Bright ideas abound at Penn Color. These ideas have led to much advancement when it comes to designing colors, diffusers and heat management additives for lighting applications.
For decades, major sheet extruders and resin producers have relied on us to design and manufacture high quality masterbatches for acrylic and polycarbonate applications because of our extensive knowledge and our market proven technologies. Our colors can be seen in backlit signs at gas stations, retail shops and restaurants all over the world. Applications such as these demand strong color formulation skills to ensure good optical properties in reflected light during the day, as well as transmitted light after dark. Our color matching staff has the experience and expertise to make that happen.
Light diffusion is a difficult property to manage. Diffusing the sheet in order to conceal the light source, while at the same time, allowing the maximum amount of light to pass thru the surface is no easy task. At Penn Color, we have a palette of chemistries and additives that allow us to custom design the optimum solution for your specific application.
With the advent of the more energy efficient LED lighting, the lighting market has been revolutionized, creating new challenges and requiring unique solutions. LED lighting is replacing fluorescent lighting in commercial signage applications. This calls for new light diffusion chemistries to hide hotspots in the sign as they become thinner and LED lights are drawn closer to the surface. In residential applications, LED lighting is quickly replacing conventional incandescent light bulbs, again requiring the need for a new line of diffusers and heat management additives.
Whether it’s acrylic or polycarbonate, liquid or solid, Penn Color is equipped and ready to meet your challenge. We have extensive experience in the sheet extrusion process, injection molded applications, and both cell and continuous cast operations, and look forward to solving your next challenge.
