Diffuse lighting with LED strips / modules

What happens when you need to use low cost efficient LED strips, but the lighting effect is too rigid or raw?

The situation now with waterproof LED strips is the colour consistency, durability of the strips changes over time. It may crack, turn yellow, thus affecting the LED light output.

Generally, the market uses Epoxy resin due to cost advantages. But, it has the above problems. We normally use silicon covers to eliminate the above problem with the strips. This cost about S$1.00- S$2.00 more per meter.


As we progress deeper in our lighting consultancy, we found a POLYURETHANE RESIN material that may assist to value add client's project further.

This material UR5634 and UR5635 can be clear or hazy respectively. They are RoHS-2 compliant and resistant to weather, UV light, acids, alkalis, water and mould. It may well be the next waterproofing solution for outdoor lightings and equipments. Finally, its additional value comes from using it to achieve a desired diffuse lighting effect.

We'll try to test and see if something fruitful may appear to better benefit our clients in the near future!
