Innovative Glass Corp., [Plainview, N.Y.]announced today the completion of the largest SPD-SmartGlass window installation in the world, at the Indiana University Health Information and Translational Sciences Building using the latest generation SPD light-control film technology developed by Research Frontiers,[Woodbury, N.Y.] and produced by Hitachi Chemical Co. Ltd.[China].

The completion of this SPD-SmartGlass installation is a milestone for this industry and sets a new standard of being able to produce large architectural-sized electrified glass panels containing SPD-Smart film. This film has the ability to have its tint level and light transmission characteristics infinitely adjusted from less than 1 percent to over 50 percent in a matter of seconds using a simple wall switch or remote control. In addition to manual control, it can also automatically adjust its darkness according to environmental conditions, thus maximizing the efficient use of daylight to conserve energy. Glass produced with SPD-SmartGlass film also blocks 99 percentof harmful UV rays entering the building, according to a Feb. 11 Business Wire report.
