Lamp cooling systems are using aluminum as a material. Due to the low thermal conductivity of plastics do not meet cooling requirements, cannot be used in the field of LED thermal. Recently, the DSM company launches new type of conductive plastic, keeping on the basis of the General advantages of plastic materials, increase of the coefficient of thermal conductivity, thermal conductivity coefficient of plastic 10-50.
Under the joint efforts of Philips and DSM, Philips MASTERLEDMR16 new lights became the world's first application of high-power LED, its aluminum shell was replaced with a thermal conductivity of plastic StanylTC. Stanyl improve design flexibility and durability of the products, as well as reducing the weight of products and many other advantages. The sustainability of future solutions will be applied to the Philips new LED lamps series as a whole.
Philips MASTERLEDMR16 is a 4 watt LED lamp can replace the prevailing low-voltage halogen lamps. Its light output with 20 Watt halogen MR16 lamps, therefore, it is the most important advantage is that it can save energy up to 80 and 40 times longer than halogen lamp service life.
Metallic materials as thermal systems technology is relatively mature, but there are still some shortcomings, metal plastic thermal conductivity material has many advantages, such as low weight, more environmental protection and safety, improved design freedom, easy processing, higher efficiency, start the system and so on.
