Smart film/glass, also known as privacy film/glass or intelligent film/glass, is a switchable film/glass used for adaptive partitioning in locations that require customized privacy. This modern system utilizes Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) technology to provide instant privacy at the flick of a switch through electronically controlled translucency.
The liquid crystal molecules, in their natural state (when no electric current is applied), are scattered randomly, which creates an frosted (opaque) state to block vision and allow for full privacy. When electric current is applied, the liquid crystals are aligned parallel and the light pass through, creating a clear (transparent) state.
Over the years there have been a number of improvements made to the liquid crystal and the latest generation of film offers excellent performance, consistency, clarity and longevity.
This unique film technology also transforms any glass into a high definition rear projection screen allowing you to display corporate presentations, TV images and videos. A truly innovative product making switchable film/glass technology accessible to everyone while giving your home or business the added WOW factor.
Self-adhesive smart film is manufactured with 1 PDLC layer, 2 ITO films, 2 PET films and a self-adhesive cling layer on one side (peel and stick) which makes it easy to apply to both new and existing glass (no specialist installation equipment required).
Using either PVB or EVA (bagging method) with a standard autoclave, switchable smart glass is made of one piece of non-adhesive smart film, two pieces of interlayer (PVB/EVA) and two pieces of glass.
