Research Frontiers

Electronically tintable glass developed by Research Frontiers changes the tint of any window, sunroof or skylight by electrically aligning tiny particles in a thin film within the glass or plastic. With the touch of a button, users can instantly change or tune the tint of their glass to help keep out harsh sunlight and 95% of the heat in its tinted (power off) state. Patented SPD-SmartGlass technology effectively blocks UV and infrared rays regardless of whether the glass is in its clear or tinted state, helping keep cars, planes, yachts, homes, offices and artwork cooler and protected.

SPD-SmartGlass is versatile and can be controlled in many ways. For example SPD-SmartGlass can be operated from a wall switch, dimmer, motion detector, light or temperature sensor, Zuli or other smartplug and can be easily integrated into any building control system.

Research Frontiers has invested over $100 million to develop and license out this technology to over 40 companies around the world to serve the global market.
