At PennWell Corporation’s Strategies in Light Europe 2013, Dow Corning will launch an new moldable optical silicone technology, deliver a presentation called “How Silicone Enables the Next Generation of Secondary Optics for LED Lighting,” and exhibit its portfolio of LED silicone optics.
Strategies in Light Europe 2013 will be held at the M.O.C. Event Centre in Munich.
The new moldable optical material is Dow Corning’s latest addition to its family of optical-grade silicones for LED lamp and luminaire applications. According to the company, the material significantly increases LED light output, improves overall energy efficiency, and extends device life and reliability.
The Dow Corning presentation will be delivered by Hugo da Silva, global industry director, LED Lighting at Dow Corning. It will focus on the use of optical-grade silicones as next-generation solutions to help meet the LED industry’s increasing need for products that overcome the challenges and limitations of traditional optical materials. It will also discuss how advances in silicone chemistry and processing give LED designers and original-equipment manufacturers (OEMs) greater freedoms to explore new systems and applications and enable more advanced light and luminaire designs.
The presentation will be given on Thursday, Nov. 21 from 11:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. in Room K1 at the M.O.C. Event Centre, session number TTS4P3. Dow Corning’s moldable optical-grade material, along with the company’ portfolio of LED lamp and luminaire solutions, can be seen at Booth B25.
