|NuVi™ Light Leverages Polymer Technology for Lasting Performance
ANAHEIM, Calif. -- At Strategies in Light 2017, PolyOne
showcased the Nuvi™ light, an award-winning outdoor landscape light from Hinkley Lighting that relies on Resilience™ LS technology. This rigid vinyl formulation is designed to provide low maintenance performance and long-lasting color in outdoor settings.
Low Maintenance Performance for Landscape Lights
Landscape lighting manufacturers have historically shied away from polymers due to the challenges of temperature extremes and weather exposure in outdoor settings. Hinkley decided to explore the possibilities of creating their it’s polymer luminaire, the Nuvi light, and worked with PolyOne to find options. The recently launched Resilience™ LS material was chosen for its long-term color hold, UV stability and thin-wall 5VA flame retardance, more than meeting technical requirements for the Nuvi light. Rigid vinyl’s inherent flame retardance and UV resistance minimize the need for additives, reducing expense while maintaining protection for the LEDs, electronics and aesthetics.
