Smart dimming film (STF) is also known as PDLC liquid crystal film (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal), PDLC is polymer dispersed liquid crystal, also known as electronically controlled dimming film, electronic curtains and so on.
A membrane-based product mixes a liquid crystal (LC) with a prepolymer and attaches it to a transparent conductive substrate to have both liquid and crystal characteristics, as well as significant photoelectric characteristics.
In the absence of an electric field, the disordered arrangement of molecules is in an opaque state, and under the action of an electric field, the molecules are arranged in an orderly manner along the direction of the electric field, so that it has translucency, and the electric field can be controlled by it converts between transparent and opaque states.
The dimming film is a new type of electronic light control product. The electronically controlled intelligent dimming film device injects a liquid crystal/polymer hybrid material between two transparent conductive films. In the absence of an electric field, the electronically controlled intelligent control film is Opaque state.
When the alternating current is applied, the liquid crystal molecules are arranged in an orderly manner, and the electro-dimming film is switched from the opaque state (OFF state) to the transparent state (ON state). Through the action of the electric field, a fast transition from the on state to the off state, the off state to the on state can be achieved.
In the power-off condition (off state), it is milky white, and when it is energized (on state), it is colorless and transparent.
The open state transmittance is not less than 75%, and the off-state transmittance is not more than 2%.
The viewing angle is not less than 140 degrees
Response time: off state (OFF state) → on state (ON state) is less than 5ms, on state (ON state) → off state (OFF state) is less than 50ms
Power consumption: 5W/m2
Size: Standard size is 102 inch*36 inch, other sizes can be customized according to customer requirements
Operating temperature is -6f to 140f
Product lifecycle is more than 50,000 hours
PDLC smart film principle diagram
In short, as the above fig shows, PDLC film is a huge flat capacitor, which realizes transparent or opaque effect by applying or removing electric field to drive the liquid crystal molecules aligned or disordered array. Following fig shows PDLC film’s usage.
