Panel combines several centerprices of an edge-lit light guide
PLEXIGLAS WH is a recent product from Evonik Performance Materials. The PLEXIGLAS WH combines several centerpieces of an edge-lit light guide panel in a single product: a PLEXIGLAS PMMA light guide sheet, a light extraction pattern optimised for homogeneity and efficiency and a high performance light reflector layer.
Small volumes for validation are available immediately upon request. The length of the panel is variable and can be trimmed to its required size by typical processing methods suitable for PLEXIGLAS (e.g., CNC mill, circular saw and laser). Costly optical simulations for optimisation of the light extraction patterns, as well as screen printing or laser etching of the extraction pattern are no longer necessary for edge-lit luminaire manufacturing with this product.
In addition to standard flat light guide applications much more complex shapes are possible with this product by thermo- or vacuum-forming processes, literally opening up a new dimension of design options for edge-lit LED luminaires.
