ILT LED Edge Lighting Strips and Evonik Cyro’s ACRYLITE® LED Creates Dramatic Signage Effects
International Light Technologies (ILT), a leading designer, manufacturer, and distributor of LED-based lighting products, has partnered with Evonik Cyro LLC to create a unique LED Edge Lighting product to use with Evonik Cyro's ACRYLITE® LED for edge lighting (formerly EndLighten T) acrylic sheet material.
Ultra-thin sign panel lighting is created using ACRYLITE® LED illuminated with ILT LED Edge Lighting Strips placed at the edges of the sheet. The acrylic material then glows uniformly across its two perpendicular surfaces. The special light-diffusing particles inside the acrylic extract the light uniformly through the sheet and direct it toward the viewer. ACRYLITE® LED is a transparent colorless material offered in four grades, two sizes and various sheet thicknesses.
The typical setup consists of ACRYLITE® LED sheet illuminated with ILT LED Edge Lighting modules at one, two, or four sides. A transparent protection sheet can be used to protect the poster and light guide. A secondary surface diffuser can be used to improve the light scattering in certain applications. A highly reflective white sheet or film can be used on the reverse side of the acrylic to create a single surface illumination as well.
