American Glass Products Launches AGP Vario Plus Intelligent Glass Using Research Frontiers’ SPD-Smart Technology and Begins Global Marketing Campaign at SEMA Show

American Glass Products (AGP) is pleased to announce that it will unveil its AGP Vario Plus-Sky SPD-SmartGlass™ as well as its AGP Vario Plus-Polar glass at the 2007 SEMA Show in Las Vegas this week.

These new AGP intelligent glass products add innovative features to glass. Vario Plus-Sky SPD-SmartGlass™ enables users to instantly and precisely control the amount of light, glare and heat coming through glass using patented SPD light-control film technology licensed from Research Frontiers Incorporated (Nasdaq: REFR). AGP Vario Plus-Polar glass allows users to achieve enhanced privacy using state-of-the-art nano-particles LC technology.

This event marks the launch of AGP’s global marketing campaign for AGP Vario Plus. With more than 900 employees, and production plants and marketing offices on five continents, AGP is one of world’s leading manufacturers and suppliers of specialty glass to the automotive, marine, rail and architectural markets.

The company’s newest product, AGP Vario Plus-Sky SPD-SmartGlass, will be offered as a laminated glass, and will allow users to control the transparency of windows, sunroofs and other glazing products. With the touch of a button, AGP Vario Plus-Sky can switch from a completely dark state to a highly transparent one, or to any point in between. In addition to its unequalled shading capabilities, AGP Vario Plus-Sky offers exceptional safety and security benefits and it significantly reduces the amount of heat passing through the window into a vehicle’s cabin or other interior space. AGP Vario Plus-Sky also blocks more than 99% of harmful ultraviolet (UV) light.

“The SEMA Show is an ideal venue to initiate our global marketing efforts for AGP Vario Plus,” commented Norman Peña, Business Development Manager for American Glass Products. “SEMA is the world’s premier event for automotive specialty products and is expected to attract more than 100,000 industry professionals. Our exhibit’s featured products – including a front door glazing and a sunroof featuring AGP Vario Plus-Sky SPD-SmartGlass light-control technology – will introduce this revolutionary product offering to our global automotive target audiences of original equipment manufacturers and aftermarket distributors and installers. Our marketing campaign includes programs to also offer AGP Vario Plus to the marine, rail and architectural markets.”
