High light-reflection factor under high temperature surroundings Announcing the release of the thermosetting plastic molding-materials “Full Bright ™(*1)” used for LED reflectors

(*1) “Full Bright” is Panasonic company' s trademark.

February 27, 2012, Osaka, Japan–Industrial Devices Company, Panasonic Corporation has developed the thermosetting plastic molding-materials “Full Bright ™” used for white-color LED reflectors, which features excellent light-reflection factor under high temperature surroundings. We can provide unsaturated polyester molding compounds “CE 6000” and epoxy molding compounds “CV 1800”

With the increasing application of LEDs, that is to say, back-light of liquid-display TVs, general lightings, in-vehicle head-lamps, brake lamps, LEDs have been required to be higher brightened as well as higher powered. As the heating value is increased, thermosetting-resin materials used for LED reflector have been required to have excellent heat-resistance properties and to be hardly-discolored by high temperature in the market. To meet the market demand, Industrial Devices Company, Panasonic Corporation has succeeded in developing the thermosetting plastic molding-materials “Full Bright” used for LED reflectors.

Features

  • Excellent light-reflection factor for many hours under high temperature surroundings
    Unsaturated polyester molding compounds “CE6000” ( LED output power : from 0.5 W to 2.0 W )
    - Light-reflection factor : 95 % initial time (room temperature ) ⇒ more than 75 % 150 ℃ × 1000 hours later
    - Molding method : injection molding
    Epoxy molding compounds “CV 1800” ( LED output power : from 0.5 W to 3.0 W )
    - Light-reflection factor : 95 % initial time (room temperature ) ⇒ more than 80 % 150 ℃ × 1000 hours later
    - Molding method : transfer molding

Applications

LED lightings, LED back-light of TVs or notebook PCs etc.
