ELECTROCHROMIC GLASS

Quality

Test and durability

ChromoGenics continuously performs several thorough tests in order to ensure product quality and sustainability. This means that our products provide full warranties for long-term customer satisfaction. Tests are being performed within the following areas:

Light and temperature
To determine optics and temperature properties, the spectral properties are measured to calculate the optics and temperature data of the different glass configurations.

Dynamic function
The test matrix used to evaluate the dynamic (electrochromic) function is based on internally developed tests and international test standards (ISO standards). Internal tests are accelerated tests developed to show at least 20 years of service life. The internal tests have been developed in consultation with experts in lifetime tests for electrochemical systems.

Mechanical strength and durability
The electrochromic glass is tested according to international standards for laminated safety and security glass. Our dynamic glass has been tested according to EN ISO 356 and fulfills the requirements for class P4A. The tests have been performed by RISE-SP.

Sound
The sound reducing properties have been tested externally at RISE-SP.

ChromoGenics works in accordance with ISO 9001 (quality management system) and ISO 14001 (environmental management system). The products are handled and approved according to Byggvarubedömningen.

The environmental impact of the product is secured in EPD (Environment product declaration). Destruction of the product is certified in cooperation with Swede Glass United.

TESTS ON ELECTROCHROMIC GLASS

Field tests in Morocco

ChromoGenics also performs accelerated field tests focused on durability. The tests are being conducted in Morocco where our products ConverLight® Dynamic65 & 75 naturally are being exposed to high levels of solar radiation and high temperatures all year around. The products are mounted at angles of 90, 45 and 5 degrees to cover the most common product applications. The glasses switch between dark and bright mode through time-controlled automation. The electrochromic glasses are inspected regularly and light measurements are made every week.

ChromoGenics develops products with the environment and sustainability in mind throughout the entire process. Energy and sustainability go hand in hand. Therefore, a lower energy consumption also means a reduced environmental footprint. You can achieve energy savings of around 30-40% and decrease the building’s CO2 emissions by using our products.
