Lighting Industry

The Lighting Industry is changing rapidly. Most original light bulbs or tubes are slowly being switched to LED due to their higher energy efficiency and heat reduction. More and more lighting companies are updating their fixture designs to meet new demands in aesthetics and performance.

The variations and possibilities concerning different light levels from “white/blue” to “yellow” as well as light transmission and diffusion ratios are endless. The combination of these three factors as well as the fixture design are crucial to create the perfect lighting for interior and exterior installations.

Acrylic and polycarbonate come in a variety of grades, colors, shades and textures to work for nearly any lighting project and we are here to help with material specification and design.

Furthermore, plastic engineers are developing new thermoplastics with heat dissipative properties which reduce the carbon footprint in the manufacturing process, as well as the weight of the final fixture. Download PDF Brochure
