1. What kind of technology is this? Is it similar to LCT TV?The technology used by this glass is called PDLC (polymer dispersed liquid crystal) it is similar to a “pixel” of the LCD TV. With no electric voltage applied, liquid crystals are randomly dispersed resulting in the translucent “hazy” state. When electric voltage applied to the electrodes, the electric field causes the liquid crystals to align transparent state.
  2. Why does it look a bit hazy at a certain angle when it is at the transparent state?The viewing angle of PDLC should be more than 120∘under normal lighting.  An increase in haziness could be the results from incident light (e.g. side light) which encounter a higher refractive index in the liquid crystal and causes off-axis haze.
  3. Can I install I-CON Glass in the bathroom / bathtub area and would it potentially cause any shock hazard?
    Yes, absolutely. I-CON Glass would NOT cause any shock hazard since it is compiling with the FELV (Functional Extra Low Voltage) requirement of IEC 60364-7-701 (Ed 2.0).
  4. I-CON Glass requires a power supply, would it consumes a lot of energy / electricity?
    No, with our special designed power supply, it will only consume 4W / m2.
  5. Can I-CON Glass work as a curtain wall / façade which is similar to a solar shade that help energy-saving for air-conditioning?
    Yes, both our I-CON Glass and I-CON Glass IG (Insulated Glass structure) can block UV > 98% which significantly reduce the heat from sun.
  6. Is I-CON Glass impact proof?
    Yes, I-CON glass has been tested it is impact proof.
  7. Will you offer any warranty or guarantee working life for the product?
    Yes, we offer 1 year warranty after installation and can also join our extended warranty program at your own interest.
  8. Would I-CON Glass function in some EMI intense area such as computer server room?
    Yes, I-CON Glass will function normally under EMI intense condition.
  9. Would this technology works on a curvature glass or glass with holes for handle?
    Yes, I-CON Glass can be done in curvature and with holes for handle, but it is not recommend since the overall viewing angle will not be at optimal level for a curved glass.
