Secondary Optics for LED Lighting
Optics are one of the most important components of a lighting system. Design, efficiency and reliability can all be defined by the optical system. The properties of silicone can enhance optics for many applications, including:
- Automotive lighting
- Professional lighting
- Consumer lighting
- Medical devices
- Consumer products
Optics made with our silicones can mold into complex shapes, thicker and bigger parts and undercuts, enabling applications to support, among others, human-centric lighting. To inspire these next-generation breakthroughs, we are equipped to work closely with you early in the design phase, connecting you to our network of molding and optical experts to help you develop the best solutions.
Learn More About Our Key Products for Next-Generation Optics:
Optical moldable materials – Deliver good UV resistance, minimize yellowing, resist scratching, mix easily with additives, mold into complex shapes, reduce cycle times and system costs, manage increasingly high temperatures.
White reflective materials – Enable high reflection, allow systems to run at high temperatures without compromising efficiency, and add flexibility with moldable materials.
Here are just some of the ways you can use our optical moldable materials in your application:
- Transparent lenses/total internal reflection (TIR) optics – Highly transparent moldable silicones in different hardness ranges with excellent resistance to heat and lumen intensity
- Light diffusers – Silicone's flexible properties can help maintain efficiency and diffuse light by balancing high temperature, UV resistance, and high lumen density, with detailed surface finishing in the mold
- Light guides/light pipes – Silicone properties can allow higher efficiency guides, variety of thickness and flexibility
Protection and Assembly
Dow Consumer Solutions materials address the key performance issues that challenge lamp and luminaire design.
