PDLC technology that creates privacy and transparency in Polyvision® is designed to work over its lifetime. This article explores the top ten reasons why Polyvision® switchable privacy glass may fail to operate correctly.
Polyvision® is a PDLC technology that lets you control your privacy.
PDLC stands for “polymer dispersed liquid crystal” and it is a smart glass, switchable privacy glass that uses nanotechnology to create a dynamic window.
How to use Polyvision®
When you need privacy, all you need to do is apply a charge to the glass and it will become transparent. To turn the glass back to opaque creating privacy, simply turn off the charge. Polyvision® is easy to install and has several applications, including use in automobiles as an alternative to tinted windows.

You might be looking to keep your glass opaque for one of the following reasons:
- When you want to keep light in but prying eyes out.
- When you need to keep the room temperature down.
- When you want to have a private conversation.

The earliest glass artifacts were found in Egypt around 3500 BC, but it was not until four millenniums later that glass was used in making windows. However, the windows used were underdeveloped, ridiculously thick and roughly impossible to see through. Transparent glass, like we see today, was not invented until a millennia later.
