The PRIMO® XT N385 gloss/gloss 5mm is an opal sheet with a two-sided gloss surface. This opal sheet has a very high diffusity, creating a diffuse light result on a small distance from the light source.
The PRIMO® XT N385 gloss/gloss has a two-sided gloss surface. The diffuser is 5mm thick and has a light transmission of 23%. The light transmission refers to the amount of light that comes through the diffuser. It is measured on the other side of the light diffuser than where the light source is positioned. The diffusivity, a score that refers to how well the light is scattered, is 0.91. That gives the PRIMO® XT N385 5mm has a distance factor of 1.1. This means that the distance between the diffuser and the leds needs to be 1.1 times larger than the distance between the led strips or led button cells themselves to get a nice and diffuse light result.
The PRIMO® XT N385 diffusers are part of our collection with standard diffusers. These diffusers are the classic, 30% light transmission (opal) sheets and fit well with classic light sources and situations with plenty of space between diffuser and light source. They are good diffusers in relationship to their price. Do you need a diffuser that is more efficient and keeps more of the light, please check our professional and advanced light diffusers.
These professional and advanced diffusers are more efficient than the standard (opal) sheets. Efficiency refers to how well a diffuser performs. It is a measurement that combines the light transmission and the diffusivity. An efficient diffuser costs more to purchase, but earns itself back by saving energy and increasing the light output.
The PRIMO® XT N385 is made from extruded acrylic. Light diffusers from extruded acrylic have good to excellent light technical properties and can be fabricated easily. The material is quite vandal proof, UV-stable and colourfast. It can be safely used outside, the colour doesn’t change when exposed to the sun. The fire classification of cast acrylic is E according to fire norm EN 13501. This is the European (EU) classification.
Extrusion is a continuous process, creating large batches per production run. This makes the material cheaper than cast acrylic, but it is also less flexible. Our assortment is less broad, because the minimum batch per production run is large. An additional benefit of this production method is the minimum thickness tolerance, compared to cast acrylic.
The PRIMO® XT N385 with two-sided gloss surface in 5mm thickness is in stock in sheet size 3050mm x 2050mm. If you need a smaller size for your application, we gladly offer material cut to size.
If you need a diffuser that can be placed close to a light source, the PRIMO® XT N385 gloss/gloss 5mm is a great choice. With the minimum amount of thickness tolerance and excellent light technical properties of extruded acrylic, this diffuser can be applied in many situations. The PRIMO® XT N385 can be used for light fixtures, displays, signing, profiles and window frames. Barfronts, signing and other esthetic applications are also possible. Because the material is UV stable and the colour is not influenced by the sun, you can safely use the sheet inside and outside.
Are you looking for a diffuser that transfers more of the emitted light? Then the PyraLed® YT290 1,5mm or the PRIMO® XT N381 2mm are better options. These diffusers need a bit more distance from the light source to spread the light diffusely, but it transfers more of the light.
For constructive applications like floors, walls and full bars and desks, we recommend a thicker diffuser, like our PyraLed®3 10mm or the PyraLed® OPY3 satin/satin 10mm. These diffusers are made from cast acrylic.
Looking for inspiration? Please check our Acrylic community. You can find many applications with light diffusers. There are also many other applications with acrylic on the platform.
