Optical Materials for LED Lighting
Bring light to any design
Silicone-based technologies to enhance LED lighting
Moldable optical silicones deliver a high level of design freedom in challenging applications such as automotive, general, professional and consumer lighting and outdoor displays. They deliver:
Long-term performance of lighting designs beyond the capability of traditional optical materials like PC and PMMA.
Excellent optical properties, and more resistant to impact damage and degradation from UV, heat and environmental extremes.
Higher lumen density stability over time.
More complex designs
Often while simplifying the manufacturing process and reduce costs.
Secondary optical encapsulants and coatings are transparent materials to dispense into LED assemblies such as architectural and landscape lighting, light bars and strips. They deliver:
Reliable, long-lasting protection of sensitive LED electronics in environments containing moisture.
Higher photothermal stability vs. epoxies and other organic solutions, which supports the industry trend toward brighter, hotter LED lighting designs.
Rapid and versatile cure processing controlled by temperature.
