Auto glass that automatically tints with the touch of a button is now available from EAT Glass. According to the company, the technology can be used in any make and model of vehicle, also creating a sound barrier, as well as offering additional protection against impacts, vandalism, and forced assaults.
Electronic Auto Tint Glass (EAT Glass) has released its newly available auto glass that automatically tints with the touch of a button, thus enabling drivers to control the amount of tint and light transmission. According to EAT Glass, the technology can be used in any make and model of vehicle.
The double paned glass also creates a sound barrier, as well as offering additional protection against impacts, vandalism, and forced assaults. The ability to effectively control the light control transmission allows Electric Auto Tint to significantly reduce the amount of infrared (IR) and to totally filter the ultraviolet (UV) rays entering the vehicle. Through this unique feature, Electric Auto Tint dramatically reduces the amount of heat and radiation inside the car improving the comfort level of passengers. When the windows are in an ‘off state’ the position particles are at a random alignment, reflecting and scattering light in all directions, blocking light transmission into the interior of the vehicle. When an electrical charged is applied, all the micron-sized particles are instantly aligned making the glass transparent, allowing the light to go through the window and any direction. All this happens with the touch of a button in a fraction of a second and, providing total control and immediate response.
The new technology developed exclusively by EAT Glass relies on a micro-thin glaze applied to two panes of automotive glass. Within the film, electricity-motivated particles are suspended. When current is cut to the glaze, the particles block light. When current is applied, the particles align to allow light to pass through. By controlling the amount of current supplied to the glaze, drivers are able to create the ideal level of tint for their needs.
The company says the technology requires no moving parts or maintenance and does not reduce visibility for vehicle occupants.
