As the lighting industry continues to evolve and grow, traditional materials are no longer compatible with today’s lighting demands. Manufacturers search for new lighting assembly technologies that are innovative, reliable, and more efficient. These materials must be able to sustain their physical and electrical properties over a wide range of temperatures, humidity, and harsh environmental conditions.
Not only are the materials used in the assembly of LED lighting devices important, but so are the materials used to protect the LED to ensure long life. Thermal management has become an important component in the reliability, quality output, life-time, and total cost of these devices. Encapsulants, sealants, and conformal coatings are also used to protect against thermal stress, physical stress, humidity, and other contaminants.
