This characteristic means that the appearance of Lumisty changes from transparent to translucent depending on the angle from which it is viewed. Made from mylar, an extraordinarily strong polyester film, Lumisty’s unique effect is the result of its micro structure.
Lumisty appears clear or frosted depending on your viewing angle and comes in 3 types:
Frosted when viewed straight-on, clear when viewed from either side.
Clear when viewed straight-on, frosted when viewed from one side.
Clear when viewed straight-on, frosted when viewed from either side.
Lumisty can be used horizontally or vertically. Applications include interior glass, acrylic and polycarbonate surfaces, glass balustrades, escalators and staircases, windows, glazedpartitions, workstation screens, modesty panels, store fronts, exhibitions and computer /ATM screens.
If you’ve seen Lumisty in action you’ve experienced the unexpected and delightful visual sensation it creates. Uponfirst encountering the product people are often struck by what they think is an optical illusion.
Walking past a window with Lumisty applied, a perfectly clear, transparent surface becomes, in a step or two, partially frosted. Two or three steps later, the same window is completely frosted. Walk backward or forward and its clear again. As the viewer’s angle shifts, so does the transparency or translucency of the film.
Words just can’t do it justice.
