The Next Generation of Intelligent Glazing is Being Developed at Dow Consumer Solutions Today

Switchable privacy glass and energy-efficient smart glazing solutions are based on siloxane-enabled liquid crystal technology and change their optical or solar control characteristics – switch from clear to translucent – in response to signals from an electronic driver. There are no exterior mechanical parts to maintain or risk being damaged by severe weather conditions.

What Sets Dow Consumer Solutions' Dynamic Glazing Technology Apart

Dow Consumer Solutions' intelligent glass technology is highly controllable unlike static solar control glazing (such as low-E glass) and reactive thermochromic or photochromic glazing. It has the potential to be:

  • Integrated into computerized building management systems
  • Programmed to deliver tailored responses based on combinations of factors, including room occupancy, solar intensity and climatic conditions

Compared with other smart glass technologies, this solution from Dow:

  • Is low haze when clear–a significant breakthrough in optical quality
  • Changes states quickly–in a matter of seconds
  • Draws power only for the instant it takes to change from one state to another, for greater energy efficiency 

Switchable Glazing Technology in Development at Dow Consumer Solutions:

  • Learn how it works
  • See what it can be programmed to do
  • Consider the potential
