Polyvision Smart Control System
As technology expands, so does the desire to integrate it into our daily lives and use it to make things simpler and more convenient. In anticipation of the trend toward smart life innovations, Polytronix, Inc. is introducing smart control technology and preparing to release our latest product. The Smart Control System will be released and on display at the AIA show at GlassBuild 2020 in September.
Scientifically speaking, innovation glass, or smart glass, can change from opaque to clear when voltage is passed through it. When an electrical current is applied across the film, the color and transparency will change. Our film transforms when voltage is applied, and the liquid crystal modules line up to turn the film from opaque to clear in just 80 milliseconds!
