All-plastic LED Lamp for Outdoor Illumination
Sep 7, 2010 Two Japanese companies, Iwasaki Electric Co., Ltd. and Teijin Limited, have jointly developed a completely plastic LED lamp. The new LED Eyelamp product will be released by Iwasaki Electric by the end of this year, and is claimed to be the world’s first LED lamp for outdoor illumination that uses plastic for the entire housing, except for the bayonet cap.
The lamp uses a high-thermal-conductivity resin for the housing in place of aluminum. The resin is made by combining Teijin’s Raheama(tm) high-thermal-conductivity carbon material with polycarbonate resin. It can disperse heat on par with aluminum.
The new lamp weighs 300 grams, life time 40,000 hours. It comes in a warm-colored 3,000K (Ra=80) model, and a white 6,500K (Ra=70) version.
Iwasaki expects initial annual sales of 30,000 lamps, while developing more product variations. Teijin says that it will further expand the market for its Raheama product in LED and other applications, aiming to sell several hundred tons annually by 2015.
