Marchtrenk, Austria-based injection molder Starlim Spritzguss GmbH has unveiled a highly flexible innovative lighting concept made from liquid silicone rubber that provides precise and diffuse illumination.
Roland Pirsic, vice president of business development and project development, presented the concept at the biannual silicone elastomers conference organized by SKZ Süddeutsches Kunststoffzentrum in Würzburg, Germany.
The flexible LED-illuminated light panel is designed with translucent LSR. This provides homogenous white and diffused LED light over a large surface, including when it is curved or twisted, with various possible degrees of flexibility, depending on the Shore A hardness of the chosen LSR.
The panel can take the form of different surface structures, whether as design features or to raise wear resistance, Pirsic said. Surface activation can used as preparation for further process stages, he added.
