Switchable Privacy Glass

When the power is off the liquid crystal molecules are randomly oriented, scattering incidental light. This renders the Switchable Privacy Glass panel opaque. When an electric current is applied the liquid crystal molecules line up and the incidental light passes through, making the Switchable Privacy Glass panel clear.

Features and Benefits

  1. Transforms from a cloudy white, opaque barrier to an optically clear state with a flick of a switch.
  2. Allows Architects and Contractors to provide creative design concepts and to incorporate Solar Protection and/or Energy Efficiency with engineering flexibility.
  3. Can be manufactured in curved form, odd shapes, or even hole-punched to accommodate specific display applications.
  4. Panels are available in single or double glazed units.
  5. No distraction of shutters blinds or drapes.
  6. Great solution for a rear-projection screen with high contrast.
  7. Blocks 99% of UV rays.
  8. Low working voltage.
how PDLC film works

NAVDisplay glazing is a sandwich of conventional glass laminated to liquid crystal technology. A typical interior glazing unit is made of a sheet of 5 or 6 mm annealed glass on each side, with the liquid crystal Switchable Privacy Film packaged in between. The film package consists of two layers of transparent conductive films enclosing PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal) material. The film includes electrical wiring that connects to a transformer, which supplies power for the pane’s operation.

PDLC is a medium whose light scattering power is adjustable through applying an electric field. In their natural (uncharged) state, the PDLC droplets randomly align. The ordinary refractive index of these liquid crystals does not match that of the polymer, so the incident light is scattered white translucent. When an electric field is applied across the material, the PDLC droplets re-orient, and incident light can pass through, resulting in the transparent state.
