New LED materials products which are taking this industry by storm include:

- PU22985 NEW!! - a 2-part water clear potting polyurethane which cures to form a tough 85 Shore A material with good abrasion and hydrolysis resistance and thermal conductivity of 0.3 W/mK.

- MG 8322 NEW!! - a clear potting epoxy which provides a tough resilient finish to environmental ingress.

- TIM 202331 Tape NEW!! - a white, heat transfer tape for bonding heat sinks to LED strips and units. Thermal conductivity 2W/mK. (Other tapes available with up to 3W/mK.)

Techsil's extensive range also includes the following products, which have been tried and tested industry wide:

- RTV27844 - a crystal clear, low viscosity, 2-part silicone which cures at room temperature to a high strength rubber.

- RTV1084G - a 1-part grey silicone with high thermal conductivity of 2.3 W/mK which cures to a tough but pliable rubber.

- TIM11021 G - a 1-part, grey, non-setting, silicone paste with thermal conductivity of 2.1 W/mK
