Makrolon® LED guides the way for edge lighting luminaires
LEDs are the go-to option for energy-efficient lighting, but they still have a lot of untapped potential.
Together with our industry partners we cover all competencies that are necessary to develop an edge lighting luminaire from the idea phase to serial production.
We’re excited to showcase 3D edge lighting concepts that combine microstructured light guides with our optically pure Makrolon® LED polycarbonate.
The polycarbonate developed by Covestro – combined with innovative approaches regarding tool and mold manufacturing – offers completely new design possibilities for free formed, microstructured optical light guides in technical luminaires and ambient lighting applications
Why Makrolon® LED polycarbonate was the right solution for light guides
- High transparency: Allows for enhanced light output in lighting applications.
- Dimensionally stable: Retains its shape when exposed to heat or humidity.
- Design friendly: Injection molding gives designers the freedom to implement complex shapes.
- Precise microstructure replication: Precise casting of microstructures during injection molding to secure optical function.
