Lucite® Diakon® provides flexible lighting solutions
The lighting industry appreciates the versatility of Lucite® Diakon® and its superior lighting solutions that make it ideal for applications such as fluorescent light fitting covers.
Typically, manufacturers require:
- Chemical resistance– resists attack from a wide range of solvents and chemicals, this ensures long-term good looks and performance
- Impact resistance – particularly important for lights used in public facilities such as schools, our polymers are available in three levels of material toughness as measured by Charpy or Izod impact strength
- Flexural strength/rigidity – this ensures ease of fitting without risk of breakage
Processing requirements for injection moulding:
- Balance of mould filling via hot runner systems
