EL lighting is unique in being a thin, flexible, rugged, uniform, cool source of illumination with highly versatile design properties.
Thin: Standard Technolight EL products are typically between 0.010″ and 0.012″. EL lamps can be introduced into existing hardware with minimum changes to the packaging or mechanical layout. No special mounting hardware is required.
Flexible: Technolight EL lamps are generally prepared on flexible polyester substrates, allowing them to be used in applications (such as safety garments) or assemblies where bending is required.
Rugged: The all-polymer design with Technolight’s technique produces a tough lamp, which will survive heavy-duty use. There is high resistance to chemical attack, no tendency to delaminate, even with thermal cycling.
Uniform: EL light is emitted uniformly over the entire lit area. As a result, no need exists for light pipes, diffusers, reflectors or multiple sources to provide flat, uniform illumination over a wide area.
Cool: In an EL display, the light is generated by a purely solid state process, so no heat is generated. This means no energy is wasted in heat, no thermal stress is produced, and no heat has to be dissipated and removed from the assembly.
Versatile: Technolight lamps are manufactured using printing techniques. As a result, anything that can be rendered in two dimensions can be illuminated. Technomark also offers a unique connection to the graphic arts industries through its heritage in screen-printed graphics. The result is a line of display products, which look equally good lit or unlit.
