Our electrochromic foil

The electrochromic foil we have developed has revolutionized the dynamic smart glass market. By using a multilayer structure between two electrochromic plastic layers, we create a flexible and lightweight ConverLight® foil. An electronic control unit automatically regulates the tone of the film and the solar transmission.

By applying a low electrical voltage to the electrochromic foil, the solar transmittance and tone are controlled discretely. Since the foil only uses electricity during the time when the tone changes, it is very energy efficient.

The ConverLight foil is laminated between PVB foils and two tempered glass, which keeps it weather-protected. Since the ConverLight foil is flexible, ChromoGenics can, as the only supplier in the world, offer curved electrochromic glass.

 

ConverLight® Dynamic

The ConverLight glass laminate is available in two versions. ConverLight 65 and ConverLight 75. The ConverLight 65 version is preferred when heat transfer reduction is prioritized and the ConverLight 75 version is preferred when light transmission and esthetics is prioritized. Both versions works however well in all areas.

We have the environment in mind during the entire life cycle of the product and an environmental product declaration published, where the environmental impact of the product is declared.
