The protection of an LED Luminaire and the supporting components is an important consideration for many LED designers. With the LED market expanding into more and more sectors, so too is the need to protect LEDs from the vast variety of different operating environments in which the LED is expected to perform.

As the LED Luminaire Industry expands, LEDs are being used in ever more challenging environments and thus need adequate protection from exposure in a vast variety of environments. In addition to casing and covers, many LED manufacturers are choosing to encapsulate or coat the LED – or even to pot the entire unit in order to protect the luminaires. Electrolube has been at the forefront of the LED revolution in the past years and have an extensive range of specialist products developed specifically for the LED industry.

As an example of the variety of application requirements, Electrolube products have been used to protect LEDs used underwater in Swimming pools (Case Study), outdoors in Sports arenas (Case Study) as well as Automotive applications (Case Study) and underfoot in shopping malls (Case Study). Electrolube have also developed a number of specialist resins for hazardous or ATEX environments.
