The key players of the automotive market, producers and distributors of equipment, spare parts, materials for repair and maintenance works, automotive components, car electrics and electronics, alarm and anti-theft systems, tires and disks, car care means, garage equipment and specialized equipment participate in the largest in Russia specialized exhibition InterAuto. About 400 companies from 36 regions of Russia and 9 foreign countries, including China, Germany and Italy present innovations and the latest achievements in all branches of the automotive industry.

Representatives from China form the majority of foreign participants. Some companies have been cooperating for several years already with Russian producers, opening their branches and even locating production facilities. So, for example, there is the Chinese representative office of the company on production of laminated and tempered automotive glass in Kaluga. The manager Tatyana Burylkina told the correspondent of expotrade.ru how a foreign company should work in the conditions of import substitution policy.

There is an automotive glass production facility in Kaluga City, Russia with an aggregate gross floor area of approximately 130,000 sq m and annual production capacity of approximately 4.0 million sq m. Phase 1 of the production facility has completed construction and commenced large-scale commercial production in February 2015. The second phase, which has a designed production capacity of approximately 8.1 million sq m, is under construction and is expected to commence commercial production in the fourth quarter of 2016.

The facilities produce laminated and tempered automotive glass. Laminated glass is made of two or more layers of float glass with PVB interlayers bonded between them. The PVB layers prevent objects striking the glass from penetrating the glass and prevent the glass from shattering into sharp pieces. Laminated glass is mainly used in automobile windshields. . Tempered glass is produced by heating float glass to softening point and rapidly cooling the surface uniformly with air to increase its strength. Tempered glass breaks into small pieces without sharp edges when struck by an object, thereby reducing injury to passengers. Tempered glass is mainly used in side and rear windows of vehicles. Wire heated glass is necessary specially for the Russian consumers. This type of glass possesses defogging and defrosting functions by embedding heating fine wires in the PVB interlayer of laminated glass.

There are also innovations presented at the show including HUD glass, which projects speedometer and other importing driving and navigational information on the windshield thereby enabling the driver to concentrate on the road ahead

Novelties from producers of obligatory accessories are of special interest at the attendees. For example the only in Russia domestic producer of children car salon chair displayed the latest models of the chair designed specifically to protect children from injury or death during collisions. Nikolai Kadilnikov, Head of Children Restraining Facilities department, told about the specification and required features of a children car salon chair. Special attention should be also paid to materials used in the production process.
