Switchable Glass

As the name itself suggests that the switchable glass by default is a Glass made out of switchable technology in contrast to the switchable film, which needs to be applied or retro fitted on to the existing glass, the switchable glass is a made to order product received directly from the factory, where the switchable film or PDLC film is laminated between two layers of glass. The switchable glass can be installed just as a normal glass, it is more or less like a plug & play solution. The switchable glass is available in various thickness like 8mm,10mm,12mm etc., the maximum width can be up to 6 feet & the maximum height can reach up to 12 feet for individual glass. Switchable Glass or Smart Glass can switch glass appearance with instant transition from clear to opaque & vice versa, in milliseconds. In its un-switched state or OFF state, the liquid crystals diffuse light, rendering the glass opaque. When switched ON, the liquid crystals align, allowing light to transmit without diffusion. Also, by variable voltage control, any state from clear to opaque can be programmed. It is definitely an improvement on curtains and blinds.
