Transparent

LED light-guides, lenses and other components often demand stronger or more focused emission of light. In these applications, transparent grades of LEXAN™ resin polycarbonate (PC) deliver high transmission of light plus other high-value performance qualities. Transparent LEXAN LUX resins offer expansive design freedom for LED lighting applications through excellent processability and a broad range of flow profiles. In addition, they offer better impact resistance than glass, as well as flame-retardant options unavailable from competitive plastic materials like PMMA (acrylic).

PERFORMANCE CONSIDERATIONS:

  • High transparency
  • Improved heat aging properties
  • IEC GWFI up to 960°C
  • Non-chlorinated & non-brominated FR systems
  • UL 94 V0 down to 1mm transparent 
  • UL94 5VA down to 3mm transparent/diffuse
  • UL746 RTI rating up to 120°C
  • UL746C f1 rating for LUX_C solutions

POTENTIAL APPLICATIONS:

  • Retrofit transparent LED bulbs
  • LED linear lighting (tubes)
  • Light covers (injection molded, injection stretch blow molding or by extrusion process)
  • Lenses & light guides
