Today’s LED Assembly is More Than a Surface Issue

Todays LED Assembly is More Than a Surface IssueWith all the hoopla surrounding LEDs and their longevity, is it any wonder why LED manufacturers are scrambling to extend the lives of painted or anodized aluminum components, ornamental brackets and lamp poles? While it’s common knowledge that adhesives and sealants help with these challenges, a lesser known solution lies in your surface treatment—the preparation of metal surfaces to extend the life of paint and to seal and protect the surfaces from corrosion.

Employing the right surface treatment technology has been known to double the long-term weather resistance of painted lamp bases and aluminum, street lamp poles. In fact, a large producer of public lighting structures recently reported a total savings of more than $100,000 a year in production and cleaning costs, treatment chemicals, energy and water usage as well as disposal costs.

Henkel’s BONDERITE EC² electro-ceramic coating process offers five to 10 times improved corrosion protection over older treatment methods and conventional paints. It also eliminates the need for surface pretreatment and one to two layers of paint. The environmentally-friendly process is responsible for substantial energy savings and waste reduction. Introducing this type of process into your operations is the next logical step, following the addition of integrated adhesives and sealants, to help today’s LED manufacturers achieve that sweet spot of peak efficiency.
