ELECTROCHROMIC FILM - HOW IT WORKS
The magic behind the electrochromic film / smart film for windows are the so called polymeric liquid crystals, coated in a polymer gel. This gel is a transparent electrically conductive substance with two layers of insulating coating. The liquid crystals inside the electrochromic film are chaotically scattered, causing the light to refract and this way the smart film remains opaque – which does not stop the flow of light completely, but limits transparency.
When the power ON button is used to supply electricity to the electrochromic film, the liquid crystals are arranged in a regular manner, they let the light in and the smart film becomes transparent. When different amount of voltage is used, the degree of transparency of the PDLC film can be controlled and you can apply the best option for your home, office or car.
The electrochromic film has an unlimited number of power ON and OFF cycles (transparent – opaque), does not fade with time, retains the same percentage of transparency and dimming.
Power ON – При подаване на електричество към смарт фолиото: полимерните течни кристали се подреждат и електрохроматичното фолио става прозрачно.
Power OFF – При спиране на електричеството към смарт фолиото: полимерните течни кристали преминават в хаотично състояние и фолиото става матирано.
