The Fraunhofer Institute in collaboration with [link url=http://www.tilse.com/yachtverglasung-yacht-glazing/de/glas-schiffstechnik-ship-technology.php target=_blank]TILSE[/link], the manufacturer of Formglas, has developed electrochromic glass, which automatically intensifies its tint when exposed to sunlight. Organic monomers, which were added to specifically developed resins, thereby facilitate a ten times faster tinting process than outdated translucent indium tin oxide. Currently, the glass changes to a dark blue, while additional colors like red and violet shall be possible in the future.
