Dow Corning to Exhibit Silicone-based Materials at Light + Building

Published on 2012-04-09. Author : SpecialChem

The increased heat of LED lighting causes products made with traditional materials to yellow with age, producing less light and even changing color temperature. In addition, LED lighting products generate heat at the components area, declining longevity of the light and preventing many LED lighting products to deliver on their claim of long lasting, efficient light.

Silicon-based materials can help solve these issues, offering benefits across the entire lighting value chain thanks to its thermal stability, transparency, photo stability, enhanced light output efficiency, easy processability, lower cost of ownership, enhanced protection and enhanced reliability and lifetime. These features allow to completely rethink how lamps and luminaires are designed, and to create revolutionary new lighting designs.

Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones and silicon-based technology, provides silicon-based solutions for the entire lighting value chain, adding reliability and efficiency for sealing, protecting, adhering, cooling, and shaping light across all lighting applications.
