Makrolon® polycarbonate sheets for LED applications - The Way of Light.
New lighting technology has transformed the world of lighting fixtures. The popularity of LED-based applications opens up many exciting design possibilities. But LED light sources may present challenges when it comes to hot spots and light intensity fluctuations. Also higher purchasing cost of LEDs emphasizes the significance of higher fixture efficiency - one of two main commercial arguments - next to durability - which come down heavily in favor of LEDs.
Fortunately, Covestro has transformed the world of lighting materials with Makrolon® polycarbonate sheets. Makrolon® has an impressive history of success in medical, automotive, data storage and construction applications. For today's LED lighting, Makrolon® sheets provide the ideal combination of design freedom and efficiency. They are durable and enable you to maximise your lighting fixture's aesthetics, light effects and its energy efficiency over a long period of time.
Our LED sheet range can be used for light guiding, light reflection and light shaping/ de-glaring.
