Switchable glass and its daily maintenance


Switchable glass is a new type of special photoelectric glass product with sandwich structure, which is composed of liquid crystal film and two layers of glass, glued by high temperature and high pressure. The user controls the transparency and opacity of the glass by controlling whether the current is on or off. The glass itself not only has the characteristics of all safety glass, but also has the privacy protection function of controlling whether the glass is transparent or not.

Switchable glass and its daily maintenance

Switchable glass was invented and patented by researchers at Kent State University in the late 1980s. In China, people used to call switchable glass as intelligent electronic switchable glass, intelligent glass, liquid crystal glass, electronic control glass, color changing glass, PDLC glass, smart glass, magic glass, etc. Intelligent electronic control switchable glass began to enter the domestic market in 2003. Due to the high price and the lack of knowledge, it developed slowly in China in the next decade. With the sustained and rapid growth of the national economy and the rapid development of the domestic building materials market, the intelligent electronic control switchable glass has gradually been accepted by the construction and design industry and started to be applied on a large scale, With the further reduction of cost and market price, switchable glass has entered the application field of home decoration. I believe that this practical high-tech product will enter thousands of households in the near future.
