The PyraLed® AR71 UV gloss/gloss 3mm diffuser is an efficient diffuser with an excellent light transmission and a decent diffusivity. It is produced with UV protection, allowing you to use the diffuser safely outside.
The PyraLed® AR71 UV gloss/gloss has a two-sided gloss surface. The diffuser is 3mm thick and has a light transmission of 65%. 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 0.65. That gives the PyraLed® AR71 UV a distance factor of 1.6. This means that the distance between the diffuser and the leds needs to be 1.6 times larger than the distance between the led strips or led button cells themselves to get a nice and diffuse light result.
The PyraLed® AR71 UV diffuser is part of our collection with professional diffusers. With the help of extremely precise process control and the use of nano additives, the professional diffusers are more efficient than standard diffusers. They offer a higher light transmission with the same diffusivity or a higher level of diffusivity with the same light transmission. The light transmission is a measurement of the amount of light transmitted. The diffusivity refers to to how well a diffuser scatters the light. A diffuser that has a higher score on the variable ‘efficiency’ performs better. An efficient diffuser is more expensive to purchase, but earns itself back by saving energy of increasing the light output.
The PyraLed® AR71 UV is made from polycarbonate. This is an extrusion product. Light diffusers made from polycarbonate have a few important benefits in comparison with acrylic. Polycarbonate is very impact resistant, making it well suited for applications where the material has to be vandal-proof, burglary proof or extra safe. Because polycarbonate is an extrusion product, the thickness tolerance of the material is minimal.
Polycarbonate has a good fire classification, bs1d0 according to the European classification EN13501. Because of this high classification, the material may be used in public spaces.
Polycarbonate is not UV stable in itself. But most of the polycarbonate diffusers in our assortment are developed with a UV protective layer, allowing safe use outside. Please check if the chosen diffuser has UV protection when you plan to use the diffuser outside.
The PyraLed® AR71 UV in 3mm 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.
The PyraLed® AR71 UV gloss/gloss is also available in the same sheetsize in 2mm thickness.
The PyraLed® AR71 UV gloss/gloss 3mm is a diffuser that combines a high level of light transmission with good diffusivity. If you’re searching an efficient and well balanced diffuser, this diffuser is a good choice. And with the minimum amount of thickness tolerance and the impact resistance of polycarbonate, this diffuser can be used in many circumstances. You can use the PyraLed® AR71 UV gloss/gloss 3mm for light fixtures, profiles, signing and displays. Barfronts, signing and other esthetic applications are also possible.
Due to the good fire classification of polycarbonate, this diffuser may be used in public spaces. And the AR71 UV has UV protection, allowing you to use the diffuser inside and outside without risk.
Are you looking for a diffuser that can be placed closer to the light source? Then the PyraLed® AR42 UV gloss/gloss 3mm is an excellent alternative. This diffuser offers slightly less light transmission, but can be placed closer to the light source.
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. Diffusers with these thicknesses are not available in polycarbonate.
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.
The PyraLed® AR71 UV gloss/gloss 3mm is made from polycarbonate. Diffusers from polycarbonate can be fabricated easily.
PyraSied has more than 30 years of experience in fabricating polycarbonate and other plastics. With our excellently equipped workshop – where high-tech machinery and traditional craftsmanship ensure high quality – we can supply diffusers made to size. Whether you are looking for a partner for a one-time project or a trustworthy partner for the continious supply of diffusers as part of your supply chain, PyraSied is the right choice.
You can fabricate polycarbonate yourself, often with the same tools used for wood fabricating. Fabrication options for the PyraLed® AR71 UV diffuser are sawing, milling, bonding, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing.
