How Smart Glass Works
Smart glass technology is an active glass technology that switches states with electricity. The unique particles or molecules inside our films scatter or align as films are turned on and off, allowing for opacity or transparency.
LCG® Smart Glass Film Types
Gauzy manufactures two different kinds of films: one for lamination and one for retrofitting onto existing glass. PDLC technology is available as as a laminated smart glass or adhesive smart film.
Laminated Smart Glass
Support sophisticated projects from the start
with films that are laminated between two pieces of glass by Gauzy’s fabrication partners.
Adhesive Smart Film
Transform existing glass into LCG® with an adhesive smart film with a scratch proof protective outer coating for long-lasting durability.

Working with Gauzy was a game-changer for our skylight project in Richmond, VA. Their ability to integrate LCG® IGU skylights with high-temperature film, and accommodating the unconventional triangle shapes we envisioned, was remarkable. They installed 1200 sqft of their smart film which transformed the space, both aesthetically and functionally. Gauzy’s commitment to excellence and their dedicated team made every step of the process a pleasure. I couldn’t be happier with the results, and I’m excited about the future possibilities with Gauzy.

My experience with Gauzy’s smart glass solutions has been consistently exceptional, and their recent work on the Beacon Global project in downtown DC was no exception. This project involved installing 2400 sqft of interior LCG®, and Gauzy’s expertise truly shone through. The ability to instantly transform the workspace, enhancing privacy or creating an open, collaborative environment, is exactly what was needed. Gauzy combines cutting-edge technology with unmatched customer service, making every project a seamless and enjoyable experience. I highly recommend Gauzy to anyone looking to elevate their space with innovative and functional smart glass solutions.

I’m very impressed with Gauzy’s smart glass, and the transformation it brought to this residence. With just 76 sq ft, the laminated smart glass added a level of sophistication and functionality to the space. The control over privacy and natural light at the touch of a button will elevate the resident’s living experience. Gauzy’s innovation and attention to detail are second to none, and I’m thrilled with the result. A big thank you to the Gauzy team for their outstanding work!

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 Glass 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.
Gauzy’s has a ultra low haze: avg. 2.5%. This is the best in the industry.
PDLC is an initialism for Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal.
Laminated LCG® smart glass is produced by sealing a sheet of PDLC film between two panes of glass by a glass fabricator or glass processor. A glazier or glass installer then installs the glass, and an electrician connects it to a power source.
Laminated smart glass is more durable because the film is protected from the elements. Laminated Smart glass is cleaned just like regular glass with standard products from both sides making it easy to clean, disinfect and sterilize.
Adhesive smart film is also known as retrofit film. Standard glass can be converted into smart glass with Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal (PDLC) adhesive smart films, which are designed to be applied to existing, already installed glass, for an instant upgrade. Instead of laminating the film between two pieces of glass, adhesive smart films have one side that is sticky, for adhesion onto glass. The other side has a scratch proof coating for some extra protection since the film is not protected from both sides.
Switchable smart glass can block 99% of all UV rays.
No. We have a network of professional installers that we’ve partnered with for smart glass and film installation.
