The nano-plastic T8 LED tubes from New Lights (XGY) deliver upgraded optical, thermal performance and improved product durability over conventional plastic LED tubes with enhanced economy that meets a wide range of project budgets. Polycarbonate addresses the basic needs of LED lighting with its ability to tolerate long-term heat exposure, offer high transmission across a broad spectrum, and deliver additional benefits such as UV resistance and flame retardancy. Nevertheless, tubular LED lighting systems merely exist as a type of functional products and price to performance ratio is the foremost factor that influences buyer's purchase decision. As one of the functional components of LED tubes, tubular PC lenses suffer from reduced transmission efficiency when a diffusion additive is added to this material to mitigate glare. Their bending stability and thermal performance also remain to be improved.
Nano-plastic tubes offer a superb combination of high light transmission and light diffusion as well as remarkably improved impact strength and bending stability which exceed the physical properties of polycarbonate. The advantages of nano-plastic are rooted in its fine nanostructures that provide evenly scattered penetration with minimal light loss. Nano-plastic tubes diffuse luminous flux from LED light sources to all directions thus does not create pixelation of pinpoint LEDs and eliminates glare from every angle of view. These tubes can achieve up to 92% transmission that is comparable to a transparent polycarbonate lens while delivering superior light diffusion that is comparable to an opal polycarbonate diffuser.
Nano-plastic tubes are formulated with high strength, low thermal expansion coefficient (CTE) resins for improved dimensional and high temperature stability. Excellent rigidity and ductility of lightweight nano-plastic tubes offer twice as much bending endurance than polycarbonate tubes and are less prone to deformation even under long-term heat exposure. Great UV stability allows nano-plastic tubes to provide a lifetime of excellent optical performance without yellowing, embrittlement and fracturing. Nano-plastic tubes offer excellent heat conductivity thanks to the use of thermally efficient additives. The tubes are designed with air convection holes which facilitate natural convection of heat for effective dissipation of thermal energy.
As one of the major cost components of an LED tube, polycarbonate tubes do not have a cost advantage over glass tubes. Nano-plastic tubes have only 0.4-0.5mm thickness as opposed to the 0.8-1mm thickness of PC tubes, which makes it possible to compete with glass LED tubes when it comes to material cost. The glass tube equivalent economy of nano-plastic tubes in conjunction with their unmatched durability, optical and thermal performance allows XGY nano-plastic T8 LED tubes to provide a truly sustainable, cost effective solution for both retrofit applications and new construction projects. These tubes are great choice for illuminating office buildings, warehouses, parking garages, universities, hospitals, and other commercial settings or industrial facilities striving to reduce their carbon footprint and energy cost, without sacrificing on lighting performance.
XGY nano-plastic T8 LED tubes come in 600mm (2ft), 900mm (3ft), 1200mm (4ft), and 1500mm (5ft) lengths with each incorporating 48, 72, 96 and 120 SMD2835 LEDs that operate at 9W, 12W, 18W, and 22W respectively. With a luminous efficacy of up to 120 lm/W, these LED tubes provide equivalent illumination levels of 18-58W linear fluorescent lamps while using use less energy (up to 60% less), lasting much longer (25,000 hours), and requiring virtually zero maintenance. The high efficacy LEDs are operated by a built-in IC-driven constant current driver that meets maximum harmonic distortion (THD) and incorporates power factor correction (PFC) for a minimum power efficiency of 90%.
XGY's LED tubes are not designed to offer top performance at an irrational cost. The company is dedicated to delivering products that bring performance, reliability and economy into balance. This line of products are manufactured by a team of experienced in-house workforce (including 500 skilled workers) in the company's 35,000 square meter facilities. High level of automation and economies of scale enables the manufacturer to deliver quality and value at extremely competitive prices. From raw materials inspection to aging test, the inherent reliability is ensured by rigorous quality control that is carried throughout the entire production process.
XGY takes extra care in packing and offers a choice of packing options to ensure its products will be shipped safely while accommodating clients' needs for customization in packaging, branding and labelling. These products can be packed in 60g paper sleeves, corrugated card boxes, 350g white cardboard boxes, paper tubes, air cushions, or foam racked boxes.
