                      Research Frontiers was incorporated in New York in 1965 and reincorporated in Delaware in 1989. The Company develops and licenses its patented suspended particle device (SPD-Smart) light-control technology to other companies that man...moreufacture and market either the SPD-Smart chemical emulsion, light-control film made from the chemical emulsion, lamination services, electronics to power end-products incorporating the film, or the end-products themselves such as smart windows, skylights and sunroofs. The Company has over 40 companies that, in the aggregate, are licensed to primarily serve four major SPD-Smart application areas in every country of the world. SPD-Smart products use microscopic light-absorbing nanoparticles that are typically suspended in a film. These particles align when an electrical v...moreoltage is applied, thus permitting light to pass through the film. The Company uses the following trademarks: SPD-Smart™, SPD-SmartGlass™, VaryFast™, SPD-CleanTech™, SPD Clean Technology™, SmartGlass™, The View of the Future - Everywhere you Look™, Powered by SPD™, Powered by SPD-CleanTech™, Powered by SPD Clean Technology™, SG Enabled™, SPD Green and Clean™, SPD On-Board™, Speed Matters™, VariGuard™ and Visit SmartGlass.com - to change your view of the world™. SPD-SmartGlass has also been shown in armored automotive glass applications, recreational vehicles, and a new market is also beginning to develop for personalized custom conversions of automobiles for owners who wish to express themselves through the design of the cars they own and/or drive. The Company’s licensees are categorized into four main areas: materials for making films (emulsions), film, lamination of film to glass or plastic, and end-products. Emulsion makers produce and combine the necessary materials from which SPD-Smart films are made.lessless
