Discover Dow Corning’s Innovative and High-performance Silicon-based Solutions for LED Lighting at Strategies in Light® Europe

LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes) possess significant advantages over traditional lamps and have the potential for a more sustainable, energy efficient lighting solution. Though LED manufacturers must still overcome significant barriers to ensure widespread market adoption, most significantly:

– Initial purchase costs
– Luminous efficiency

Materials development and improvements are instrumental in driving overall cost of ownership down and improving performance to aid in general market adoption.

Use of LEDs in lamps and luminaires frequently requires materials that are:

– Optically transparent and able to withstand intense light sources
– Thermally stable and able to withstand elevated operating temperatures
– White and able to reflect light without excessive losses
– Protective of sensitive electronic components

Silicon-based materials are ideally suited to meet the needs of the LED industry as they provide high adhesion, high purity, moisture resistance, thermal stability and retain optical clarity at elevated temperatures relative to organic materials.

Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones and silicon-based technology, provides innovative, high-performance silicon-based materials for the next generation of lighting. Solutions span the entire value chain, adding reliability and efficiency for sealing, protecting, adhering, cooling, and controlling light across all lighting applications.

Dow Corning Lighting experts will be available at Strategies in Light® Europe for media briefings.
