Everything we do circle around electrochromic materials. Years of groundbreaking research at the Ångström Laboratory at Uppsala University have resulted in a unique patent portfolio that have given ChromoGenics a world leading position when it comes to developing electrochromic solutions.
We are not the only one who strongly believes in the potential of electrochromic materials. Stephen Selkowitz, renowned building scientist at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, USA regards electrochromic film and glazing “as the most promising switchable technology for use in buildings.”
Putting atoms to work
In recent years, we have developed an electrochromic film that revolutionized the market for dynamic glass. By using a multilayer structure comprising several different materials between two electrochromic plastic films, we create a flexible and lightweight ConverLight® foil capable of changing its degree of shading by applying a low electrical voltage.
In addition, the foil does not use electricity except when the shading is being altered. This makes it very energy-efficient in comparison with other technologies for regulating shading. An electronic control unit can regulate the foil’s shading, either manually or automatically, for example, by connecting it to a sensor network.
This electrochromic film is the centerpiece in our product ConverLight.
