Firstly, smart film, just like smart glass, performs the function of intelligent glass dimming to achieve 100% privacy. In opaque mode, glass uses to project images or videos.
The glass state can be changed from transparent to opaque at the touch of a button.
Smart film is a technological and modern tool: change, expand and delimit a fixed space whenever you want.
Smart film in the commercial sector
Moreover, smart film is an easy way to ensure privacy while using the conference room. Also, very often, in the offices of managers there is a glass door and it is not entirely ethical and comfortable to conduct important negotiations with it.
PDLC films easily solve this problem As well as, it is the easiest way to ensure privacy during an important meeting.
There are three sizes of smart film
- 1200 mm
- 1500 mm
- 1800 mm
The length of the canvas can be any but not more than 4000 mm.
Any color scheme is available.
Installation on old glasses or windows is possible.
PDLC film is glued onto finished clear or frosted glass.
Frequently asked questions about smart film
- Does smart film block harmful UV rays?
Yes, it blocks over 98% of harmful UV rays in both activated and inactive states.
- Is smart film energy efficient?
Yes, smart film consumes 3 to 6 watts per square meter.
- How else can smart film be used?
Smart film is very popular for projection screens, electronic blinds, and whiteboards and high-tech windows.
- How much does smart film cost?
Each project with smart glass and smart film is special. We make your order according to individual sizes and criteria, so the price of smart film is always different.
Is it possible to install smart film on only half of the glass?
Yes, you can install our smart film on any part of the glass.
Is smart film cheaper than smart glass?
Yes, you pay only for the film itself, its application and connection.
What else needs for smart film to work?
Moreover, you will need electricity (220V) and the transformer that comes with the film.
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:
- 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.
- Virtually complete UV protection. Subsequently, PDLC tinting is capable of absorbing over 90% of UV light.
- 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.
- Even with maximum tinting, natural light penetrates well inside.
- Almost instantaneous change in the degree of transparency of the glass.
It should be noted the presence of disadvantages of such tinting
- High material and installation cost.
- The need to attract specialists for installation.
- 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.
