Aug. 8, 2007
Date Announced: 08 Aug 2007 NuSil Technology Introduces UV-, Temperature-Resistant Silicone Gel for LED EncapsulationCarpinteria, California - NuSil Technology - a cutting-edge manufacturer of silicone-based materials for healthcare, aerospace, electronics and photonics - announces the addition of the developmental product, GEL-9617-30, to its Lightspan line of materials for the photonics industry.GEL-9617-30 resists optical degradation when exposed to UV or extreme temperatures. Designed as a protective encapsulant for LED or other photonic applications, this gel has a high refractive index of 1.54, which maximizes optical device efficiency. GEL-9617-30 also serves as an effective medium for phosphor incorporation. The formulation is designed to cure at room temperature but can be rapidly cured with heat to address issues of substrate and lens delamination."GEL-9617-30 represents our latest encapsulant development under the Lightspan brand," said Brian Nash, vice president of Marketing and Sales. "This product demonstrates superior transmittance after exposure to UV and extensive high temperatures."NuSil's GEL-9617-30 is available in 50-milliliter, side-by-side kits for evaluation purposes.
