The PyraLed®5 matte/satin in 4mm thickness is a well balanced diffuser with a decent level of diffusivity and a high light transmission. This makes the amount of light lost when applying this diffuser relatively small. It is made with UV protection, allowing you to safely use the diffuser outside.
The PyraLed®5 matte/satin has a one-sided matte and a one-sided satin surface. The diffuser is 4mm thick and has a light transmission of 52%. 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 0.73. That gives the PyraLed®5 a distance factor of 1.4. This means that the distance between the diffuser and the leds needs to be 1.4 times larger than the distance between the led strips or led button cells themselves to get a nice and diffuse light result.
The PyraLed®5 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®5 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®5 in 4mm thickness is in stock in sheet size 3050mm x 1250mm. If you need a smaller size for your application, we gladly offer material cut to size.
The PyraLed®5 4mm is a well balanced diffuser, offering a high level of light transmission and good diffusivity. The combination of one-sided matte and one-sided satin surface is unique in our assortment. So if you are looking for an efficient diffuser, this sheet is a great choice. And with the minimum amount of thickness tolerance and the impact resistance of polycarbonate, this diffuser can be applied in many circumstances. You can use the PyraLed®5 4mm 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 PyraLed®5 has UV protection, allowing you to use the diffuser inside and outside without risk.
Are you looking for a diffuser in our professional diffuser category that offers a higher level of diffusivity? Then the PyraLed® AR42 UV 4mm is a good alternative. This diffuser has a two-sided gloss surface and combines the lower light transmission with a very high diffusivity. Because of this, the AR42 UV spreads the light evenly on a short distance from 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®5 matte/satin 4mm 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®5 diffuser are sawing, milling, bonding, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing.
