Dow Corning Further Challenges the Boundaries of LED Design with Launch of Three Advanced New Moldable Silicone Products

Dow Corning, a wholly owned subsidiary of The Dow Chemical Company and a global leader in silicones, silicon-based technology and innovation, unveiled at LIGHTFAIR International 2017 (Booth #2557) a significant expansion to its industry-leading portfolio of LED solutions with the launch of three new high-performance products under the Dow Corning® label: MS-4002, MS-4022 and MS-4007 Moldable Optical Silicones. Offering enhanced optical, mechanical and processing properties, these three new products further broaden design freedoms for secondary lenses and optical elements used in high-brightness LED lamps and luminaires.
 
Individually, each of the new Moldable Optical Silicone products offers a unique combination of viscosity, hardness, surface tack and optical performance to provide maximum design flexibility. As a group, they share cure speeds optimized for injection molding processes, and higher elongation to allow easy demolding of complicated parts, such as lens clusters with varying wall thicknesses or free form lenses with negative draft angles. 
 
After full cure, the new products enable plastic-like, smooth optics with comparatively high hardness and low surface friction. Combining high transmittance with low dispersion, they also help to further enhance the lumen efficiency of LED lamps and luminaires with relatively long light paths. Like all of Dow Corning’s Moldable Optical Silicone products, their high thermal stability and UV resistance helps to ensure their excellent clarity will not fade – even upon exposure to high temperature and/or outdoor lighting conditions.
 
“As LED technology continues to evolve and the lighting market grows ever more competitive, Dow Corning is working closely with industry leaders to help them proactively anticipate challenges and develop higher performing and differentiated designs,” said Rogier Reinders, global marketing director for Advanced Assembly Solutions at Dow Corning. “The three latest additions to our award-winning Moldable Optical Silicone family build on this tradition of collaborative innovation to push performance boundaries – not only for our own growing portfolio of LED solutions, but for the next-generation LED lamps and luminaires that our customers worldwide are developing today.”
 
A market leader in materials, technical knowledge, and collaborative innovation for LED lighting concepts, Dow Corning offers solutions that span the entire LED value chain, adding reliability and efficiency to shaping light and to sealing, protecting, adhering, and cooling lamps and luminaires across all lighting applications.
