Henkel's Adhesive Solutions for Light Fixtures

Lighting fixtures are built completely around LED technology for the most efficiency and longevity. The heart of a fixture is a “light-engine” – an array of LED sources — built on customized printed circuit boards (PCBs) for peak thermo-mechanical performance and designed with specialized optics for the most efficient and location-specific lighting.

Henkel offers a complete line of lighting solutions:

  • Thermal Conductive Adhesives for LED
  • LED Circuit Board Protection
  • LED Thermal Management
  • LED Lens Bonding
  • LED Gasketing
  • LED Solder
  • LED Housing Materials

Thermal Conductive Adhesives for LED

Thermal conductive adhesives for LED from Henkel offer robust thermal and performance capabilities for a variety of applications, such as roadway and parking lot lighting, architectural lighting, consumer and residential lighting, and industrial and commercial lighting and more. For this reason, Henkel’s portfolio of thermally conductive adhesives for LED applications are available in a number of formulations and characteristics to meet your specific requirements.

LED Circuit Board Protection

Protecting the printed circuit board (PCB) is one of the most important parts of an LED lighting system and using LED drivers protects the PCB from high-power faults and temperature exposure. Henkel’s broad portfolio of adhesive products for LED lighting systems, such as potting compounds and encapsulation materials, help ensure a long life and trouble-free operation. Our range of LED epoxy- and silicone-based encapsulation materials offers high thermal conductivity. Silicone, in particular, provides excellent LED encapsulation protection for streetlights, façade luminaires, illuminated signs and other outdoor applications.

LED Thermal Management

LED lighting is entering nearly every market niche as the light source of choice due to being an excellent cost-effective alternative to incandescent, fluorescent and halogen lighting. For this reason, high quality LED thermal solutions are required for a number of applications and industries. As a global leader in adhesive, sealing and bonding technologies, Henkel offers a broad portfolio of LED thermal management materials engineered for the design and manufacture of LED lighting devices.  

LED Lens Bonding

Henkel’s range of Loctite® adhesives for lens bonding and sealing offer fast-curing and excellent bonding to dissimilar substrates. Non-corrosive LED lens glue formulations are resistant to water, chemicals, and UV rays and ideal for sealing and bonding the LED lens to the housing material. Our epoxy-based lens bonding adhesives offer ultra-clear and impact-resistant bonds, while our silicone-based materials offer fast setting, light curable and flexible bonding, gasketing, and sealing.

LED Gasketing

LED gaskets provide protection and sealing for electrical housing to provide weather protection and prevent heat build-up. Henkel’s extensive portfolio of LED gasketing materials are suitable for both interior and exterior LED lighting systems.

LED Solder

When it comes to LED board assembly, high-performance light solder pastes and alloys help facilitate and streamline processes. With high temperature stability and excellent thermal cycling performance, Henkel’s LED light solder solutions are well suited for a number of applications, as well as high power LED assemblies where thermal stability is required for long-term reliability.  

LED Housing Materials

LED housing materials protect light systems against damage caused by external elements. One important function of LED housing material is to provide thermal management by continually diffusing heat generated within the electrical component. There are different LED housing materials, such as aluminum, plastic and ceramic that are suitable for different lighting systems. Henkel’s LED lighting solutions offer a wide range of thermally conductive LED encapsulation materials that can be used inside the LED housing. These materials easily flow around components to create a strong protective seal.

Henkel Adhesives Solutions for Outdoor Lighting Applications

For decades, Henkel has been a leader of adhesive solutions, and offers a broad selection of products suitable for outdoor lighting applications. Henkel lighting products provide safe and reliable solutions that ensure the integrity of outdoor and weather-exposed lighting components.

Henkel Adhesive Solutions for LED Drivers

Connectors and printed circuit boards (PCBs) provide the basis for electrical function.  PCBs span a range of complexity – from simple single- and double-sided substrates to multilayered, and from rigid to flexible. With every advance achieved in electronic products, the PCB and its assembled components are impacted. Henkel’s expansive range of PCB assembly materials includes bonding, connecting, and protection formulations that enable electrical operation and offer safeguarding for durable performance, regardless of the challenges that increasingly complex designs, densities, and end uses dictate.   

Henkel Adhesive Solutions for Other Lighting Applications
