ElectroglaZ conductive glass


A new type of glass called ElectroglaZ has emerged from a collaboration between Zytronic and Pilkington, and enables special applications.

ElectroglaZ consists of layers of glass, those layers are partly conductive and partly nonconductive. In this way, low power devices (according to the developers, anything below 50 volts) can be powered without the need for unsightly wires behind the glass. As a result, electrical and electronic components can be suspended completely freely in a piece of glass. Ideal for example for interactive display cabinets in a museum, the medical world and certainly also for the home. For the latter category, a concept radio has been devised that is simply mounted on a sheet of glass. And indeed: no cord to be seen!
