    What is light guide panel and which fields are its application?

    1.The main material of LGP is PMMA(Acrylic or also called organic glass). Acrylic Panel which through special processing,only install light source on the side(CCFL cold cathode fluorescent tube ,LED ,T4 / T5 energy-saving tube),according to the square size,with installing the length's double side and one side(long double side /long single side),or the width's double side(short double side),then after power , will the whole Acrylic Panel be issued a uniform bright,which called "LGP".

    2.production methods: A,Silk print, Using a special ink printed pattern like dot on a transparent acrylic board.Generally the brightness of this method is better,as the slik printing dots is white color;B,Laser,using laser dot or line on the panel,the advantage of this method is quickly.But the laser cut had the size limited,the max size is 1.2 M x 2.44 M.

  • Silk printing dots led light panel VS Laser dots led light panel

    Silk printing dots led light panel VS Laser dots led light panel
    How to make a bare transparent panel to be the light panel which could be guide the light evenly?It request add the dots on the bare transparent panel for the lighting diffuse reflection.
    There are two ways to add the light dots:silk printing & laser cutting.Let’s compare the different of the two methods.

    Silk printing dots
    Format:The silk printing dots is develop form single dots into 9 dots silk printing.
    Size limited:The former single dot silk printing dots is hard to control the big size acrylic panel which more than A1 size.The 9 dots silk printing could be easy to control any size of light panel.But it request the silk printing mold in different size.The silk printing mold easy to broken for long time use.
    Appearance:It would seem the dark area by eye easily by for format single dots silk printing.But the single dots is not so clear when you cover the white film onto it.The lighting seems every evenly by the 9 dots silk printing.But the 9 dots silk printing request at least 5 mm thickness acrylic for the light diffuse reflection.The most advantage is the scratch is not clear on the silk printing light panel.The scratch on back sided would not seem by the cover film;It could polish the scratch on the front of acrylic panel.And it would not seem the white area after the polish.(Only the acrylic panel could be polish,the PS panel could not do any polish.)
    It is manual operation.The quality would be main control by the experienced person in charge of the silk printing.It need long time to training.And it request face the cost increase the labor fee.
    The quality effect by the weather as well;
    Produce time:The silk printing only take one mins to printing the LGP in size 1500 x 3000 mm.So it take less produce time for several hundred pcs large size light panel.

    Laser dots
    Format:It is develop from the laser line into the laser dots;
    Size limited:it is size is referred to the size of the laser machine.The max size could be up to 2000 x 3000 mm;
    Appearance:Its lighting is evenly.And it could do the laser on the 3 mm acrylic to reduce the cost.But as the laser dots guide most of the light onto the surface of the panel.Any scratch and polish & hand print on the surface is very clear.
    It is machinery manufacturing。The quality is control of the laser machine and its software.It is easy to enlarge the invest.
    It would take long time for big size light panel.But the laser machine factory try to improve its speed.The most power laser machine would only take about 15 seconds for the LGP in size 600 x 600 mm.
    Consider of the invest,the labor fee,the quality control,most of factory adopt the laser dots now.Only some historical factory still offer the silk printing light panel.
  • What is effect the color of the led light panel?

    What is effect the color of the led light panel?

    (1)The main influencing factors is the LED;
    If you choice the 5500~6000 K led,the main color of the LGP is pure white;If you choice the 7000~8000 K led,the main color of the led panel is blue;if you choice the 2500~4500 K led,the main color of the led light board is yellow.
    But the realistic problems is the color of led is difference when it purchase form the led supplier.For most of LED supplier,they could only agree offer you the same area color led(for example,4500~4750 K) in some produce time.It would be a little different form the next time.If it is not so easy to find out until you put them together.So we could only offer the same color of led light pane in the single order.But if you obtain a very large project.It would divide into several orders in a period.
    How to deal with?First and the most important,you need to tell us you need the same color for this large project;Then we could stock the quantity led for your project if you agree to pay for some deposit.Then it could make sure the color of your whole project would be some led,some color.

    (2)The material of panel would effect the color as well;
    The most popular material for led light panel is Acrylic ( PMMA ) panel & PS panel.(As the new high-tech,the PS panel is form the blue color into the nearly transparent now.It is hard to find the difference of the PS panel and the acrylic panel by the professional person in this industry.)If choice the acrylic as light panel,it would not change the color;If choice the cheap blue PS as light panel,the color of light panel would be affect by the blue color of the PS panel;If choice the best PS panel as light panel,the color would be affect as well.

    (3)The reflective film on the backside of light panel;
    It would be better choice the pure white reflective film / paper on the backside of led light panel.But some reflective paper with a little yellow,some with a little blue.The color of reflective paper would be affect the color of led light panel.

    (4)The double sided tape on the edge;
    The double sided tape is transparent at the beginning.But it would change into yellow.The yellow color of the double sided tape would affect the color of the led light panel.

    (5)The glue cover the led lamp.
    If there is rest some glue cover the led lamp strip,the area would be produce some yellow color light.It would affect the color of the LED light panel.

This is less than 5/8″ thick! This LED slim light box is not even a box: It is a panel! It has a very sleek and thin look when mounted to your wall. If I were purchasing for a high-end department store, this is elegant look I would want to portray.

    2. Electrical Consumption: This is not a consideration one usually puts at the top of the priority list when purchasing light box panels, but believe it or not, it is a very important factor. See chart below.

    3. Who is Going to Change the Bulb? This is a very important consideration that most purchasers don’t even think about up front. Do you have a full-time, reliable janitorial or facilities management staff  Will you be shutting down each slim light box at the end of each business day, and turning them back on in the morning? Don’t kid yourself, this virtually never happens!
            a.   Traditional T5 slim light boxes have bulbs that last about 1.5 years if you are leaving the slim light box on 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. When just one of two bulbs dies, a huge cold spot [shadow] appears on your slim light box. Will a janitorial person quickly take notice, have extra T5 bulbs on hand, and come quick for a bulb change-out? Will the box sit idle for days on end, half lit up and half in shadows? The maintenance and bulb change-out is simple, but like mowing your lawn or cleaning your gutters, it can be an annoying and often procrastinated chore. So, if bulb changing is not your thing, don’t choose T5 technology

            b.   CCFL have a more difficult symptom: Their bulbs are very difficult to change because they are very thin and installed into the slim light box frame in an integrate manner. Unless you have a knack for tinkering, or some craftsman-type ability, these light boxes usually need to be returned to the factory for bulb replacement. The good point is that CCFL bulbs will last 4 to 5 years [if leaving the light box on 24 hours per day, 7 days per week] c.    EEFL slim light boxes have a life of about 50,000 hours of life, the bulbs are easy to change, but easy to broken in the delivery. d.    LED slim light boxes have a life of about 100,000 hours of life! For all practical purposes, this light box is going to last and last 100,000 hours divided by 8760 hours per year= 11.41 years]. You will spend a bit more on the upfront purchase, but you will get payback in both convenience and cost-savings from bulb replacement (labor and materials).
