Stylish suspended luminaries are long-lasting

GE Advanced Materials : 29 July, 2004  (Application Story)
With its extreme resistance to harsh environmental conditions, Lexan SLX resin is a superior fit for many lighting applications requiring the use of polycarbonate materials. Italian architectural lighting manufacturer, iGuzzini illuminazione, selected GE Advanced Materials
Italian architectural lighting manufacturer, iGuzzini illuminazione identifies several needs key to the success of a new lighting system: the luminaries need superior resistance to extreme weather conditions, the ability to withstand the yellowing typical of lighting applications, to increase the product lifetime and reduce maintenance costs. Meeting these needs would allow iGuzzini to maintain the rigorously high standards necessary to meet its motto: Better Light for Better Life.

“GE Advanced Materials had the type and quality of material we needed to meet our customer’s needs,” said iGuzzini illuminazione Research Centre Director, Piergiovanni Ceregioli. “This particular location required luminaries with long life and low maintenance. Working with GE Advanced Materials allowed us to find the material that would best fit our needs and those of our customer.”

iGuzzini selected Lexan EXRL0086 resin, a breakthrough new polycarbonate copolymer resin grade in the Lexan SLX resin product family for its customer. Lexan SLX resins offer long-lasting weatherability and lower yellowing compared to similar standard polycarbonates. Lexan SLX resins are injection mouldable and provide better resistance to chemical and environmental elements, potentially eliminating the need for costly secondary coating applications.

“We look forward to providing innovative lighting solutions in the future,” said Harry Boot, Lexan field marketing director for GE Advanced Materials. “GE Advanced Materials offers unique products that can help lighting manufacturers achieve their innovative and imaginative designs and products that feature a stylish look with low maintenance.”
