May 20, 2018

BenQ Materials, a leading optical component and materials manufacturer, introduces PNLC (Polymer Network Liquid Crystal) at Display Week 2018.  PNLC is a reverse type comparing to traditional PDLC (Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal).

BenQ Materials PNLC Film is a world-leading breakthrough.  It can see through when power is turned off, and when power is turned on, it turns out to be opaque which enables privacy.  This unique design will increase its diverse applications for lifestyle, home-deco, industry and automobile.  Better yet, it saves 50% of power, compared to PDLC applications.

The BenQ Materials PNLC Film particularly aims for smart automotive applications such as energy-saving sunlight shading. Its reverse-mode liquid crystal could allow automobiles to operate in safe mode while emergency power-off occurs. The innovative PNLC product is the first of the world in film form, with rollable capability, which increases its applicative possibilities in versatile circumstance. Last, but not the least, the film also enables back-projected image display which also enriches its future applications and can be potentially used beyond present-day imagination.

By showcasing the innovative PNLC Film, BenQ Materials is open to further collaboration in different fields and applications.
