My Town: Jenison company's energy-saving glass on display in Muskegon

-------------NEWS RELEASE--------------

MUSKEGON, Mich. (Grand Valley State University) — An emerging, energy-saving glass technology created by a Jenison-based company is being showcased at Grand Valley State University’s Michigan Alternative and Renewable Energy Center.

The thermochromic technology, made by Pleotint, LLC, provides commercial and residential properties the opportunity to save money in energy costs. The glass gradually darkens in response to rising temperatures caused by direct sunlight, then cools as the sun moves across the sky, returning to a clear, neutral state in cloudy or dark conditions. It is North America’s first commercially available thermochromic interlayer for laminated glass.

“Showcasing and supporting emerging technologies is consistent with the mission of MAREC,” said Arn Boezaart, director of MAREC. “The Suntuitive interlayer represents break-through technology that can be used in a variety of insulated glass applications.”
