What is switchable smart glass?


Switchable smart glass alternates between the clear look they offer, with a soft white color that does not allow the eye to see through it, at the touch of a button. This is achieved by connecting it to the electric current and providing a certain voltage. The smart glass has all the features of safety glasses, as they are basically multilayered glass with an inner membrane, improving the uniqueness of the space and upgrading the living standard.

Due to the features of the internal liquid crystal film, smart glass can also be used as a display screen, replacing the standard display screen with a high definition screen. Unlike ordinary display screens, Smart glass gives the same clear picture on both sides, allowing the headlamp to be placed to the opposite side of the viewers.

Smart glass can reflect more than 90% of infrared rays and over 99% of ultraviolet rays thus reducing indoor temperature and protecting against harmful ultraviolet radiation, which is responsible for the wear of furniture and various materials, as well as skin diseases.

The Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal in the middle of the two glass sheets is bonded by means of high temperature and high pressure by the method of welding multilayered glasses, creating new photoelectric glass.

Smart switchable glasses have the functionality of common glass and an electronic curtain. In the absence of electricity, the glassworks like an electronic curtain, which, by providing an electric field, makes the glass clear and offers an unobstructed view.

In the absence of electric field (POWER OFF) the crystals are unevenly placed in the space, giving a white color to the glass. Only with the supply of electric power (POWER ON), the crystals are aligned giving the transparency to the glass.
