"The global market for LED lighting has not lost momentum – either in terms of growth or competitiveness – and Dow Corning is as committed as ever to giving an innovative edge to its worldwide LED lighting customers," said Hugo da Silva, global industry director for LED lighting at Dow Corning. "Our proactive collaboration with industry leaders continues to anticipate and address emerging design challenges for the next-generation of LED illumination, and put Dow Corning customers ahead of the curve as they develop ever more efficient, reliable and cost-effective LED lamps and luminaries."

Among the key attractions at Dow Corning's booth was the opportunity to get an early and exclusive look at Dow Corning® MS-4002 Moldable Silicone. Planned for launch later this year, the material signals the latest advance in the company's award-winning Moldable Silicone portfolio. Currently still in development and testing, Dow Corning® MS-4002 Moldable Silicone is designed to deliver a smooth surface feel, faster cure and higher optical transmission for secondary optics in LED lamp and luminaire applications.

As one of the global leaders in silicone innovation and technology, Dow Corning is changing the game for LED design, and the company showed exactly how during Light+Building 2016. The booth featured the company's broad and growing range of emerging and proven solutions in three demonstration areas. These include:
