How Does It Work?

The product consists of a layer of liquid crystals which is sandwiched between a transparent protective film. When a small electric current is applied to the liquid crystal layer, it causes the liquid crystals to align in one direction, allowing visible light to pass through and making the glass transparent.

When the electric current is switched off, the liquid crystals re-orientate in all directions, blocking the gaps for visible light to pass through and making the glass opaque (translucent).

The film is also very easy to maintain and clean by using low pressure compressed air, and a soft bristled cleaning/dusting brush. Soft IPA wipes can also be used.
