"Dow Corning’s broad portfolio of optical silicones for LED packaging and assembly has helped drive breakthrough innovations in more efficient lighting designs, and the demand for these uniquely advanced materials has only grown as the industry seeks to maintain the momentum they have helped build," said Rogier Reinders, marketing director for LED Lighting at Dow Corning. "We are as committed as ever to proactively innovating and collaborating with our worldwide LED lighting customers to help them address today’s emerging design challenges, and to develop ever more efficient, reliable and cost-effective LED lamps and luminaries."

Mr. Reinders is one of the two Dow Corning experts scheduled to speak during the Exhibition’s ThinkTechnology+ThinkMarket forum, held on the Pearl Promenade in Area A opposite Hall 4.1. Also speaking during the forum will be Toshiki Nakata, research and development manager for LED Lighting at Dow Corning. Details of each presentation follow.

• Mr. Reinders’ presentation, scheduled for June 9 from 2:45 to 3:30 p.m., is titled Using Material Science to Illuminate Innovations. It will detail real-life examples of how material science helped LED lighting manufacturers to develop products that are truly novel in design, performance and functionality.

• Mr. Nakata’s presentation, titled A Robust Optical Silicone for LED Encapsulants, is scheduled for June 11 from 10:40 to 11:20 a.m. It will detail how silicone encapsulants offer superior photothermal stability, improved light output and excellent mechanical properties, and describe recent technological advances that further enhance these benefits to meet the ever increasing demands of the LED lighting industry.

Featuring the theme of Illuminating Innovation®, Dow Corning’s booth showcases the company’s broad and growing portfolio of optical silicone solutions, which are fueling innovation along the entire LED value chain. In addition to displaying selections from its high refractive index (RI) optical encapsulants, versatile moldable silicones, thermal management materials and assembly and test solutions, Dow Corning’s booth highlights three products of particular interest to today’s LED lighting industry.

• Dow Corning® OE-8110 Thermally Conductive Die Attach Adhesive: The high thermal conductivity of this one-part, heat curable methyl silicone adhesive is designed to improve the reliability of today’s middle- to high-power PLCC LED packages operating above 0.5 watts.

• Dow Corning® OE-7340 Optical Encapsulant: This two-part, heat curable methyl silicone delivers excellent thermal stability for improved LOP maintenance for high-power chip-on-board (COB) LED packages.

• Dow Corning® EA-3500 Fast Cure Adhesive: This rapidly curing, two-part sealant forms strong bonds quickly to help speed manufacturing and assembly cycle times, increase productivity and yields and lower total cost of ownership for LED lighting.

Dow Corning LED lighting experts are on hand at the company’s booth to discuss the unique design flexibilities, proven reliability and simpler processability enabled by optical silicone technology. A market leader in materials, expertise and collaborative innovation for LED lighting concepts, Dow Corning offers solutions that span the industry’s entire value chain, adding reliability and efficiency for sealing, protecting, adhering, cooling and shaping light across all lighting applications.

Widely regarded as the most influential and comprehensive lighting and LED event in Asia, the Guangzhou International Lighting Exhibition is being held from June 9 to 12, 2016 at the China Import and Export Fair Complex.
