privacy with dimming function

SOLARDIM® is a compound security glass made of FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® that creates privacy with a dimming function. SOLARDIM® is available as flat and bent glass.

SOLARDIM® allows the transparency of a window to be adjusted to the most convenient state. Using the dimmer switch, fingertip control of the atmosphere within your compartment or cabin, is achieved without the need for curtains or blinds. In it’s opaque mode, the window could also be used as a hi-resolution display screen. Using a projector, you can enjoy the visuals of TV, Video, DVD, PC.

SOLARDIM® uses a magic screen film technology, sandwiched between two layers of FORMGLAS SPEZIAL®.

Standard size of SOLARDIM® Magic Screen Films: Min. 210 x 297 mm, Max. 980 x 2510 mm

Colours: The film has the standard color cream. SOLARDIM® is available in the following glass colors: gray, green, bronze, blue - from light to dark

UV protection: 98 % of harmful UV from sunlight

Light transmittance: ON: 75% +/- 5%, OFF: 20% +/- 0,5 %

Display Screen: Both front and back side can be used as high-resolution projection screen. Depending on the installation location, the projection is done on the front or back side. However, the best effect can be achieved in the rearward mode.

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: SOLARDIM® consist of two or more panes of chemical toughened safety glass (bent or plane).

Main function of SOLARDIM® PA-LC films: Within the PA-LC film there 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.
