Bayer Materialscience's Polycarbonate Portfolio Helps Bring Innovative, Attractive and Energy-effici

Santa Clara, CA, February 13, 2013 --(PR.com)-- The lighting industry is always seeking to bring new, innovative, attractive and energy-efficient products to market. Bayer MaterialScience LLC's portfolio of polycarbonate plastics, sheet and films, backed by outstanding technical expertise, helps lighting designers and OEMs do just that.

Bayer will showcase its expertise and polycarbonate product line for lighting applications at its booth #401 during Strategies in Light 2013, Feb. 12-14, in Santa Clara, Calif. Here's a sneak peek.

Polycarbonate Plastics --Makrolon[R] 6265X polycarbonate plastic: With molded-in color, this grade allows for high optical efficiency while delivering diffused reflectivity for a wide variety of applications. This material, listed by Underwriters Laboratories (UL) with a UL 94 V-0 rating at 1.5 mm, was used to produce a high-performing LED Troffer Reflector featuring 12 LEDs for Fraen's Optics Division.

--Makrolon LED2643 polycarbonate plastic: Bayer developed this grade of polycarbonate plastic to improve light transmission and stability to heat and high flux for LED light sources. It is an impact-resistant material that is UL listed and has achieved an f1 rating, making it suitable for wet outdoor applications. AURA[TM] UV infusion technology can extend the product life of lenses, covers and transparent enclosures by improving the retention of color, clarity and optical properties.

--Makrolon FR7087 polycarbonate plastic: This material is distinguished by its clarity. In fact, it is believed to be the first transparent polycarbonate that is UL 94 flame rated 5VA at 3.0 mm.

Applications include lenses, covers and electrical enclosures where clarity really counts. TerraGlo used Makrolon FR7087 polycarbonate when it needed an optically clear material that met stringent guidelines for the 3-mm thick lens cover of its Alba Series luminaires.

--Makrolon TC8030 polycarbonate plastic: Manufacturers use this thermally conductive grade to replace aluminum for heat-sink applications in LED replacement lamps and next-generation luminaires.

The benefits of Makrolon TC8030 plastic include corrosion resistance, weight savings, and greater design freedom. Makrolon TC8030 polycarbonate has a UL 94 flame class rating of V-0 at 2.0 mm and is also f1 listed.

Polycarbonate Sheet --Makrolon Lumen XT sheet: Specifically developed for diffusion lenses in LED lighting fixtures, this material diffuses light uniformly, while minimizing hot spots and resisting high temperatures with a UL 94 V-2 flammability rating. It also offers the impact resistance of Bayer polycarbonate for applications in damage-prone areas.

Due to its light-diffusion properties, Makrolon Lumen XT was chosen for lighting in the concourse food service area at U.S. Cellular Field, home of the Chicago White Sox. LED lighting fixtures featuring Makrolon Lumen XT replaced outdated T12 fluorescent lights to save energy and maintenance costs.

Polycarbonate Films --Makrofol[R] light management polycarbonate film grades: LM228, LM309, and LM905. These translucent materials are filled with a light-scattering agent in combination with a surface texture that offers various combinations of transmission and diffusion to meet end users' light guidance and light reflection needs. Light diffusers for consumer goods and other backlight displays commonly utilize these film grades.

--Makrofol LM296 polycarbonate film: This grade is custom made for use in applications utilizing "black panel" technology. It allows light transmission at defined wave lengths through different thicknesses of film. The thickness, surface, and wave length of light transmission are highly toleranced. The grade is used for automotive instrument clusters and related center stack applications.

--Makrofol LM903 polycarbonate film: This is a formable, opaque white extruded film that offers the very high light reflection properties needed for LCD and LED backlights and other reflector housing applications.

Knowledge About Viewing Point | Supernode (circuit) of Viewing Point
Supernode (circuit) of viewing pointIn circuit theory, a supernode is a theoretical construct that can be used to solve a circuit. This is done by viewing a voltage source on a wire as a point source voltage in relation to other point voltages located at various nodes in the circuit, relative to a ground node assigned a zero or negative charge.Each supernode contains two nodes, one non-reference node and another node that may be a second non-reference node or the reference node. Supernodes containing the reference node have one node voltage variable. For nodal analysis, the supernode construct is only required between two non-reference nodes.------Yokah Tower of viewing pointYokah Tower is an observation tower within El Yunque National Forest on the island of Puerto Rico.The Yokah Tower is one of the two observation towers located in the park and is at an elevation of 1,575 feet. Constructed in 1963, it is widely considered the better of the two with regard to the view offered. The other tower, Mount Britton Tower, is situated at a higher altitude. Owing to this, the view from it is frequently obscured by cloud cover. When it comes to convenience, Yokah Tower again has an advantage over the Mount Britton Tower. Yokah Tower has a parking lot nearby whereas the Britton Tower is in the middle of the forest.------Current features of viewing pointThe Cape Henry Memorial commemorates The First Landing of the settlers that established Jamestown.

Alternate German names include Mrtesdorf and Mertesdorf. In Latin records, it is called Villa Morteni.It was first mentioned in 1319 as the property of Saxon counts Niklaus and Johann von Talmisch. In 1415 Mortesdorf was first called by its sole German name "Gemeinde Martin". Serfdom was abolished in 1848. Saxons made up the majority of the village population for centuries until the 1980s. The community emigrated en masse, chiefly to Germany; at that point, Romanians and Roma became dominant. By 2006, just one Transylvanian Saxon resided in the village.------Gallery of viewing pointThe following images, detail the surrounding area, including the village of Balmacara, the bay, and those views from the bay.Beinn na Caillich from the slipway at Kyle RheaBalmacara Bay.Balmacara Bay from the sunken garden at the Scottish National Trust property.Ard Hill across Balmacara Bay, Loch Alsh, Scotland.

This generally follows the body or perhaps an afterword, and the conclusion may be followed by an epilogue, outro, postscript, appendix/addendum, glossary, bibliography, index, errata, or a colophon. Aristotle, in The Rhetoric, tells us a good writer should do this in the conclusion: "make the audience well-disposed towards ourselves and ill-disposed to our opponent." It's a good opportunity to make inferences or predictions, or to ask the audience to consider what would happen if they do not accept our point of view by making a connection to society in general------Coal mining of viewing pointParasia is known as the "Coal Mines Belt".
