Is it possible to project an image onto smart film?
Yes, smart film is ideal for use as an extremely high definition projection film. Eventually, we have many satisfied customers who use the glass facade of their store as a billboard.

Eventually, window tinting gives the car an attractive look and protects from the sun’s rays. Changes in traffic rules have seriously limited the possibilities of traditional methods. A modern, innovative approach comes to the rescue – electronic tinting using PDLC technology. Its features deserve the attention of motorists.

The essence of PDLC technology

Furthermore, Monochrome PDLC (LCD) technology develops by the South Korean company DM DISPLAY. It is a kind of electronic tinting based on the Smart-effect, which allows you to change the light transmission of glass. The PDLC technology considers being a close analogue of the American SPD technology.

In addition, the desired effect achieves by smart film containing a special layer. It contains a liquid-crystal substance between two polymer films. In the normal state, liquid crystals are randomly distributed over the material, which makes the layer as dense as possible and opaque to sunlight.

What happened when an electric voltage applies?

When voltages apply an electric field creates that gives the crystals a certain orientation. As well as, it freely moving between polymer films, In addition, they distribute in an orderly manner, due to which the density decreases and the light transmission of the layer increases, and hence the transparency of the entire glass.


Attention! With an increase in the strength of the smart film electric current, the degree of darkening of the glass increases. At the maximum electrical signal, it becomes almost black, and when it turns off, it becomes perfectly transparent.

Advantages and disadvantages of monochrome tinting

The following advantages of PDLC tinting stand out:

  1. The ability to adjust the degree of transparency allows you to provide an optimal view of the road at different times of the day. The risk of creating an emergency reduces by limiting visibility through tinted glass at night.
  2. Virtually complete UV protection. Subsequently, PDLC tinting is capable of absorbing over 90% of UV light.
  3. Smart filmmaintains a comfortable temperature in the cabin much better, which allows you to save on air conditioning and heating. They keep warm in winter and cool in summer.
  4. Even with maximum tinting, natural light penetrates well inside.
  5. Almost instantaneous change in the degree of transparency of the glass.

It should be noted the presence of disadvantages of such tinting

  1. High material and installation cost.
  2. The need to attract specialists for installation.
  3. Additional load on the battery.

Despite the high cost of smart film, their popularity is constantly growing. In addition, this is largely due to penalties for excessive tinting, and PDLC technology allows you to keep its degree within acceptable limits (light transmission is at least 75% for windshields).

PDLC Production technology

Secondly, monochrome PDLC tinting provides by “smart”, i.e. smart glass. It is made of two layers of ordinary automotive glass, between which a smart film places. Moreover, in it, a conductive liquid crystal substance places between two polymer films.

In addition, polymer films play the role of mechanical protection and electrical insulation. Special electrical outlets allow you to connect a smart film to a car battery, through which a voltage of 12 V is supplied to liquid crystals.

Differences between monochrome PDLC tinting and regular tinting

Moreover, smart film monochrome tinting technology PDLC – modern innovations for a comfortable ride Standard car window tinting involves sticking a dark polymer film on them. It can select by color and degree of transparency.

As well as, the main difference between such tinting and PDLC technology is the constancy of light transmission, which is set by the properties of the material and does not depend on external influences.

Regular tinting also has other disadvantages. The film can peel off the glass, which not only spoils the appearance, but interferes with the review. Located outside the glass, it can subject to various mechanical stresses.


Why is it important to install Pdlc smart film?

Differences from other types of electro toning

Firstly, pdlc smart film is one of the best inventions to make best privacy. Its basis is a film containing a layer of rod-shaped particles fill with a non-conductive liquid. In the normal state, these particles locate close to each other, making it difficult for light to penetrate.

Pdlc smart film

In this state, the light transmission capacity does not exceed 15%. When an electrical voltage applies, the particles orient in one direction and move away from each other.

Is pdlc smart film technology dependable?

Pdlc smart film technology considers more reliable. Such a film can glue to any car glass. At the same time, it has a very high mechanical strength.

The main disadvantages are: a higher price compared to PDLC and the lack of production in the Europe.  A well-known electronic tinting technology is Wigless. It provides for the installation of laminated smart glass. Smart film places between all layers. This increases the adjustment possibilities and achieves a blackout of up to 96%.

