privacy with dimmer function Plane and Bent Glass Panels
SOLARDIM® allows the transparency of a window to be adjusted to the most convenient state. Using the dimmer switch, fingertip control of the atmosphere within your compartment or cabin, is achieved without the need for curtains or blinds. In its opaque mode, the window could also be used as a hi-resolution display screen. Using a projector, you can enjoy the visuals of TV, Video, DVD, PC.
SOLARDIM® uses a magic screen film technology, sandwiched between two layers of FORMGLAS SPEZIAL®.
Standard size of SOLARDIM® Magic Screen Films
Min. 210 x 297 mm, Max. 980 x 2510 mm
Glass Colours and Films Film: standard Colours: Cream Glass Panes: grey, green, bronze, blue - from light to dark
UV Protection: 98 % of harmful UV from sunlight Light transmittance:: ON: 75% +/- 5%, OFF: 20% +/- 0,5 %
Display Screen: Both front and rear sides can be used as hiresolution projection screen. Depending on the installation location, the projection is reflected on both front or rear of the screen. Specifically, the best effect will be obtained in the rear mode.
SOLARDIM® PA-LC Film PA-LC film consists of several kinds of polymers and liquid crystal. PA-LC is applied between two ITO films in the liquid state and is cured to rigid state.
FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® Panels Composed of two or more panes of chemical toughened safety glass (bent or plane).
Principle Function of SOLARDIM® PA-LC films Within the PA-LC film, is a liquid with a high molecular density. Without an electric current, the liquid molecules are orientated randomly and scatter light, so that the surface appears opaque. However when an electric current is applied, the liquid molecules are aligned and, the surface appears transparent. With the dimmer function of our TIMON® 100 system the transition from opaque to transparent can be individually adjusted.
FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® is a compound security glass made out of two or more chemically tempered panes bonded with our special resin. With this resin and our modern manufacturing process we achieve highest optical quality and an outstanding breaking strength, often leading to reduction in the glass thickness.
Thus FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® offers all advantages in one product: it keeps its shape even in case of damage of one or more panes due to its compound and at the same time offers the best optical clarity compared to thermally tempered glass.
FORMGLAS SPEZIAL® is made as both plane and bent glass to the customer's precise requirements. Due to the size of the chemical bath the maximum size of the panes is limited to 2m x 3m.
We can produce the panes either to your templates or 3D models or we take 3D measurements on board. The final glazing is installed by our own certified employees meeting the yacht standard requirements.
We use our own specially developed resin TFG for the adhesive bonding of each ply. Only this resin achieves the quality our customers require.
