Smart Film Composition

Vela Smart film is comprised of PDLC technology on conductive coated film developed by Gauzy, combined with a Pressure Sensitive wet or dry adhesive and Scratch Resistant Coating by Avery Dennison. This film is controlled by the Vela Gauzy Inside controller allowing the film to turn on and off instantly.

How Vela Smart Film Works

PDLC smart film technology actively switches states with electricity. The unique particles or molecules inside our films scatter or align as films are turned on and off, allowing light to pass through for opacity or transparency, and the switchable control of various forms of light (visible, IR, UV).

Off
On

When off, particles are scattered creating opacity for privacy, shading, solar control, or projection.

Enhance spaces for function and design

Retrofitting glass with Vela smart film instantly upgrades interior designs and the overall functionality of glass across diverse industries

FAQ

Questions and Answers

In the clear, or ON state, an electrical current is passed through a layer of film called PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal). The electrified state causes microscopic crystals to align along a number of parallel axes, thus allowing vision through the glass.

Smart film in its OFF state has a frosted or opaque appearance because the PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal) remain in a randomized configuration that refracts the light that enters the mixture.

Haze factor describes the amount of light scattered when light passes through a transparent sample. The lower the haze factor value, the higher the clarity of the sample, indicating fewer impurities.

Vela has a ultra low haze: avg. 2.5%. This is the best in the industry.

PDLC is an initialism for Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal.

Switchable smart film can block 99% of all UV rays.

What type of application and where is the switchable film being installed (interior, exterior, wet application, etc)?
What is the size (width and length) for each of the pieces in the project?
What are the glass specifications required (polished edges, low iron, etc)?
What is the wiring location required for each panel?
Are you an architect, glazier, or end-user?
What is the shipping address for the project?
