Wacker Launches New High-Refractive-Index Silicones for LEDs

Wacker, the Munich-based chemical company, has developed new encapsulants for light emitting diodes (LED) and optical components. The compounds are made of highly transparent silicone elastomers with a high refractive index. The products withstand high operating temperatures and strong light radiation without yellowing. That makes them ideal for manufacturing LEDs with high light efficiency. They also protect the LED chip against corrosive gases, which greatly extends the component’s service life. The silicone encapsulation compounds can be processed in industrial metering processes such as dispensing.
