FAQs: Smart Glass Technical Information
Smart Glass includes a film interlayer that is either laminated or retrofitted onto glass. This switchable film interlayer consists of a PDLC formulation, or an SPD emulsion, that is coated between two sheets of transparent materials that each have an ITO conductive coating.
The appearance of haze can be dependent on the lamination process or lighting conditions. External lighting factors, the lamination process and the angle at which you view Smart Glass can change the level of haze, as can the type of Smart Glass product. Gauzy LCG® Smart Glass products have the lowest level of haze in the market. The minimum haze for White LCG® can be as low as 2.5%.
The widths of Smart Glass films vary based on different product lines. Gauzy’s widest films are 1.8m (5.9ft) wide. Our films are available in rolls (up to 40m/131ft long) or cut to fit sheets with custom busbar positioning.
