Basic of the technology
A thin laminated film of rod-like nano-scale particles suspended in a liquid layer is sandwiched between two glass sheets which are laminated together. Light transmission can be adjusted by applying a voltage, aligning more or less the suspended particles and letting light pass.
Freedom to control lighting
Control the amount of light entering inside the car through the glazing, at the simple touch of a button. Depending on the solution, the amount of light transmitted can be tuned on a continuous way from dark to clear and vice versa.
Light transmission varying from 35% down to <1% (in a clear-clear laminated glazing), depending on glass structure.
Many other contrast values are possible, depending on the expected applications.
AGC can provide a fully integrated system for Wonderlite glass, including the Electronic Controller System and dedicated software design, considering the vehicle architecture.
Outstanding (Thermal) comfort
In summer, sun heat rejection helps keeping comfortable temperatures in the car.
In winter, thanks to the use of LowE coating, can avoid the cold wall effect.
Enables the removal of the classical mechanical curtain, it can free up internal headroom for car occupants (~25mm).
Your glazing is always protecting your skin by preventing UV-Rays from entering the car, also in clear or dark states.
Reducing air-conditioning needs enables fuel savings and CO2 emissions decrease for thermic engines, and mileage extension for electrical vehicles.
