Auer Lighting Product Launch at LpS 2014 - Light Guides Made from Suprax® 8488 Borosilicate Glass

Beyond our already well known capabilities, Auer Lighting is proud to introduce the injection molding technology for advanced glass optics. This ground breaking technology enables Auer Lighting to produce light guides made from glass with added design features. Glass light guides are used in applications with high-power LEDs, e.g. automotive and stage lighting. They help to achieve the desired light distribution and color mixing.

Especially with high-power LEDs, temperatures easily can exceed the maximum operating temperatures of plastic materials like acrylic, PC, and even silicone.

Damaged PMMA-light guide Beyond its supreme thermal stability, our borosilicate glass SUPRAX® 8488 offers low thermal expansion and zero water absorption allowing for precise light guidance along difficult environmental conditions.

Auer Lighting offers customized light guides as well as standard solutions. All light guides can be offered with our unique μ-treat technology further improving light distribution and color mixing.

Other surface features offered include:
· Polished input/output aperture
· Coatings: AR, UV, color correction
· Mounting flange

Please talk to us, visit our booth no. A 21 during LpS 2014.
