Thermochromic Glazing

  • Thermochromic laminated glazing (TLG) which regulate daylight automatically adapting dynamically to the continuously changing climatic conditions, aids in reducing the energy needs of a building and providing thermal comfort.
  • Glazing technology changes optical properties with respect to temperature c. It consists of mainly liquids or gels sandwiched between layers of glazing.
  • Chief advantages are daylight regulation adapted on a programmable and automatic basis without using of any electrical power unit, simple design, cheap laminating technology & raw materials, feasibility of large glazing area production, high material UV-stability.
  • New development in smart glass technology that is currently receiving considerable attention because of the potential it has to reduce energy use in buildings, particularly those located in warmer climates.
