Stage 1: Gas-filled high-pressure luminescence of glass tube
The neon light first appeared at the French exhibition in 1910. At that time, the neon light was bright and luminous, filled with rare neon gas or other electrified glass tubes or bulbs, and was a kind of cold cathode gas discharge lamp. The gas in the ionization tube emits light by applying a voltage of several thousand volts to the electrode. The color of light depends on the gases in the tube, such as hydrogen (red), helium (yellow), carbon dioxide (white), and mercury vapor (blue).
Because of the complex process, high production cost and inconvenient transportation and installation of traditional neon lamp, the emergence of LED technology has completely changed the material and production process of neon lamp. From 2003 to 2006, the flexible neon lamp adopts a new structure and LED technology. The bright LED light bulb is wrapped in a special PVC shell. The special optical technology and special shell design not only increase the intensity and uniformity of light, but also improve the delivery process and production efficiency.
LED flexible neon lamp is a professional linear lighting decoration product. Although it does not look different from ordinary neon lamp, it can bend arbitrarily. It has the function of anti-shattering and water-proof, and can be used both inside and outside the house.
3: Current stage and development trend: LED flexible neon lamp (silicone extrusion)
Around 2015, waterproof LED neon flex with silicone extrusion process appeared on the market, which provided a new production process for the manufacture of flexible neon LED silicone. Due to the fatal defects of PVC materials, such as irritating odor, yellowing resistance, easy breakage, etc., silicone gel is used to replace PVC in the market to produce flexible silicone neon flex for LED. Silicone has many advantages that PVC does not have: environment-friendly, non-toxic, high and low temperature resistance, acid and alkali resistance, UV yellowing resistance, flexibility, long life, good transmittance.... It is only a matter of time before LED flexible silicone neon lamp replaces LED flexible PVC neon lamp.
With the continuous development of the industry, under the wise decision of the company, Wilgex ushered in its own silicone lamp belt production line: a new silicone machine back in the factory! In the near future, this kind of silicone lamp belt with high softness, flexibility and many advantages will surely bring new experience to customers.
