LED films

our films for lighting applications

 

What are LED films?

An LED film is a special film for lighting technology. With these films, you can achieve an improved light diffusion and light transmission and, in conjunction with LED light sources, simultaneously ensure energy savings. Depending on the type and power of the light source and the position of the light source, different light effects can be created. Therefore, they are often referred to as LED diffusion films or diffuser films.

What types of LED film are there?

As a specialist for technical films, we offer you numerous products for lighting applications and LED light sources. These are polycarbonate films of the brands Makrofol ® from Covestro and Lexan ® from Sabic. We also offer high-quality PMMA films from the manufacturer Röhm for this application. The film products for light diffusion are available in rolls or cut to your desired size / format.

The translucent diffusion films impress with their homogeneous diffusion of light and their brightness. This makes them the ideal solution for a wide range of applications and processes in lighting technology and the lighting industry.

Opal diffuser films are milky white coloured films with a scattering additive specially developed for this application for uniform light scattering. When used in backlit components, our diffuser films provide uniform and homogeneous illumination over a wide area. The light sources behind them are no longer visible. The high-performance diffuser films enable a range of light diffusion levels. In addition, they offer a high impact strength and an excellent temperature resistance for optimised LED lighting.

The individual light diffuser films differ from each other in terms of colour, light diffusion (half-value angle) and transmittance (light transmission). Depending on the application, light source, light colour (cold or warm white) and surface, a different diffusion film with different light values is recommended.

We offer all types of film as non-adhesive products. We do not have self-adhesive LED films in our range. However, we would be happy to name one of our customers who can provide you with self-adhesive LED diffuser film.

What properties do diffuser films have?

Films for LED lighting are made of various materials. The most commonly used products include high-quality films made of polycarbonate (PC) and PMMA. Depending on the material, this results in very different product properties and areas of application. All light films can be easily punched and cut.

LED light diffusion films offer the following properties depending on the material:

  • Cuttable, punchable, printable
  • Self-adhesive finish
  • Temperature resistant
  • Chemical resistant
  • Weather resistant
  • UV-stable

We would be happy to send you a sample in advance or cut the LED diffusion film directly to your desired size. We will be happy to recommend the right product for your application and the light colour used (warm white or cool white).

Are LED films heat-resistant?

LED light films made of polycarbonate are characterised not only by a good impact strength but also by a high temperature resistance. Due to a resistance of - 40 °C to 130 °C, they can be used for demanding applications worldwide. The manufacturers of PC films specify a continuous service temperature of 105 °C. This allows the use of short-term or long-term applications. This enables use at short-term or permanently elevated temperatures for which diffuser films made of other materials are not suitable.

Are LED films UV stable and weatherproof?

Films made of PMMA are ideal for outdoor applications thanks to their high UV resistance. Weatherproof Plexiglas film is therefore the ideal solution for LED lamps for terraces, gardens, balconies or other outdoor applications. For more information on the individual products, please contact us.

Are LED films printable?

LED films can be customised with individual print images and multiple colours. Both polycarbonate films and PMMA films can be printed without any problems and without an additional coating. Most printing processes are suitable for these types of film. However, screen printing, digital printing and UV-curing printing systems are most commonly used in practice.

 

We offer LED diffuser film cut to size or in rolls directly from our warehouse in Wuppertal / Germany. For special shapes, please contact us. Our team will be happy to advise you. In addition, we offer a sample service so that you can convince yourself of the film properties (light transmission, transmittance, thermal stability, colour and thickness). In this way, you can carry out initial tests or produce prototypes with the help of our sample film. This way you can ensure that the selected light diffusing film is the right one for your application. We look forward to your enquiry

We will be happy to recommend the right LED diffuser film for your application. 

What are typical applications of LED films?

Typical applications of our light management films are in the lamp and lighting industry. In addition, light management films made of polycarbonate or PMMA are also used in the following areas: 

  • Diffusion of cold and warm white LED light.
  • Backlit displays and switches.
  • Interior parts for automobiles (LED film for cars).
  • Residential and commercial lighting.
  • Construction of lamps, spotlights, luminaires and lampshades.
  • Light boxes and illuminated advertising.
  • Various industrial projects.

We will be happy to recommend the right LED light diffuser film for your application and the light colour used (warm white or cool white). 

How can LED films be processed?

All films for LED lamps can be processed further with suitable accessories. The processing of the LED frosted glass film depends on the material. All films for lighting applications can be printed without any problems. Please contact us for further information on printability!

Our LED diffuser film service.

We offer our diffuser films in various surfaces and thicknesses from 250 µm to 500 µm as rolls. Depending on the thickness, the roll length and colour of the light films differ. We are happy to cut the rolls into rectangular sheets in the format you require. Special shapes are also possible on request. Just tell us the format you need and we will send you an offer with an attractive price. You can buy LED film from us! 

We deliver all LED films that we carry on stock within a few working days. For delivery, each product is securely and professionally packed. If you have any further questions about our range, light colours, manufacturers, delivery conditions or any other concerns, we will be happy to advise you.
