It is expected to be used in a wide variety of fields, including constructions such as housing, offices and commercial facility, as well as automobiles and aircraft.



  • Provides globally top level transparency and shielding property, as well as superb infrared ray cutting function.
    → Possesses excellent transparency and shielding property, along with ability to block 70-75% of infrared ray when opaque. (Transparent : 20-25% of infrared rays is cut.)
  • Easy to apply to curved surfaces or glass because it is extremely thin.
    →Ultra thin film of 0.1mm has been made available, can be applied to curved surfaces or glass.
  • Width of 1,500mm has been made possible, can be shipped in roll form.
    →Needs for large sizes are supported with shipped in 1,500mm-width roll form.
  • Realizes lower voltage/lower power consumption.
    →Achieved drive voltage of 20-60V(Normal mode), realizing lower voltage and lower power consumption, compared to other light control films.
  • Makes gradation display possible.
    → By changing the voltage, gradual and progressive display of different gradations between “transparent” and “opaque” is possible.
  • Allows for freedom and creativity in design.
    As it is a film, it can be cut into any shape using scissors or cutters, and slits or holes can also be made easily.
    Wide range of color variation is possible, including black.
  • Can be used as screen or signage by projecting high-definition video.
    →Can be used as screen or signage by projecting images, expected to be used in variety of applications and scenes.
