NEW Light Guide Film (LGF)
Light Guide Film uses a thin film to direct light produced by LEDs across a chosen area. The film can be in any shape and across multiple areas of the panel. LGF can light small or large areas consistently. The plastic film can be as thin as 0.003 inches, ideal for applications that have minimal space or require little impact on tactile feel. LGF’s can be more expensive but provide greater versatility. For more information click here.
Light Emitting Diodes (LED)
Light Emitting Diodes are a popular form of backlighting. They are reliable, have a long operating life, and are available in many colours at a lower cost. If a surface requires continuously lit lighting, LEDs are a good choice, as they have low operating voltages and efficient power consumption.
Electroluminescent Lighting (EL)
Electroluminescent lighting is a traditional form of backlighting technology. It converts electricity directly into light using phosphors. However, the phosphors can delay when overused. So are suited for applications that are not always required to be lit. Under regular operation, EL Lighting consumes little power but is not practical for lighting large areas.
