Specialty molding compounds for efficient lighting engineering applications in combination with LEDs. There is a choice of products either for edge lighting with maximum transmission or for backlighting to eliminate disturbing hot spots.
For Edge Lighting
Components made from the molding compounds of the LD range appear clear and transparent when unlit. These PMMA molding compounds have been optimized for edge lighting and for guiding light across differently sized areas. No additional diffusion films or microstructures are required on the component surface in order to achieve uniform light output over the entire surface.
Molding compound colors developed for uniform light distribution when backlit with strong LED light. Combined with high transmission, the products eliminate disturbing hotspots (spots of light). These properties make it possible to reduce the spacing required between the cover and the LED light source, and to optimize the wall thickness of the component.
