Discussion details the advancement of high performance thermochromic windows.

The world has to continue to look for ways to advance energy efficiency in glass but allow the occupants the ability to have their view of the outside surroundings.

Pleotint Founder and CEO Dr. Harlan Byker was a key presenter at the annual “Building with Glass; Aesthetics and Functions” Conference held this week in Singapore. Dr. Byker’s talk focused on dynamic thermochromic windows, with a nod towards the Suntuitive® Glass that he invented.

"I was extremely honored to be speaking about our game-changing product at such an important forum. The world has to continue to look for ways to advance energy efficiency in glass but allow the occupants the ability to have their view of the outside surroundings. Being able to educate the attendees on what we’ve developed at Pleotint with Suntuitive Glass will go a long way to bringing these innovations further into the mainstream,” said Byker, who also is the sole inventor of the chemistry portion of the world’s only commercially successful electrochromic device, the auto-dimming rear-view mirror for motor vehicles.

Dr. Byker’s presentation emphasis was on the benefits of Suntuitive Glass including the ability to self-tint when warmed by direct sunlight, thus saving energy by reducing air conditioning needs while still providing natural daylighting. In addition the capability of Suntuitive Glass’ interior fade protection, and safety and sound advantages over typical insulating glass units were covered in-depth.

Dr. Byker was an invited speaker during the daylong conference sponsored by Singapore Safety Glass that also featured presentations on other extremely important glass products from around the world.

While in Singapore, Dr. Byker also discussed a major ongoing project there that will incorporate Suntuitive Glass into one of the largest installations of its kind.
