3M Flame Barriers for Lighting Systems
LED lighting is expected to gain an ever increasing share of the global lighting market with use of LED luminaires. LED luminaires depend on high-performance LEDs, good thermal management, and low optical loss.
In addition to the use of heat sinks and thermal interface materials (TIMs) for thermal management at the component level, new flame barrier materials are providing solutions at the luminaire/light fixture housing-enclosure level.
New flame barrier materials have been developed specifically for LED lighting applications, for example, a Flame Barrier FRB Series from 3M™.
