AGC's Light Control Pair Glass Used on 'Gauge Changeable' Test Train

Tokyo, Apr 23, 2014 (JCN) - AGC announced that its lightweight light control pair glass has been installed in a 'gauge changeable' test train of Japan Railway Construction, Transport and Technology Agency, which made a test run on JR Kyushu's train line on April 20.

The window glass mounted in the test train is a pair glass combining a thin, strong chemically strengthened glass and light control glass WONDERLITETM. The product contributes to weight reduction of windows and train comfort with several features.

Lightweight laminated glass using chemically strengthened glass reduces weight by 30% compared to conventional products. In addition, inserting a highly adhesive interlayer between two sheets of chemically strengthened glass enables to
enhance the safety of the product.

Using WONDERLITETM, customers can adjust the transmissivity of outside light to suit their preferences. This light control function eliminates the need for curtains and enhances interior comfort with high heat shielding/thermal insulating glass.
