LED is the latest innovation in lighting. Not only do LED light strips offer superior lighting compared to standard incandescent bulbs, they also:
- Provide lighting for 50x longer than a standard bulb
- Require only a fraction of energy a standard bulb needs to function
- Are eco-friendly
- Change colors
- Offer adjustable brightness
Despite all of these benefits, LED lighting is vulnerable. Two failures impacting LED bulbs are 1) solder joint fatigue and 2) board-level corrosion. To prevent these issues from affecting your LED light tubes, incorporate LED encapsulants and potting compounds.
Epoxies and polyurethane formulations made by Epic Resins will cover and protect energy-efficient lighting so you’ll receive all the benefits without any complications. Potting compounds provide the resistance necessary to keep solder joints from weakening or breaking off. Our potting compounds also protect against thermal shock and vibration.
Epic Resins produces flame retardant epoxies and polyurethanes for use in lighting applications. In addition, our fire-resistant compounds are recognized by Underwriters Laboratories providing you with safety certifications and peace of mind.
LED encapsulation prevents moisture and foreign substances from making contact with sensitive electronic components. Optically clear polymers provide this line of defense while being specifically tailored to LED light technology. When encapsulated, board-level corrosion won’t be a concern. All types of LED lighting benefit from encapsulation and potting compounds including:
- LED T8 tube lights
- LED light strips
- LED puck lights
- LED versa bar
If you’re an LED lights manufacturer or dealer, Epic Resins has the epoxies and polyurethanes you need to maximize your product’s efficiency. Don’t let moisture or solder fatigue get the best of your LED lighting design. Protect your LED product with Epic Resins.
