The SetaLed 17000 gloss/gloss 3mm is a light diffuser made from cast acrylic. It offers a good balance between diffusivity and light transmission.
The SetaLed 17000 3mm has a two-sided gloss surface, is 3mm thick and with a diffusivity of 0.71 it spreads the light well on a short distance from the light source. The diffusivity is a score that refers to how well the diffuser scatters the light. Because of the high diffusity, the distance factor is just 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 light transmission of the SetaLed 17000 is 59%. 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 SetaLed 17000 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 or increasing the light output.
The SetaLed 17000 is made from cast acrylic. Light diffusers from cast acrylic have the best light technical properties and are optically clear, UV-stable and colourfast. Because of this, the diffusers can be used inside and outside and the colour will not be influenced by the sun. The fire classification of cast acrylic is E according to fire norm EN 13501. This is the European (EU) classification.
Cast acrylic can be produced in smaller batches relatively easy. This allows us to offer the broadest collection of thicknesses and types in cast acrylic.
The SetaLed 17000 with a two-sided gloss surface in 3mm thickness is in stock in sheet size 3050mm x 2030mm. If you need a smaller size for your application, we gladly offer material cut to size.
If you are looking for a well balanced diffuser, one that combines good diffusivity and a high level of light transmission, the SetaLed 17000 is a great choice. And since cast acrylic has excellent light technical properties, this diffuser can be used in many circumstances. You can use the 3mm version of the SetaLed 17000 with two-sided gloss surface for barfronts, signing, decors, displays and other esthetic applications. Because the material is UV stable and the colour is not influenced by the sun, you can safely apply the sheet inside and outside.
For constructive applications like floors, walls and full bars and desks, a thicker diffuser is more suited, like the PyraLed®3 10mm satin/satin.
Cast acrylic has thickness tolerance, making it less suitable for the use in light fixtures and profiles. Extruded acrylic (XT) has minimum thickness tolerance, making it a perfect match for these applications. A higher level of diffusivity is also necessary, given the lower distance between light source and diffuser in a light fixture. The PRIMO® XT N385 3mm with a light transmission of 29% and a diffusivity of 0.88 has a low distance factor and is well suited for light fixtures.
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.
Diffusers made from cast acrylic contain less tension than diffusers from extruded acrylic. The SetaLed 17000 is made from cast acrylic and can be fabricated easily.
PyraSied has more than 30 years of experience in fabricating acrylic 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 acrylic yourself, often with the same tools used for wood fabricating. Fabrication options for the SetaLed 17000 diffuser are lasering, sawing, milling, bonding, drilling, faceting, polishing, sanding and printing.
