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.
