  • LightDiffuser

    Light Diffuser from Freudenberg: nonwovens for uniform light distribution in LED luminaires

    Modern LED lighting systems require optical components. The aim is to transform punctiform light sources into a homogenously lit surface.

    Innovative Light Diffuser from Freudenberg are precisely tailor-made for this requirement. The high performance nonwovens based on special polyester fibers disperse light points - even at short distances from the light source. In addition, the diffusers achieve an excellent light output ratio and lighter, more compact lighting solutions. The light scattering media can be perfectly integrated into existing light constructions without having to change the design. Different weight versions for setting-defined opacity, as well as film reinforced and self-adhesive versions, offer manufacturers and planners a high degree of flexibility - for sophisticated and cost efficient lighting systems.

  • Super Caps

    Super Caps

    Known in the industry as ‘super caps’, supercapacitors are high-performance capacitors that work in a similar way to these batteries and have a particularly high capacity. Freudenberg Performance Materials has developed special ‘separator nonwovens’ especially for this application. Super caps can store and discharge energy very quickly, when necessary. They are used, for example, during the lifting and lowering of containers when loading and unloading ships.
