ALBIS PLASTIC GmbH, global specialist for the distribution and compounding of technical thermoplasts located in Hamburg, will be presenting its products in 2014 for the first time at the Light + Building Trade Fair in Frankfurt am Main.

In Hall 4.0/Booth D61, ALBIS will demonstrate plastic solutions in the field of 'technical photometric components and accessories/LED's'. Here, the focus is on the product line offered by the company's own brand, ALCOM® as well as corresponding application possibilities for increasing energy efficiency:

•    ALCOM® LD (Light Diffusion) - for homogeneous, nearly loss-free light diffusion as well as excellent luminous efficiency
•    ALCOM®  LG  (Light Guide) - for optimum light guiding with maximum functionality, robustness and heat resistance
•    ALCOM® LB (Light Blocking) - for minimum light transmission with simultaneously high degree of reflection to increase luminous efficiency
•    ALCOM® TC (Thermo Conductive) - for improved heat management in combination with LED lights
•    TEDUR®  RF (Reflector) - for reflectors with direct metal plating and high temperature resistance

"Light + Building offers ALBIS an important forum for demonstrating attractive product solutions and application examples to visitors and experts in the lighting industry. Combined use of our materials and LED technology allows ALBIS to provide a significant contribution in terms of energy efficiency, while simultaneously increasing living comfort", promises Joachim Bernhard, Electrical & Electronics Marketing Director at ALBIS PLASTIC.
