Solar Glass refers to either Electrochromic technology which is an active technology or to Thermochromic and Photochromic technology which are passive.
Electrochromic glass’ control is a crucial element in office and industrial buildings with large glazed surfaces in the façade as well as in classical conservatories. Electrochromic control glass is an intelligent alternative to common shading solutions and provides plenty of daylight in conservatories and behind glass façades as well as a permanently unobstructed view to the outside. The amount of light transmitted by the glass can be flexibly adapted to the user's needs, according to the weather conditions.
Thermochromic Glass uses heat from direct sunlight to tint when necessary. As the sun moves across the sky, the Glass will cool and return to clear. At night or in cloudy conditions, when direct sun is not present, the Glass remains clear and allows as much day lighting as possible. Our Thermochromic Glass is very advanced, yet simplest, dynamic glass technology available.
PHOTOCHROMIC SELF TINTING SOLAR FILM
For the first time ever, we are proud to introduce the Self-Tinting Solar Film that is tinted based on LIGHT and not as exposure to temperature. The film blocks 99% of the UV harmful light and 80% of the IR.
The advantages of the film are most valuable for energy savings and providing comfortable space. The heat isolation enabled by blocking the UV and IR will reduce the cooling costs. The film tinting will make the space much more comfortable as it will cut the glare and strong light.
Installation of the Self-Tinting Solar Film is quite easy, no need for electricity, it is activated by the amount of light. It is perfect for Automotive and Architecture applications.
This film comes at two versions:
- Self-Adhesive to Stick on Existing Glass
The film blocks >99% UV and >80% IR as well as self-tinting / darkening upon sunlight. It becomes darker when sunlight strength getting stronger and get back to the starting point when sunlight is down. Glass with our Solar Tinted Film could lower the temperature by 12° degrees.

SUNTUITIVE THERMOCHROMIC GLASS
Suntuitive Thermochromic Glass, a self-tinting dynamic glass technology that darkens gradually and dynamically when heated by direct sunlight.
The core-of the Thermochromic Glass is a Thermochromic inter-layer for dynamic windows which lightens and darkens by itself – with absolutely no mechanical intervention – based on heat from direct sunlight. The more direct and intense the sunlight is on the window the darker it will become. The system maximizes natural daylight while minimizing heat gain. No wires, no controls and no power supplies. As part of a dynamic window system, Thermochromic can help manage a building’s changing needs for passive solar heat gain and natural daylight. All together this can lower costs associated with heating, air conditioning and artiﬁcial lighting. Thermochromic also provides all of the beneﬁts of a safety laminated window. Thermochromic puts the view back in windows again by reducing the need for shades, blinds and other devises that block vision.

Electrochromic Glass, a dynamic glass technology that darkens gradually upon light sensor or by electrical switch.
The transparency of glass opens up the transition between the inside of a building and the outside world. This is aesthetically desirable, but not energetically, as the solar radiation heats the room, especially in the summer months. The sunniest weather conditions have, until now, required the use of blinds, shutters and awnings thereby darkening the room. The switchable Solar Control Glazing Electrochromic allows for uninhibited views to the exterior while dramatically reducing glare and unwanted room heating.
