Lighting Conditions and Haze in Regular and PDLC Glass

As previously noted, one of the most common misconceptions relates to clarity of the PDLC technology because of customers’ preexisting expectation that the optical clarity will be the same as with regular float glass. That level of clarity is not possible with PDLC products, however, as they contain liquid crystal materials that optically manipulate light; therefore, glass products with PDLC technology naturally have some level of haziness to them (even regular glass has some haze, albeit at much more extreme lighting conditions). This haziness effect with PDLC glass products is magnified at larger viewing angles and with certain high-intensity lighting conditions. This, however, does not detract from its wide-ranging use as a practical alternative.
