Silicone materials solutions for
next-generation LED lamp
and luminaire

Let us help you achieve your vision

Dow Corning LED lamp product applicationsModern LED technologies have opened whole new avenues for lighting designers and architects, and silicon-based solutions from Dow Corning are a key part of this lighting revolution. Count on us to add more performance and value to nearly every aspect of your next-generation lamps and luminaires. Go inside a lamp and luminaire to see where our silicone materials can help meet the needs of your LED lighting applications, view the product guide, or read on to learn more.
Dow Corning LED luminaire product applications

Production and assembly

Dow Corning materials address the key performance issues that challenge lamp and luminaire design.

Learn more about our product lines for production and assembly:

  • Adhesives and sealants– offer excellent long-life adhesion for assembling components tightly and securely.
  • Conformal coatings– ensure durable resistance to chemical, environmental and moisture contamination.
  • Pottants– protect LED drivers from moisture and dust while dissipating damaging heat and absorbing component noise.
  • Thermal interface materials– manage the high-heat issues of high-brightness LEDs and complexity of innovative lamp designs.
    • Thermally conductive adhesives
    • Greases and compounds
    • Dispensable thermal pads

Secondary optics for LED lighting

Optics made with our silicones can mold into complex shapes, thicker and bigger parts and undercuts, enabling lighting applications once thought impossible. To inspire these next-generation breakthroughs, we’ll work closely with you early in the design phase, connecting you to our network of molding and optical experts to help you develop the best solutions. It’s part of our commitment to work alongside your teams to test designs, recommend modifications and provide total solutions to your challenges.

Learn more about our key products for next-generation optics:

Dow Corning Optical Moldable Materials Optical moldable materials– Deliver good UV resistance, minimize yellowing, resist scratching, mix easily with additives, mold into complex shapes, reduce cycle times and system costs, manage increasingly high temperatures. Watch the Leveraging Optical Moldable Silicone for Lighting Applications webinar to find out more
Dow Corning White Reflective Materials White reflective materials– Enable high reflection, allow systems to run at high temperatures without compromising efficiency, and add flexibility with moldable materials

Here are just some of the ways you can use our optical moldable materials in your application:

  • Transparent lenses/total internal reflection (TIR) optics – High transparent flexible silicones that work in a wide range of temperatures, can operate in a high lumen density system without changing properties in range of different hardnesess to give extra design options
  • Light diffusers – Silicone's flexible properties can help maintain efficiency and diffuse light by balancing high temperature, UV resistance, and high lumen density, with detailed surface finishing in the mold
  • Light guides/light pipes – Silicone properties can allow higher efficiency guides, variety of thickness and flexibility

Learn more about the design freedom offered by silicone optics.

In addition to these proven materials, Dow Corning is currently collaborating with customers like you to develop remote phosphor silicones to support growing requests for advanced reliability by addressing the high temperatures caused by phosphor conversion. Contact us to learn more about the remote phospor product development.
