Smartglass World

Smartglass World is an education portal, consultancy and marketplace to connect buyers and sellers of smartglass products and services.

We provide vendor-neutral information and advice that facilitates Net-Zero strategies for construction, transportation, healthcare and consumer devices.

What is Smartglass?

We define ‘smartglass’ as any transparent medium having structural modifications or embedded technologies which augment the normal behaviour of glass. These augmentations can manifest themselves as surface coatings or films, internal laminations or electronic circuits embedded into the glass.

Examples of technologies covered include: polymer-dispersed liquid crystals (PDLC), suspended particle devices (SPD), electrophoretic, electrochromic, photochromic, thermochromic, microfluidics, augmented-reality (AR) wearables, holographics, smart mirrors, micro-optics, RF-shielding and transparent photovoltaics.

The Untapped Potential of Smart Glass

Smart glass materials, both active and passive, offer huge benefits in reducing air conditioning costs by dynamically limiting solar radiation in buildings and vehicles. They also offer privacy for healthcare and exclusivity for retailers, adjusting their behaviour to changing solar conditions.

Whether you are an architect, interior designer, smart city advocate, transportation engineer or consumer appliance manufacturer, smart glass can bring sustainable and intelligent solutions for your customers.
