Winston Churchill once observed, “To improve is to change; to be perfect is to change often.” Well, we may not be perfect here at Henkel, but we do make an effort to keep improving. And so we’re introducing some changes to the LED Assembly Solutions blog that we hope will make it an even better […]

LEDs have revolutionized the lighting industry, particularly in their remarkable longevity compared to traditional lighting solutions. This has driven new requirements in LED assembly and luminaire design, as companies must create surrounding fixtures with housings and components capable of lasting as long as the LED components they protect.  Manufacturers are now faced with the challenge […]

LEDs are expected to demonstrate reliability and durability despite challenges that include extreme temperatures, vibration and UV rays. LED-compatible adhesives play a key role in achieving those expectations. But establishing the necessary LED compatibility takes time, money and hands-on testing. We are at the forefront of that testing, determining which adhesives have the right chemistry […]

You don’t know what you don’t know. But you can discover what you don’t know and improve the quality and cost-efficiency of your LED assembly process with a free LED lighting assembly tear-down analysis. At Henkel, we’re more than just the world’s leading adhesive and sealant producer. We’re also experts. We’re a team of experienced […]

Companies associated with LED assembly and manufacturing have long touted the energy-saving benefits of LED over traditional lighting technologies.  Older technologies are as little as 8 to 10 percent efficient. When you consider that lighting consumes more than 25 percent of the electricity in a typical commercial building, you can start to appreciate the significant […]

LED lighting is manufactured to last a long time. However, this can be more challenging with some applications, such as outdoor lighting that is subject to the blistering heat of summer, freezing winter temperatures, high winds and whatever else nature can unleash.  Through it all, the streetlights that help provide safety, security and protection have […]

Once again, Henkel was proud to participate in the annual Strategies in Light Show, which wrapped up last month in Las Vegas.  Many of the topics under discussion at this year’s event focused on the future of the LED lighting industry.  Day two of the event opened with a session entitled: “How Big is the […]

One of the challenges of LED design is the accommodation of not just a primary optic to collect, focus and shape the light produced, but the need to also accommodate secondary optics (those that exist outside the LED package) as well. These include reflector cavities, Fresnel lenses and pillow lenses.  As secondary optics are essential […]

Whether they are aware of it or not, most people have experienced the benefits of LED lighting.  From the long-lasting light on the front porch to the LEDs inside our computers and televisions, to the lights on the Christmas trees that will soon be going up in millions of homes, LED lights are everywhere, and […]

LED lighting is designed to run for 50,000 hours – or more – under the right conditions. Making sure those conditions are optimal is one of the challenges faced by LED manufacturers and manufacturers of board level components.  Unlike incandescent bulbs where filaments can safely reach well over 1,000°C, LEDs need to be run at […]
