Plus Opto Announces Launch of LG Chem OLED Lighting Range

Plus Opto Ltd, The Optoelectronics Specialist, has signed the first agreement to distribute the OLED Lighting product range from market leader LG Chem, in the UK. The range includes the world’s largest commercially-available panel at 320x320 mm and – an industry first – a flexible OLED panel on plastic substrate with a bend radius of 30 mm. Panels are available in 3000 K and 4000 K colour temperatures. A CRI of 90, efficacy of 90 lm/W and lifetime - previously a concern for potential OLED users - up to 40000 hours, makes LG Chem OLED panels the ideal solution for a wide range of applications.

All items are in mass production and samples are available from stock. Also in stock at Plus Opto are DIY kits, comprising one or two 100 mm panels complete with cable and connector, touch switch, power supply and a manual, allowing the user to create smart, flexible designs in minutes.

Plus Opto’s Marketing Manager, Martyn Skipper commented: “For over 20 years Plus Opto has been at the forefront of optical electronics development. OLED lighting is now an affordable, accessible technology and Plus Opto is delighted again to take the lead. This is an exciting time in the fast-moving world of solid-state lighting and LG Chem has proved with its investment in R&D and largescale production that it is prepared to hold on to market leadership”.

LG Chem’s Marek Ramski added: “LG Chem’s wide range of OLED light panels will provide the lighting designers and architects various opportunities to be unique. With OLED light panels, there is infinite possibility in design because they are ultra-thin and light, even flexible. OLEDs are very special in that you need to feel the light in order to truly appreciate them. Having such a prestigious distributor as Plus Opto as a partner in the UK is a great opportunity for us.”

Unlike LED, OLED lighting provides surface illumination, with high CRI, creating a pleasant light source, with no so-called “blue hazard” or UV and no need for heatsinking. Because the light is diffused across the surface, there is no need for additional diffusers or optics, reducing cost, and size of luminaire.
