Isoclima’s CromaLite brand SPD-Smart products are for a variety of smart glass applications including smart windows for the global architectural, marine and automotive markets.
At the heart of CromaLite smart glass is next-generation SPD light-control film invented by Research Frontiers. When integrated with glass or plastic panels, SPD-Smart film gives users the ability to rapidly, precisely and uniformly control the amount if light passing through products such as windows, skylights and sunroofs.
This is a major achievement over “electrochromic” light-control technology, which can be extremely slow and relies on electrochemical reactions to induce a color change. In moderate and larger sized electrochromic panels, switching speed is even slower and non-uniform (creating an objectionable “iris effect” where darkening first occurs at the outer edge of the window and then slowly works its way towards the center of the window).
To manufacture its CromaLite products, Isoclima is now purchasing the basic chemicals from Research Frontiers’ licensee Dainippon Ink & Chemicals Incorporated (DIC), one of the world’s leading diversified chemical companies. Isoclima then processes these chemicals and coats them into SPD-Smart film in Italy. This film can then be shipped by Isoclima to its glass fabrication facilities in Europe or North America to produce CromaLite laminated and insulated glass and plastic panels, as well as end-products such as windows, skylights and marine glass.
