About Indoor PDLC
Indoor PDLC films offer privacy without blocking visible light. The transition from PDLC glass off, which is opaque, to PDLC glass on, which is transparent, is quick (less than 10 milliseconds).
Indoor PDLC films are commonly used in commercial privacy partitions, bathroom enclosures in hotels, and for transparent displays.
Gauzy develops and manufactures four types of indoor PDLC films: White, Dark, Patterns, and Vizio.

Retrofit Vs. Laminated - What’s the difference?
PDLC films can either be laminated into new glass or retrofitted onto existing glass. With laminated PDLC, the film is sealed between two pieces of new glass with PVB, EVA, SGP or TPU adhesive interlayers — forming one piece of glass. This process turns the glass into durable switchable privacy glass that can withstand elements such as humidity, excessive cleaning, and high volume use. Laminated PDLC is ideal for new architectural projects or renovations in which existing glass will be replaced. When paired with tempered glass PDLC can add additional layers of safety if glass shatters. Broken pieces will stick to the plastic rather than shattering on the floor. On the other hand, retrofit PDLC should be used when glass can’t be replaced or in cases where glass needs to be thinner than a double pane. As its name suggests, retrofit glass is applied to existing glass. Gauzy specifically offers retrofit films with both a dry or a wet adhesive for easy installation by professionals on any glass. Both of Gauzy’s dry and wet retrofit PDLC films have a scratch-proof protective outer coating to prevent the possibility of damage during installation and for long lasting durability.
Both laminated and retrofit PDLC films should be handled only by professionals. For laminated PDLC an experienced partition company or glass installer should install the new glass. For retrofit PDLC, the film should be applied by a licensed window film installer. In addition, an electrician will need to connect the laminated or retrofit glass to its power source if it’s not a low voltage film
