Liquid Crystal Film by Gauzy

Liquid Crystal is considered the fourth state of matter, sharing properties of both liquid and crystal phases. Gauzy creates LCG® using PDLC (polymer dispersed liquid crystal) Films which include a unique UV curing formulation consisting of LC + Polymer+ Initiator + Micro-Spacer + UV Stabilizer. This combination enables high control of process parameters and control over crystal morphology in reduced periods of time.

Gauzy offers two different applications for all our Liquid Crystal film technologies: RetroFit and Laminated. All films are characterized by ultra-low haze, superior optical performance, and are available as custom laser cut sheets, or raw material rolls, with a maximum width of 1.8m

How Does Liquid Crystal Film Work?

Gauzy’s patented FLEX and MultiPlex LC Controllers employ unique waveforms, allowing premium optical performance and longevity of films

Click on the “On / Off” switch in the graphic above

What happens when it’s on

In full operation, squarewaves allow maximum transparency and minimum haze, while also allowing a range of smooth gradual dimmed transparencies. When electrical supply is provided, the waveform rearranges the LC molecules according to the users demand, letting light pass through.

What happens when it’s off

When the electrical supply is off, the LC molecules align sporadically and scatter the light, causing the glass surface to appear opaque. With Gauzy’s patened Flex or MultiPlex controller, one can gradually control the amount of light that scatters or passes through, giving maximum flexibility over the glass aperture.
