The most important part of adopting new technology is properly informing people of what the product is and what it can do for them. Relatively new technologies take time to get a foothold, only because the user needs to gain familiarity with the product. One product rapidly on the rise is a revolutionary replacement of window shades and blinds: a material called smart film. Only millimeters thick, smart film is the new standard of aesthetically pleasing and efficient light transmission technology. It is a completely adaptable technology, meaning it easily installs onto any glass or window in your home or business. Constructed with polymer dispersed liquid crystals (PDLCs), the liquid crystal molecules in this film align/misalign in such a way that renders the film either opaque or completely transparent.

Almost seamlessly, the smart film brings openness to a room in its transparent setting and privacy in its opaque setting, making it the perfect material for office cubicles, medical offices, or glass walls in the home. It eliminates blinds, shades, and window treatments. Smart film is a stylish and environmentally conscious way to shade your house or business. This smart glass is not only beautiful, but it is also energy efficient. Replacing your blinds or shades with smart film can cut your utility costs by as much as 40%. At home, smart film makes rooms flow beautifully by utilizing the openness the glass, then turn private whenever desired.
