Panasonic developed a light diffusion type polypropylene (PP) resin molding compounds for LEDs. This material will contribute to improve customer's design flexibility with simple processing into complex shapes.
Osaka, Japan - Panasonic Corporation today announced that it has developed a light diffusion type polypropylene (PP) resin molding compounds, called "FULL BRIGHT"*1 PP, which can extend the operating life of LEDs. Mass-production of this new material, which is lightweight and provides higher brightness of LED lighting, will begin in April 2016. The industry's first*2 introduction of a material applicable for injection stretch blow molding  enables the formation of complex shapes and contributes to greater product design freedom for customers.
For maintaining uniform illuminance, a diffusion plate is generally placed near LED lighting sources. The currently used material for diffusion plates often includes polycarbonate and acrylic resin. But in the diversified environment of LED light sources, further light resistance, chemical resistance , resistance to high temperature and high humidity, and also lighter weight are required for the diffusion plate material.Our product contributes to the long term use and lighter weight of LED lighting devices.
Examples include LED lighting fixtures that require highly refined styling and complex processing (automotive interior lighting, outdoor sign boards, store lighting, and water-related lighting), digital signage, etc.
This material will be exhibited at the "Highly-functional Material World 2016" on April 6 to 8, 2016 at the Tokyo Big Site.
