The adhesives listed below work well to bond an optical component to a given PCB type. The adhesives listed also are generally safe to use with most LEDs on the market. We strongly recommend that every customer fully tests and takes the necessary measures to ensure that there is complete compatibility of the glue when used with his particular product, LEDs and other components. Testing and verifying of the adhesives and their combinations has always to be the customer’s responsability. Please take note of the Instructions of Use.
The optical values shown are the result of optical simulations carried out with ASAP and ZEMAX software systems. The optical simulations are carried out on the basis of the typical values provided in the LED manufacturers’ official datasheets. The photometric analysis has been carried out on physical samples. On request, by supplying your PCB, we can provide the measurement photometric file.
General Optical Measurement Tolerance : ± 10%
