Optics

Advancing the future of LED lighting

In today’s world, we’re always looking ahead to what’s next. This includes how we develop LED lighting solutions.

When you find yourself asking, “Where do we go from here?,” you may want to consider parting ways with the traditional optical materials of yesterday and making the switch to the silicones of tomorrow. Moldable optical silicone elastomers enable you to find new ways of enhancing the performance, durability and total cost of ownership of your lamp and luminaire designs.
 

Why silicones?

If you’re looking to forge the future of lighting, moldable optical silicone elastomers can help through a number of design-empowering features and benefits.

  • Improved material flexibility and mold replication
  • Reduced manufacturing costs and cycle times in injecting molding and other processes
  • Excellent performance in demanding environments, including high heat, high humidity and ultraviolent (UV) exposure
  • Resistance to scratches, cracks and vibrations
  • Light-weighting
