Webinar Recording “Applications for High-Performance, Optically Clear Silicone Rubber”

Optical silicones provide long-term stability, material flexibility, and proven processing performance. Due to their high-temperature properties, luminous flux, and resistance to weathering, these advanced silicone rubber materials are well-suited for a variety of LED lighting applications. By understanding the material performance needs in these and other lighting applications, Dow continues to expand its portfolio of moldable optical silicones and is developing innovative technologies, such as clear extrudable silicone rubber. In this webinar recording, three presenters from Dow describe innovative applications for optical silicones in both general and automotive LED lighting.
