Transforming a normal glass pane from transparent to opaque in a few thousandths of a second is possible thanks to LCD glass. This type of surface, which also guarantees the reverse process, represents a cutting-edge product that combines practicality with aesthetics. Veneto Vetro produces LCD glass guaranteeing a reliable and quality product thanks to the different processes to which it is subject. Inside the glass, which is stratified, there is a liquid crystal film that, precisely because it is inserted into the glass, manages to change its appearance in a few moments. The transparent film that is placed inside the glass is coated with a conductive material that encloses the liquid crystals dispersed in a solid polymer matrix between the surfaces.
In the absence of voltage (in OFF mode) the crystals are dispersed and this is enough to create an effect of immediate opacity. On the contrary, in the presence of voltage (in ON mode) the crystals are aligned and the glass becomes transparent ensuring a complete view. The technologies we use for glass processing enable our customers to choose LCD glass to go in a few thousandths of a second from a totally opaque surface to an absolutely transparent glass and vice versa. All that is made possible thanks to the use of a simple remote control or by pressing a switch that will create the desired effect.
The LCD glass can be used in different environments, including:
- Private homes
- Meeting rooms
- Spas and Wellness Centers
This particular type of product aims at providing a privacy effect in the moment in which it is desired and can also be used to control the brightness within an environment. The treatments to which the glass is submitted during the processing phase make it resistant to impact and breakage. Being a stratified glass, in case of damage it is able to hold the fragments for a certain amount of time, thus avoiding accidents.
Among other advantages of the application of LCD glasses, in addition to brightness control there is the noise decrease. The thickness of the sheets guarantees the creation of an environment that is insulated from disturbing noises. Finally, LCD glass, for their ability to switch from transparent to opaque, are ideal as projection walls.
