In physics, opacity is a measure of the light impermeability (turbidity) of translucent materials and layers. The opacity is defined as “optical density”.

Curtains for stages, cinemas, photo and film studios or even in interior design must of course be opaque to ensure a reliable light exclusion. But opaque fabrics are also used for wall curtains, display systems, banners, roll-ups or in trade fair, shop construction and POS.
