Light Emitting Diode (LED) Potting Applications and LED Encapsulants
Epoxy Resin and Polyurethane Compounds for Peerless LED Encapsulation
The demand for LED encapsulants is expected to double in the next few years. Forbes anticipates market share growth from 18% to 70% by 2020. Packaged LED lighting will dominate the demand. Epic Resins specializes in quality LED encapsulation for any industry or application.
Our epoxy and resin formulations insulate fragile wire bonds from moisture, thermal shock, vibration, and other potentially damaging conditions. Liquid epoxy is poured into the LED chamber and bracketed to the desired shape. Our high-efficiency ovens then cure the mold. Epic Resins epoxy manufacturing process has exceeded industry expectations in quality, cost and dependability.
Epic Resins adopts unsurpassed LED encapsulation technologies. We have for decades. One component of our quality is the exemplary technical training of our epoxy and polyurethane specialists. Our specialists ensure your epoxy or polyurethane compound lasts as long as the LED light itself with meticulous formulation for exceptional results. Epic Resins is your answer for cost-effective, reliable LED encapsulation.
LED Encapsulation Improves Applications in Innumerable Industries
Epic Resins LED potting formulations are dynamic. We engineer epoxy and polyurethane solutions varied in hardness, pot life, thermal integrity, temperature tolerance, viscosity and more. If you need LED encapsulation Epic Resins can do it. We’ve devised polyurethane potting compounds for automotive lights, LED signs and LED embedded indicators. The scrupulous chemical engineers at Epic Resins frequently combine polyurethane compounds to prevent mechanical failure and moisture damage, extending the life of the LED. Epoxy LED encapsulation is also common but for extreme thermal resistance.
Other common LED encapsulation applications include:
- Advertising banners
- Aviation and airplane lighting
- Home and business lighting
- Theater lighting
- Architectural lighting
For applications requiring heat transfer, Epic Resins’ epoxy LED potting compounds are engineered for thermal conductivity. They prevent moisture and contamination across a broad temperature range. Regardless of your thermal conductivity or moisture prevention needs, the potting specialists at Epic Resis will help you choose optimal materials for your LED encapsulation.
Solid-State Lighting is the luminating technology of the future, but tests indicate that SSL technology can be unreliable. Epic Resins has conducted Hammer testing and determined numerous ways improve SSL integrity with better driver design. Selection of appropriate compound is imperative in controlling two common SSL failures: board-level corrosion and solder joint fatigue in the driver circuit.
