The widespread use of LED technology has driven new material innovations
First and foremost, new, highly transparent silicone materials allow the production of optical elements such as sensors, optics and light guides from this flexible and temperature-resistant material. Requirements such as a large temperature range and excellent optical clarity with increased UV resistance are met by optical moulded parts made of silicone.
The advantages of silicone moulded parts in optical applications:
An example of an application made from a combination of flexible light guides made from highly transparent silicone; Our technology platform Siloptics Flexilight shows a reflector and decorated diffuser including surface decoration.
Silicone materials allow extensive and individual application possibilities. Last but not least, the silicone materials allow the production of complex, very precise geometries and microstructures.
In applications with limited space or at high temperatures through high-performance LEDs or xenon lamps, silicone shows its strengths to the full.
Silcos offers the entire value chain from design support including light simulation, through toolmaking to mass production.
For optical applications with additional processing steps such as:
The experts at Silcos feel quite at ease.
We produce serial silicone molded parts. Complex geometries or sophisticated designs are not a problem for us, but everyday life.
We act as a system provider and lead assemblies from the task to the prototype to mass production.
