03.04.14 3 Ways Silicone is Keeping you Safe
Silicone Process Development
Our team of engineers will work with you to develop new processes and silicone formulations that allow you to push the boundaries of silicone manufacturing.
Below you will find a case study of a project that we worked on jointly with Frangioni Laboratory. This is just one example of the many ways in which we use our extensive knowledge of silicone processing along with our innovative and creative problem solving skills to work with our customers to develop new silicone manufacturing processes. Our rapid in house silicone prototyping capabilities assures the fastest turn around time for developing new parts.
Case Study: Frangioni Labs
LED array assembly and housing
Problem: Heat dispersion
Solution: Albright Technologies was able to work with Dr. Frangioni and his team to develop a process for overmolding LED arrays with a thermally conductive silicone. This increased the effeciency of the LED array by 25% because the thermally conductive silicone overmolding effectively dissipated the heat from the LED array to the alluminum housing.
Problem: Color coding
Solution: We were able to add a color disperstion to the thermally conductive silicone so that technicians were able to determine the color of the LED array with out having to turn it on.
Problem: Light scattering
Solution: We were able to develop a silicone component that fits precisely over the LED array, that effectively collimated that light emitting from the LED array.
