Electroconductive polyester film with embedded electronic devices
Sun-Tec’s electroconductive transparent films contain small mounted electronic devices like LEDs and infrared sensors. Powered by voltages between 12 and 48 VDC, these 125-micron-thick films act as printed circuit boards and may be produced up to 137 3/4 by 49 1/4 inches (350 by 125 centimeters) in single sheets. Applications include windows, floor plates, stairs, tables, and other uses for transparent, illuminated surfaces.
Sun-Tec films may be laminated between glass sheets using UV-curing resin or with vacuum or autoclaving techniques, as temperatures do not exceed 257°F (125°C). The material may also be laminated between polycarbonate or acrylic plates using UV-curing resin or vacuum processes. Sun-Tec films are currently being tested in three-dimensional bent-glass roofs for automotive applications.
