Switchable glass, also known as smart glass or privacy glass, is a glass solution that can change from frosted to clear with the flick of a switch. This innovative glass allows for instant privacy while still letting in light.

Switchable glass works using a small electrical current that passes through a special PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal) film sandwiched between two layers of glass. When electricity is applied, the liquid crystals align, allowing light to pass through and the glass to appear clear. When the electricity is turned off, the crystals scatter light, causing the glass to turn back to frosted.

Switchable glass is versatile and can be used in various settings, including corporate offices, residential homes, healthcare facilities, hospitality venues, and educational institutions. It’s ideal for creating privacy on demand in windows, doors, partitions, and even in innovative product displays.
