Dow Corning, a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, is offering an exclusive look at Dow Corning® CI-2001 White Reflective Coating for LED lighting applicationsat Light+Building 2014 (Booth A51, Hall 4.0).In the final stages of development, this highly reflective whitesilicone coating is designed to spray easily onto almost any surface to form a tough layer with internalhigh reflectivity.
The technology targets greater design flexibility vs. competitive materialsallowing more sophisticated shapes and materials to be used in advancedLED modules and reflectors.
“Improving processing, performance and reliability are critical to maximizing the competitiveness and widespread adoption of LED lighting,” said Hugo da Silva, global industry director for LED Lightingat Dow Corning. “The development of CI-2001 Coatingreinforces Dow Corning’s commitment to broaden our portfolio of white reflective solutions for secondary optics applications. This cutting-edge innovation expands on our launch ofDow Corning® MS-2002 White Reflective Moldable Silicone late last year, by promising a new coatingoption with a versatile combination of processability, structural strength, and high reflectivity for more efficient, reliable and ultimately more competitive LED lamp and luminaire designs.”
Like other industry-leading products in Dow Corning’s family of high-end optical silicones, CI-2001 Coating is formulated to deliver outstandingmechanical, thermal and optical stability at elevated temperatures, where conventional organic materials, such as epoxies and plastics, often yellow and turn brittle. This allows lamp and luminaire components fabricated or coated with the material to maintain high reflectivity as well as consistent color and structural performance over the lifetime of an LED luminaire.
Dow CorningCI-2001Reflective Coating, as well as other innovative products from Dow Corning’s expanding portfolio of solutions for LED lamps and luminaires, are being featured here at Light+Building 2014 at the company’s booth.
Light+Building isthe world’s leading trade fair for architecture, lighting and technology. The event is held from March 30 to April 4, 2014 at the Frankfurt Fair and Exhibition Centre.
