Heat control in LED lamps


Whenever it comes to IP it is essential to protect the whole lamp and electronic from particles and water coming from the outside. The higher the IP-rate the more the lamp is protected. However, if nothing can come in then nothing can come out.

In LEDs and other electronic equipment current is flowing constantly. Once the lamp is lit up, its temperature rises. This heat is trapped in the lamp and since it can hardly flow out, it shortens the life of LEDs and plastic covers.

With the vision to optimise any lighting process, GiPlast has developed the Heat-Control-Line, an in-built solution that makes heat flow directly to the outside of IP-lamps.

Thermally conductive plastic is the key to make heat flow ten times more efficiently than normal plastic parts, which prevents LEDs and other components from being affected by heat.

By using extruded plastic, design possibilities are endless.

Being extruded also means that anything is bound together, allowing no flaw in the body of the lamp, observing the highest IP-rates.
