Luxtech Launches Industry-Leading Flexible LED Tape Family

Luxtech, a leading American manufacturer of LED modules, today announces its FLEX family of architectural-grade flexible LED tape for luminaires. The new FLEX family addresses the concerns luminaire manufacturers have with previous LED tape products. The product is cuttable in convenient lengths suitable to the North American market. A heavier copper weight ensures brightness consistency and excellent thermal performance. Specification-grade 3M VHB adhesive ensures the product will remain bound to its housing for years to come.

FLEX also introduces a new supply chain paradigm for manufacturers used to sourcing rigid LED modules. Cuttable in increments as short as one inch, the product is compatible with a wide variety of luminaire designs. This FLEX-abilityTM means inventories – and associated losses – can be drastically minimized.

Because of the reduced inventory requirements and non-rigid properties of FLEX, manufacturers have increased freedom to experiment with new luminaire designs. Before LED, manufacturers were limited to a few lamp types when designing fixtures. Luxtech pioneered custom LED modules, drastically expanding form factor possibilities. FLEX takes the LED advantage a step further, providing not only physical flexibility, but also creative flexibility.

Luxtech specifies 3-step MacAdam binning and LM-80 tested LEDs up to 90 CRI for all its products, including FLEX. This means luminaire manufacturers can expect the same high-quality color consistency and performance they get from their rigid Luxtech LED modules. In addition, FLEX is backed by a comprehensive 5-year warranty.

Over the coming weeks, Luxtech will formally announce each product in the new FLEX family. The flagship offering, FLEX CC, is cuttable every inch and works with familiar constant current drivers. FLEX Reach offers 99% brightness consistency over runs up to 20 feet. FLEX Swerve bends in a planar direction up to 90°, and FLEX Color supports creative luminaire and signage design with individually-addressable RGB segments.
