The properties of the four new PCT compounds are tailored for use in housings, sockets and other LED chip components. Used as a material for the housings, they reflect the light of the LEDs almost completely, keeping brightness losses to a minimum. Photo: LANXESS AG

Even after 28 days in storage at 120 °C, the light reflection of Pocan TP 555-911, -991, -912 and -992 is still far above 90 percent. In contrast, the reflection of high-melting polyamides diminishes noticeably, because they yellow with age. Photo: LANXESS AG
