Generally, there are three categories jacket coat of LED in the current LED market: epoxy resin glue, PU (polyurethane) glue and silicone glue. In the following part, we are going to discuss the feature of each type.
1. Epoxy Resin Glue LED Light Strip
The epoxy resin glue LED took the largest market share at present because of its low cost, great maneuverability, and little toxicity. However, there are some flaws such as heat dissipation issue, yellow degeneration, and poor temperature resistance. Firstly, due to the poor heat dissipation issue, the life span is not long, normally we need to replace it after 1-year use (heat issue is the main factor of life span). Secondly, the high yellow degeneration caused its appearance is old and dirty generally after 6 months application. Thirdly, cold weather will affect its flexibility. It may become hard and easy to damage after bending.
2. PU Glue LED Light Strip
Compared with Epoxy resin glue LED, the PU glue LED light strip is good at the yellow degeneration and temperature resistance. But there are still disadvantages such as higher toxicity and cost. It is not environment-friendly, it may cause health problems when inhalation during worker operation process.
3. Silicone Glue LED Strip light
Silicone glue Led strip light is the total winner compared with the above-discussed materials, because of it’s high yellow degeneration resistance, high flexibility, environment-friendly with good smell.
