Light-emitting diodes (LEDs) have become widely used throughout the world for their many advantages over incandescent light sources, including lower energy consumption, longer lifetime, improved physical robustness, smaller size, and faster switching.
LEDs are used in applications as diverse as TVs and handheld device displays, aviation and automotive lighting, advertising and general lighting, and medical devices, to name a few. They are also significantly more energy efficient and ecologically safer.
As a supplier to the LED market, DuPont brings exceptional materials expertise and industry experience. Our materials are critical enablers for the manufacture of LEDs used in backlighting for HDTV, mobile devices and displays, and general illumination fixtures.
LED Silicone Materials
Silicone-based LED packaging materials are essential to manufacturing many high-brightness LED devices. Our portfolio of products in this space allows us to offer a full range of material solutions for LED packaging. They include:
LED leadframes – the metal structures inside a chip package that carry signals from the die to the outside – require an electrolytic finish to achieve desired wire bonding, brightness and reflectivity. These are all critical performance factors of the silver-plated surface for LED components.
Major product segments include high-output LED packages like those supported by DuPont. Our Silverjet™ High Brightness Silver is an alkaline low-cyanide silver electroplating designed to produce leadframes for LED packages.
For a trusted LED materials partner offering the finest in quality and innovation, look no further than DuPont.
