Smart film is a new kind of smart glass technology in which a special film can be directly and easily applied to glass. The film adjusts to light under electric pressure to switch between a transparent and a semi-opaque state. It also meets the double requirements of glass on penetrability and privacy protection - the lighting is good even when it’s not transparent. It also insulates and reflects infared light, making your room warm in winter and cool in summer, and therefore conserves energy. Smart film utilizes the opto-electrical functions of optical film by employing liquid crystal (PDLC) optics.
Additional recommended knowledge
Technology of Smart Film
Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystals (PDLCs)
1. When the smart film is off power, the high polymer LC materials in it are in disorder, which makes light be unable to penetrate the film, and now it’s on opaque state.
2. When the smart film is on power, the high polymer LC materials in it are in order, which makes light penetrate the film, and now it’s a transparent film.
Application of Smart Film
Environmental and energy-saving for green building material. It uses transparent or haze temperature control film, makes the smart film a haze state when the indoor temperature is high, when the light reduces, the smart film is in a translucent state; when the light is weak, the smart film is in a transparent state.
use the projector on the crystal projection screen similar to a TV screen.
Examples of use
In the office
Indoor decoration of up-scale residence: Lighting Cover glass curtain, sunshine house, living room and bathroom compartment, embody host’s outstanding taste. The glass is in mist state when out of use, which will well protects your privacy, and when it turns to transparent, you may fully soaked in sunshine.
