SOLARDIM® PA-LC Film PA-LC film consists of several kinds of polymers and liquid crystal. PA-LC is applied between two ITO films in the liquid state and is cured to rigid state.

FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® Panels Composed of two or more panes of chemical toughened safety glass (bent or plane).

Principle Function of SOLARDIM® PA-LC films
Within the PA-LC film, is a liquid with a high molecular density. Without an electric current, the liquid molecules are orientated randomly and scatter light, so that the surface appears opaque. However when an electric current is applied, the liquid molecules are aligned and, the surface appears transparent.
With the dimmer function of our TIMON® 100 system the transition from opaque to transparent can be individually adjusted.
