SmartGels® by Nye Lubricants, serve as encapsulants for high-brightness LEDs and are designed to increase lumen output, extend lumen life and survive demanding operating conditions. Unlike optical epoxies, SmartGels provide a pliable connection between rigid parts, without inducing excessive stresses or delamination and are crystal clear throughout the visible wavelength. They're manufactured, filtered, and deaerated in a clean room environment to ensure they are free from light-absorbing microscopic particulates.
SmartGels® are "e;taught"e; how to work in your LEDs and adapt to your production environment. The refractive index of the gel is matched to the refractive index of your lens. The cured consistency is matched to your specs, from gelatin-like with self-healing characteristics to hard silicone rubber.
SmartGels can also be formulated to resist water, ionizing radiation, reactive chemicals, yellowing at soldering temperatures and more. And every SmartGel is designed for reliability and long service life.
