Craftsman Fabricated Glass Licensed To Manufacture And Offer SPD-Smart Laminated Glass And Plastic Products

Craftsman Fabricated Glass, Ltd. has acquired a license from Research Frontiers Inc. to make SPD-Smart™ laminated glass and plastic products using Research Frontiers’ patented SPD light-control film.

When integrated with glass or plastic panels, SPD-Smart film gives users the ability to rapidly, precisely and uniformly control the amount of light passing through glass or plastic.

Under the worldwide license agreement, Craftsman’s SPD-Smart glass and plastic panels can be supplied to Research Frontiers’ licensed end-product manufacturers for use in SPD-Smart windows, skylights, sunroofs, partitions, light tubes and many other products used every day in homes, buildings, cars, aircraft, boats, trains and motorcoaches.

Craftsman recently completed the installation of a new lamination line at its 230,000 square foot facility in Houston, Texas. This state-of-the-art line features advanced robotics and automation to reduce the handling of glass, thus ensuring superior quality. Additionally, the line is equipped with a digital PVB/PU (polyvinyl butyral/polyurethane) optimizer and upper level PVB/PU selector and storage system. The large capacity autoclave also has full heat-soak capabilities and is considered to be one of the most advanced laminating lines in the world. Craftsman’s SPD-Smart laminated products will be produced at this facility.

“Craftsman Fabricated Glass is a tremendous addition to the SPD infrastructure,” noted Joseph M. Harary, President of Research Frontiers. “They are a world-class company with significant production capacity, a commitment to superior product quality, and a management team highly regarded throughout the glass industry.”

“We have built our reputation on offering customers the quality products they demand,” said Bob Lawrence, President of Craftsman. “SPD light-control technology is among the most advanced glazing technologies in the world today and it will be a very important part of our new laminated glass product line.”
