Research News / 1.2.2017

Electrochromic glass darkens automatically when the sun shines and keeps the heat out. Previously it was available only in blue, and switching times were also long. Now, a new process makes it possible to manufacture other glass colors for the first time. And compared to previous models, switching is nearly ten times faster.

  • Applying voltage enables smart glass to darken or brighten accordingly.
  • Previously only available in blue and with long switching times. 
  • A new process facilitates faster electrochromic glass panes in different colors.
