This lightweight polycarbonate is a superior choice when compared to aluminum – a material that is subject to corrosion in tough, industrial environments. It also allows the luminaire housing to withstand prolonged exposure to moisture, dust and chemicals common in industrial environments.
Makrolon® polycarbonate enables the dust tight, watertight luminaire to meet a target lumen output of 10,000 lumens – achieving IP69K, IP66, NEMA 4x and NEMA 5 ratings. Additionally, this material meets challenging thermal and environmental requirements, allowing for a versatile, lightweight luminaire design that can be easily installed with a variety of mounting options for various needs.
In addition to Makrolon® polycarbonate, the Incoplas™ LED Hybrid also utilizes two other Covestro materials:
- Makroblend® resin: This flame-retardant material provides superior impact strength, dimensional stability and chemical resistance.
- Makrolon® polycarbonate diffusion sheet: Used in the luminaire’s lens, this material features higher flammability resistance and wider service temperature – offering an advantage over acrylic diffusers.
This application demonstrates how the broad portfolio of polycarbonate products available from Covestro provides LED manufacturers with endless benefits for a variety of lighting applications.
