Smart Glass

Glimm PDLC Switchable Film (SMART FILM which is made of two layers of transparent conductive films sandwiched with polymer dispersed liquid crystal material, is the core material to make smart glass.

By controlling the modem switch, it can turn glass from transparent to opaque, and back again in milliseconds. This outstanding electro-optical characteristic enables it to a wide range of application in commercial entertainment, aviation and maritime, rail transportation, store windows and other critical national facilities, sites and so on.


The secret of its characteristic is the polymer dispersed liquid crystal technology. Liquid crystals molecules in the film are oriented randomly oriented.

When the power is OFF, the crystals scatter the light and the product appears shaded.

When an electronic current is applied and the product is ON, the liquid crystal molecules align and the inside light can penetrate through it. Thus, the product appears transparent.

The customized smart glass is available and can be directly installed on specified projects.


Smart film can adjust light under electric pressure to switch between transparent and mist, and meet the double requirements of glass on penetrability and privacy protection which are the most functional feature of PDLC film;

it can guarantee adequate lighting even when it’s not transparent, warm in winter and cool in summer. The infrared reflective insulating effect makes the Inner house cool and comfortable. This is unreachable by other curtains of today.
