Create Brand Differentiation with Lumex’s NEW QuantumBrite™ Flexible Backlights

Lumex announces the global launch of their QuantumBrite Flexible LED Backlight technology. Completely customizable in any shape, size, and color, QuantumBrite Flexible LED Backlights are up to 88% thinner and can cost up to 80% less than standard LED backlight technology.

Whereas standard LED backlights are 5mm thick, the QuantumBrite Flexible LED Backlight is made out of an ultra-thin polycarbon film and is only 0.6mm thick on its widest side.

“The ultra-thin, flexible QuantumBrite LED Backlight helps existing technologies significantly reduce their profile width and also opens the door for new applications that incorporate backlights in creative new ways, for example in applications that require curved lighting,” explained Brian Coates, Technical Sales Manager at Lumex.

The new thin, flexible backlights are ideal not only for traditional applications such as flat panel displays and indicator lighting, but also for non-traditional applications, such as logo enhancement or indirect lighting. Applications include:
  •     Appliances (including logo illumination and refrigeration display backlighting);
  •     Medical device technology (including indicator, logo enhancement and display features on medical radiology equipment, monitors, defibrillators, infusion pumps, blood gases analyzers and ventilators);
  •     Industrial Control technology (including climate control, AMR metering and drive control displays).
QuantumBrite Flexible LED Backlight technology comes with complimentary integration support. Lumex Technical Design Specialists can integrate the flexible backlights with LEDs, LCDs, light pipes, switches, connectors and other key components to create solutions that maximize performance and efficiency in each individual application.

The RoHs compliant QuantumBrite Flexible Backlight technology is available in custom sizes. Pricing is dependent on size and quantity ordered and is approximately $0.50 to $5.00 from 1.0”2 to 5.0”2 in size.  Production lead times range from five to eight weeks.