What are the advantages of smart film?

Such pdlc smart film creates a “thermos” effect, keeping the temperature in the cabin well. Almost 4 times more impact strength compared to conventional glass.

Main disadvantages: high cost and heavy weight. The latter circumstance has a particularly strong effect on the design of doors and windows.

The budget option for adjustable tinting is double glass. This technology provides for the installation of a system of two glasses, each of which has its own power window and its own guide elements. One of the glasses tints and the second is ordinary glass. Raising this or that glass, it is possible to provide transparency or darkening.

Important! In severe conditions, PDLC tinting looks preferable to other electric tinting.

Structure and principle of operation of PDLC film

Pdlc smart film works on PDLC technology. A liquid-crystal substance places between strong polymer films. When, an electric current applies the density of the crystals changes, which increases the light transmission capacity.

Such a film differs in that additional elements introduces into its composition that can play the role of a catalyst. They design to react to temperature. When a current passes through a substance, it heats, and the catalyst accelerates the process of changing transparency under the influence of a temperature background.

How Installing PDLC tint?

Pdlc smart film tinting can be done by replacing glass (ordinary glass with smart glass) or sticking an electro chromic film.

Installation of smart glass carries out in the following order:

  1. Order smart glasses. They are made for a specific car. To do this, it is necessary to inform not only its model, but also the factory number of the glasses.
  2. Dismantling the windshield and rear window. Dismantling the door frame and removing the side windows.
  3. Installation of new smart glasses.

There is no need to remove the glass to stick the film

  1. Glass surfaces being prepare. Removing old films, cleaning from dirt and dust.
  2. Carefully apply a soapy solution to the entire surface of the glass. It should be evenly distribute over the entire area.
  3. The film pasts. Smoothing is done with a rubber spatula, with smooth movements.
  4. Special copper contacts bond to the liquid crystal layer using silver paste. Next, the contacts solder to the power supply and the controller.

The pdlc smart film tinting process can equip with a system for automatically adjusting the degree of transparency.

 It achieves in 2 ways: By introducing a special program into the on-board computer or by installing external light sensors.

The cost of pdlc smart film

Electronic tinting is a rather expensive procedure. The average cost of materials for its various types is:

  1. P.D. _ the kit includes glasses, wires and a controller.
  2. Double glass. The kit includes glass and electric motors.
  3. .

The cost of tinting depends on the size of the glass and the class of the car. It should remember that the total area of ​​​​tinting varies significantly for different models.

Maintenance of PDLC tinted windows

Caring for PDLC glass is the same as caring for ordinary car windows. The pdlc smart film is also quite reliably protects by high-strength plastic. These materials well tolerate by frost, direct sunlight, temperature fluctuations, and moisture.

They can wash with cold and hot water. It allows using ordinary detergents use for cars. To avoid damage, it recommends using soft cups, without fiber coating. After washing, wipe the film dry with a cotton cloth or paper napkins. Do not accumulate condensation on the glass.

Power connections require maximum attention. Periodically check the condition of the electrical system

Is it possible to do electrical tinting with your own hands?

Important! Self-installation of pdlc smart film is unrealistic. Firstly, it is extremely difficult to find a finished product that will fit a particular car model. Glasses must order from the manufacturer or its dealer. Secondly, it will not be possible to cut glass with high quality, because.

The end seal of the product will reveal. Moisture can freely enter the interlayer space and accumulate there. Finally, it is very difficult to securely fasten the contacts with your own hands.

Do-it-yourself pdlc smart film is quite simple to stick with your own hands. Such tinting, in principle, can be done independently, observing extreme caution.

Work is carried out in the following order

  1. The dimensions of the glass are carefully measure.
  2. The film is cut out without removing the protective layer, according to the principle: the measure size plus 1 cm in each direction.
  3. The surface of thepdlc smart film is being prepared – cleaning from dust and dirt. Grease stains are especially carefully eliminated.
  4. Carefully remove the protective coating. The film glue to the glass from the inside of the car. It gently smooth out with a rubber spatula. There should be no air bubbles under the film.

Thus, tinting with pdlc smart film can be done by hand, but you should think about the appropriateness of such an event. Smart film is an expensive material. Poor quality of its gluing can lead to its rapid failure. There is a significant risk of financial loss.
