Lighting challenges

Mascherpa products can be used to assist designers in protecting LED systems in a variety of harsh operating conditions, including, for example, the installation of lighting systems in corrosive or polluting environments.

Mascherpa also offers useful products for the aesthetic design of the lighting system, as well as helping to provide key functional improvements such as increased efficiency and significantly reduced energy consumption.

The environment in which the LEDs and associated electronics are used will have an effect on the type of product required to protect the system and ensure the highest reliability.

If operating conditions include high humidity, presence of chemicals, salt spray or corrosive atmospheres, Mascherpa can offer materials to guarantee performance and ensure high reliability over the lifetime of the luminaire.

With the wide range of products available, Mascherpa can also offer materials to meet special LED application requirements, such as low or zero VOC.

Energy saving is a very important objective in today’s consumer civilisation. Lighting, whether civil or private, is increasingly committed to reducing consumption, extending the lifetime of components and improving the performance of devices. We offer products for assembly, thermal encapsulants, heat-conductive materials, adhesives and sealants, and conformal coating. Whether your application involves the production, assembly, protection or enhancement of LED lighting devices, you will find a solution tailored to your material or process requirements with Mascherpa.

Protection and assembly

Adhesives and sealants

By forming durable, low-stress elastomers, Mascherpa silicone adhesives and sealants enable excellent bonding and sealing between a variety of common LED lighting materials. This increases design flexibility and ensures reliable long-term performance at temperatures up to 150°C. These solvent-free materials cure at room temperature, which greatly simplifies processing and, thanks to their low volatility, helps your product maintain its light output throughout its lifetime.

Optical encapsulants

The use of an encapsulating resin to protect LEDs has become increasingly common in recent years. The choice of resin depends on several factors; the viscosity, service life and gelling time, as well as the hardness, density, and operating temperature of the hardened resin. When directly protecting the LED, there are a number of essential factors; fundamental among them is the transparency of the applied material to ensure maximum utilisation of the light emitted by the LED. In addition, any changes that may occur over the life of the LED must also be considered.

Conformal coating

The delicate electronic components in your design must be protected from moisture and physical stress. Mascherpa’s silicone conformal coatings provide this protection, as well as excellent insulation from shocks and short circuits. They are available in different viscosities and cure chemistries.

Thermal encapsulants

Protection and performance go hand in hand, Mascherpa encapsulants help balance both. In addition to moisture resistance, they absorb the stresses of thermal cycling, protecting sensitive components. Their high transmittance and thermal stability help your project maintain light quality for a longer period of time, while their unique chemistry offers minimal yellowing and degradation.
With a selection of cure, viscosity and hardness profiles, you can explore new design options in a variety of applications. Mascherpa encapsulants also expand processing options, from dispensing materials to overmoulded lenses.

Thermal interface materials

Nothing shortens the life of LED lighting more than heat… and LEDs generate a lot of it. By designing with silicone thermal interface materials, you have more options for heat management.
The thermal stability of silicones offers consistent, long-lasting thermal conductivity, even at temperatures at which traditional materials might begin to degrade.

Thermal adhesives form thermally stable bonds with most LED PCBs and heat sink substrates and offer excellent thermal conductivity. Their low volatility does not adversely affect components or light output. In addition, their sealing and adhesive qualities make it possible to minimise the number of components and optimise the production process.

Optical silicones

Moldable Optics

Mascherpa’s mouldable silicone optics offer an unprecedented level of design freedom. Versatile and mouldable, these materials allow you to explore more complex designs, often simplifying the manufacturing process.
In addition, they can increase the long-term performance of your design beyond the capabilities of traditional optical materials. Not only do they offer excellent optical properties, but they are also more resistant to impact damage and degradation from UV, heat and extreme environmental conditions. In this way, they can help provide higher lumen density while remaining stable over time.
With mouldable silicone optics, new design possibilities can be explored in complex applications such as automotive, outdoor display, general, professional and consumer lighting.
