Title
(EN) TEXTURED COHERENT REFLECTION COMPONENT
(FR) COMPOSANT DE RÉFLEXION COHÉRENTE TEXTURÉE
Abstract
(EN)
A trim component, such as a grill of a vehicle, includes a substrate having a 3-dimensional shape and defining a disrupted reflective surface including a plurality of facets over a curved surface. Each of the facets is configured to reflect an incident light beam in a common direction, for example, toward a given target. A reflective coating, such as a chrome plating layer, overlies the disrupted reflective surface. The facets may have similar shapes and/or be arranged in a repeating pattern, but with one or more irregular features. The sizes, shapes, and/or orientation direction of the facets may varying in a gradient based on the curvature of the curved surface. The trim component also includes a light source to illuminate the disrupted reflective surface. The light source may be hidden so it is not directly visible to a viewer, but instead is reflected by the disrupted reflective surface.

La présente invention concerne un composant de garniture, tel qu'une grille d'un véhicule, qui comprend un substrat ayant une forme tridimensionnelle et délimitant une surface réfléchissante rompue comprenant une pluralité de facettes sur une surface incurvée. Chacune des facettes est conçue pour réfléchir un faisceau de lumière incidente dans une direction commune, par exemple, vers une cible donnée. Un revêtement réfléchissant, tel qu'une couche de placage au chrome, recouvre la surface réfléchissante rompue. Les facettes peuvent avoir des formes similaires et/ou être agencées selon un motif répétitif, mais avec une ou plusieurs caractéristiques irrégulières. Les tailles, formes et/ou direction d'orientation des facettes peuvent varier dans un gradient sur la base de la courbure de la surface incurvée. Le composant de garniture comprend également une source de lumière pour éclairer la surface réfléchissante rompue. La source de lumière peut être cachée de sorte qu'elle n'est pas directement visible pour un observateur, mais elle est réfléchie par la surface réfléchissante rompue.
