The global LED lighting market has expanded rapidly over the last decade, with businesses and consumers making the switch to a more energy-efficient illumination option. LEDs are reliable and robust, offering lower power consumption, high brightness, and a wide range of shape and size options. Some LED lighting applications are exposed to harsh environmental conditions like moisture, heat, and damaging contaminants. These types of components have special requirements for high ingress protection, which call for specific adhesive properties.

While adhesive solutions like conformal coatings and molded lenses are available, optical encapsulants provide the highest degree of protection and easy of use in harsh environments. This technology is particularly suited for explosion proof or high IP rated luminaires. Manufacturers can choose from epoxy, urethane, and silicone formulations based on their unique application needs.
