Research, Analysis, Know-how: Not conventional technologies, but advanced technology
New optical techniques, elaborate geometries and totally new manufacturing processes customized by Khatod  have been developed and implemented in order to make these innovative lenses able to achieve a superior optical refractive index, while delivering an optical performance perfectly complying with the optical efficiency requirements posed by the HB and COB LEDs of latest generation.

Feature high temperatures resistance, strong heat aging resistance and high chemical resistance, ultraviolet (UV) stability, purity, clarity, stable mechanical properties at a temperature range from –40°C to 150 C; withstand temperature peaks up to 200°C. Furthermore, they considerably reduce the yellowing effect and are perfect for outdoor applications. Ideally suitable for street lighting, they can also be used for many other applications in wide area lighting, indoor and outdoor.
