    Color Particles

    Can someone give me info on REFR's development of color particles or where I can find info? Thanks in advance.

    • Finally!! Just what I was waiting to hear. Better than I expected.

      I haven't spoken with them personally but have
      heard from 2 different sources that have spoken with
      Mr. Fairley at MSC that they were just waiting on
      some "scaled-up" materials from REFR and the
      impression my friend has was that "it would not take very
      long to coat the SPD films once they had these
      materials."

      Testing on a Weather-O-Meter should take no more than a
      month. Also, REFR has developed some internal tests for
      UV stability which gives them preliminary litmus
      test type results in a few hours, so they are in a
      position to predict with some degree of confidence whether
      a particular particle will be very durable and pass
      the extended weathering tests.

      Last I heard
      about company was that they met last week with one of
      their outside scale-up manufacturers and things are
      going very well and that they couldn't "share specifics
      at this
      time."

      Hope this helps,

    • Found this through Bob Acker. Long time holder.
      Friend who follows charts e-mailed me the
      following:

      "TC2000 indicators are showing REFR has had strong
      accumulation during the past weeks."

      BTW "shorts" ARE
      the reason. Well-known fact among us who watch, but
      they are trying hard to cover. Short Interest down
      40,000. They still have over 400,000 to go with stock at
      its lows and volume drying up. Can't be sleeping too
      well.

    • Making the educational system in Houston
      responsible for my ignorance would be like blaming the
      "shorts" for this stock performance: a pitiful excuse!
      Thanks anyhow for offering it. In return, I'll share
      with you some learning from the street I grew up in,
      be wise enough and don't ask pertinent questions
      like you do. They're not well received and could put
      you in trouble.
      Do you mean a BIG DOG or a dog
      with an attitude?(Chihuahua)!
      See you around.

    • As mentioned there are some techs that compete
      with SPD tech, however the very foundation of these is
      weak. You can only take the existing techs so far thats
      why improvments that have been made are only minute.
      As far as I know this is the case for all the techs
      that are out.For a new tech to start now it would take
      a fortune not to mention the time. It seems to me
      REFR has invented the WHEEL of the glass industry! The
      very foundation of the tech is superior.

      I've been hanging tight since 1990,
      how about you? We are just starting to see the first
      part of the wave. For us long time investors this is
      just something we all have predicted, and now you can
      Enjoy the Ride!!

      How about that Big Doggie?

    • Do they have schools in Houston???? Did you learn
      to read boy?? Do you know ANYTHING about SPD???? DO
      you KNOW WHAT BLACK PARTICLES mean?

      Thyraud,
      What rock did YOU crawl out from under??? If Dixon is
      right and y'all are Philistines then you must be the
      king!

      Do you know what REFR is doing? Evidently I've
      entered some black hole time warp where people haven't
      heard the news. Tell me did ANY of you go to the glass
      conference in '97? Did you see the action???? Do you have
      any idea HOW BIG THE MARKET IS? and you're WORRIED
      about competition?????

      Is there anyone here that
      has talked with Material Sciences. I'm waiting to
      hear how testing is going. If someone has that
      information lemme know. I'm trying to determine the time
      frame for production. I figure particle testing for
      large runs will take 3-4 months. This is information I
      came here to find. Don't need a link to every glass
      manufacturer in the world---no one's got anything that'll
      touch this puppy.

      Hey CL144 - This is already a
      BIG DOG in the industry buzz. You hang tight, man.
