AGC has announced its light control glass, WONDERLITE™ Dx, has been adopted for the panoramic sunroof of Toyota’s new Harrier, launched for sale on June 17, 2020.
When used as vehicle exterior glass, this product boasts the world’s fastest-response*1 time, enabling instantaneous control of light transmission. This marks the world’s first-ever adoption of this product in a mass production vehicle.
AGC’s light control glass WONDERLITE™ Dx is composed of a specialized film encapsulated between layers of interlayer in laminated automotive glass. By softening the sun’s glare in dimmed mode (opaque state) and providing a wide sense of openness in transparent mode (clear state), this product realizes a vehicle interior that allows pleasant light to pour in from the panoramic sunroof whenever the user wishes.
