PriWatt™ smart film is composed of a thin film interlayer of liquid crystals dispersed in a polymer matrix (PDLC) laminated between two plastic substrates coated on the inner face with a thin layer of conductive material. By applying a small electrical current, its state can change from opaque to transparent and vice versa.

How it works?
Stimulated with electrical current, liquid crystal molecules line up and incidental light passes through, creating highly transparent PriWatt™ Film. When power is switched off, liquid crystals reorient themselves randomly, scattering light and the PriWatt™ Film becomes opaque.

PriWatt™ Film Structure
Polymer-dispersed liquid crystal (PDLC) belongs to a class of electrically, photonically and thermally activated technologies referred to as ‘Smart Glass’. In the past three decades, PDLC technology has been industrially developed in the worldwide scale and provided commercialized products mainly as electrically switchable ‘Smart Glass’ in the commercial and residential markets for privacy and security applications.
