DSI Introduces EcoWhite Silver Coating for Incandescent Reflectance Lamps

Published on 2011-10-17. Author : SpecialChem

DSI introduced an enhanced silver coating that provides superior reflector performance with increased lumen output and increased color temperature.

EcoWhite Silver™ (patent pending) is an innovative thin film coating with up to 5% measured improved reflection in the critical 350nm to 450nm region, significantly reducing the blue roll-off in typical, protected silver coatings. This coating improvement increases the color temperature for incandescent reflectance lamps and increases the overall efficiency of solar power systems.

With rising costs of energy, high performance reflectors are extremely important. Upto 14% improved lumen output has been measured for PAR type reflectors (as compared to typical flash aluminium-coated reflectors) using DSI's new EcoWhite Silver. The silver content in DSI's advanced silver coatings are decreased by 50%, compared to typical, protected silver reflectors, enabling a substantial savings in material and production expense. With the additional benefit of 14% more light, a lower wattage lamp will give the same amount of light as a higher wattage lamp. This results in a significant savings of both energy and operation costs because less electricity is needed over the life of the lamp.
