanded by automotive OEMs.


“Ceres Holographics has been testing how to harness the unique properties of our Bayfol HX film for holographic transparent display applications for years, and has produced outstanding results,” said Yuen-Ling Lok, Head of Commercial Operations, Holographic LightGuiding at Covestro.


“Our partnership with Covestro has enabled us to respond to the strong demand for cost-effective and easy-to-implement transparent display solutions in the automotive and commercial vehicle sectors,” added Andy Travers, Chief Executive Officer of Ceres Holographics.


Ceres holographic transparent display technology has already been successfully demonstrated in OEM prototypes, enabling full-color display of information on front, side and rear car windows. Ceres is currently involved in go-to-market programs with several global commercial vehicle and automotive OEMs targeting production dates between 2022 and 2025.
