REXI smart glass is a new type of special photoelectric glass product with a sandwich structure in which the TFT liquid crystal film is compounded into the middle of two layers of glass and is integrally molded by high temperature and high pressure. The user controls the transparent and opaque state of the glass by controlling the on and off of the electric current.
China factory’s product not only has the characteristics of all safety glass, but also has the privacy protection function of controlling the transparency of the glass. Due to the characteristics of the liquid crystal film sandwich, it can also be used as a projection screen, instead of a common curtain, an HD picture is presented on the glass. When it is turned off, the liquid crystal molecules in the electrically-controlled glass will be in an irregular distribution state. At this time, the glass presents a translucent and opaque appearance; when the dimming glass is energized, the molecules inside the liquid crystal are arranged neatly and the light can penetrate freely. At this moment, it instantly shows a transparent state.
It was invented and applied for invention patents by researchers at Kent State University in the United States in the late 1980s and began to be brought to the domestic market in 2003 by China smart glass suppliers.
Due to the high price and low awareness, the development has been slow in the past decade. In recent years, with the continued rapid growth of the national economy, the building materials market has been developing rapidly. Since the effort of China smart glass manufacturers, the cost of it has dropped a lot , it has gradually been accepted by the construction and design industry and started to be used on a large scale, with the cost further decreasing. It is believed that this practical high-tech product will enter millions of households in the near future.
