UV Resistance

Compared to other materials used in photonics applications, silicone can be formulated to resist optical degradation after exposure to UV light.

UV Resistaance

LS-3440 was exposed for multiple hours to a UV "Visible" bulb. The spectral output is described in the following table:

Spectral Band
% of Total Radiation
Visable (40-750 nm)
UVA (320-400 nm)
UVB (280-320 nm)

Temperature Resistance

In addition to optical stability after exposure to UV radiation, silicone can also be formulated to minimize or resist optical degradation due to prolonged exposure to high temperatures.
