Liquid Crystal “Switchable” Film is an exciting technology that allows us to make glass alternately clear or opaque; it can also be used to project images on, like a projection screen. Liquid Crystal Film, often times referred to as Smart Film, is visibly altered by an electric current that changes the state of the liquid crystals embedded in the film. The film can be laminated between two pieces of glass for a new construction or added as an after market improvement to existing glass.
What is Smart Film?
Smart Film is a Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) Film . With an electrical current, the film can quickly change from clear (On) to opaque (Off). The pictures above are examples of Smart Film. When the power is turned Off, the liquid crystals turn into scattering position leaving the Smart Film opaque. When the power is turned On, the liquid crystals line up and changes the Smart Film from opaque to clear. The film can be dimmed to a desired amount of privacy with the use of a dimmer switch.
