Improved materials for manufacture of LED lighting
Meet PolyOne (Hall 1, Stand B1034) at the Swiss Plastics show in Lucerne, January 24-26. Let's talk and identify ways that our innovative materials can help you improve your manufacturing efficiency and your products' quality.
A leading manufacturer of LED lighting systems successfully replaced metal with a thermally conductive polymer solution from PolyOne in a new, larger model of its innovative range of LED spot lamps.
Replacing metal with PolyOne Therma-Tech™ conductive polymer enables the company to manufacture the lamps more efficiently and with even more innovative designs.
With 32.4W of power, this new addition to the customer's range of LED spot lamps offers significantly more lighting performance than the 9W and 18W models already offered. PolyOne supported the design and production engineers at the customer with thermal simulation and mold filling analysis to help the manufacturer optimize the geometry, heat transfer and manufacturability of the heat sinks.
The Therma-Tech conductive formulation selected for these LED lamps outperforms aluminum, the material traditionally used in heat sinks, with a 25% increase in heat exchange surface area and a 9% reduction in weight.
Major benefits achieved
Better performance (e.g. fluid dynamics, heat-exchange)
More customized solution / access to larger product variety
