PolyOne UltraTuf™ LED Light-Diffusing Sheet Cuts Hot Spots, Improves Design Freedom

PolyOne today announced the launch of UltraTuf™ LED, a premium light diffusing sheet that combines excellent light transmission and diffusion properties with toughness, chemical resistance and improved design flexibility. UltraTuf LED sheet is made using BPA-free Eastman Spectar™ Stratus copolyester, which has received UL Greenguard Certification for Indoor Air Quality.

Highlights:
•    Outstanding diffusion
•    Excellent light transmission
•    Durability
•    Design flexibility
•    Chemical resistance
•    Greenguard Indoor Air Quality Certified

UltraTuf™ LED sheet, manufactured using Eastman Spectar™ Stratus copolyester, is specially designed with optical properties that allow high levels of light transmission while effectively hiding hot spots in LED applications.  This durable sheet also provides an excellent balance between toughness and ease of fabrication.  It withstands the rigors of shipping and installation, yet allows creativity in design and forming.

“We developed new UltraTuf LED sheet with the ability to transmit up to 91% of light while still effectively diffusing the light across the lens,” said Kendall Justiniano, marketing director, Designed Structures and Solutions at PolyOne. “And we also harnessed the design flexibility and exceptional durability inherent in the base material to deliver a complete solution to LED lighting system designers.”

Because it offers deep draw thermoforming capabilities, UltraTuf LED sheet can be used to create visually stunning designs that allow OEMs to differentiate their lighting systems. It also has superior durability, withstanding direct impact in shipping or use of up to 15 times that of most traditional light diffuser materials for simpler handling and longer installed life. Good chemical resistance makes UltraTuf LED suitable for demanding environments, and ease of processing helps to improve operational efficiency during manufacture.
