Can I adjust the level of opacity in Smart Glass and is it completely clear?
Smart Glass works on either an AC or DC current. In the off position the glass is an opaque white, this is the privacy position and is unpowered. When the power is supplied it instantly turns clear. It is designed to be either “on” or “off” at the flip of a switch. In the on position (clear) the glass has a haze of approximately 7%. This is due to scattered light reflection.
Can I get Smart Glass in different colours?
A variety of colours can be incorporated into the Smart Glass process. This is achieved by using a coloured film within the lamination process of the glass. Once a colour has been applied in the lamination process it will be present forever.

How do I clean Smart Glass?
Firstly make sure the power to the glass is in the off position. Smart Glass should be cleaned with a soft damp cloth. Any preparatory non abrasive cleaner can be used, or you can just use soapy water. Do not use excess water and clean all edges of the glass to remove any excess fluid. Do not use any harsh chemicals or use any sharp instruments. It is almost impossible to damage the Smart Glass film as it is laminated between two sheets of glass, but you do not want to leave any excess water near a possible live current.
