Description

ACRYLITE® LED rod is ideal for transmitting high-powered LED light. Its unique light-conducting properties distribute light evenly throughout the entire rod surface. As light enters from the end, embedded colorless diffuser particles scatter the light forward and exit the surface at low angles. This results in uniform bright illumination. ACRYLITE® LED light-guiding rods are the only product on the market today offering light transmission in a round rod form.

This rod offers excellent solutions for the following applications:

  • Lighting fixtures
  • Illuminated handrails
  • POP/Store fixtures
  • Exhibit applications

This material is easily thermoformed without compromising functionality. We offer three grades for maximum illumination dependent on the length of the desired application.

  • L (0E011) - for applications in lengths up to 24"
  • XL (0E012) - for application lengths between 24” and 48”
  • XXL (0E013) - for application lengths between 48" and 78"

  • Transparent
  • Disperses light evenly along the length
  • 91% Light Transmission
  • UV Absorbent

Product

ACRYLITE® light guiding acrylic rod has unique light conducting properties that distribute light evenly throughout the entire rod surface. As light enters from the end, embedded colorless diffuser particles scatter the light forward and exit the surface at low angles resulting in uniformly bright illumination.

Suitable for many purposes, it will bring dazzling light intensity to your next project.

Features & Benefits

  • Three grades available for maximum illumination
  • Even light dispersion
  • Easily thermoformed
  • 10 year warranty

Applications

  • Lighting fixtures
  • Illuminated handrails
  • P-O-P/Store fixtures
  • Exhibit applications

Fabrication

This material can be machined using the same methods as standard extruded acrylic rod. Diamond milling or flame polishing the rough end will reduce loss of light upon entry by as much as 6% compared to a sawed edge. It is possible to matte the surface of the rod through sandblasting or matte lacquer. However, this can lead to irregular lighting and decrease the luminance as the rough surface disperses the light.

LED rods

Uniform Illumination

Illuminated by LED lights at one or both ends, it disperses light evenly throughout, whereas conventional acrylic rod glow only at one end. Additionally, ACRYLITE® light guiding rod can be easily formed into shapes and letters without compromising functionality.
