Panasonic has developed a light diffusion type polypropylene (PP) resin moulding compound, known as Full Bright, which can extend the operating life of LEDs.

Mass-production of the new material, which Panasonic maintains is lightweight and provides higher brightness of LED lighting, will start in April, 2016.

For maintaining uniform illuminance, a diffusion plate is generally placed near LED lighting sources.

The current material for diffusion plates often includes polycarbonate and acrylic resin. “In the diversified environment of LED light sources, further light resistance, chemical resistance, resistance to high temperature and high humidity and also lighter weight are required for the diffusion plate material,” notes a Panasonic statement.

“Our product contributes to the long term use and lighter weight of LED lighting devices.”

Panasonic develops electronics technologies and solutions for customers in consumer electronics, housing, automotive, enterprise solutions and device industries.

Since its founding in 1918, the company has expanded globally and now operates 468 subsidiaries and 94 associated companies worldwide.
