Diffuse lighting with LED strips / modules

What happens when you need to use low cost efficient LED strips, but the lighting effect is too rigid or raw?

The situation now with waterproof LED strips is the colour consistency, durability of the strips changes over time. It may crack, turn yellow, thus affecting the LED light output.

Generally, the market uses Epoxy resin due to cost advantages. But, it has the above problems. We normally use silicon covers to eliminate the above problem with the strips. This cost about S$1.00- S$2.00 more per meter.


As we progress deeper in our lighting consultancy, we found a POLYURETHANE RESIN material that may assist to value add client's project further.

This material UR5634 and UR5635 can be clear or hazy respectively. They are RoHS-2 compliant and resistant to weather, UV light, acids, alkalis, water and mould. It may well be the next waterproofing solution for outdoor lightings and equipments. Finally, its additional value comes from using it to achieve a desired diffuse lighting effect.

We'll try to test and see if something fruitful may appear to better benefit our clients in the near future!

IASPL top picks for interior design Mar15 (Purple colour)


Purple used to be the colour reserved for only the Roman emperor and the Gods. These days it is associated closely to a manhattan theme interior decor. 


By revolving around simplicity, easy for anyone to re-create, easy for maintenance, we shortlisted the following ideas below;
1. Purple furniture is simple direct and easy to create a change instantly
2. Having a feature wall in purple requires selecting suitable designs and knowing the colours and furnitures of the environment.
3. It is not necessary to always have solid colour base. Look at picture 4 where purple is used to create a floating sensation on the wall. Adding colours to your surfaces often gives a liberating feeling to the home owners.

Let us see how this royal and intriguing colour can add a touch of class to your home.

Benefits of using royal purple for walls;

1. Elegant and sophisticated sense of taste.

2. Allow art pieces / paintings to blend in nicely with the wall.

3. Goes well with gold, white, black and grey. Although we usually recommend bolder colours contrast for a refreshing vibe. E.g. we can have bright yellow beside the purple. You will be amaze how uniquely it fits in!

4. Easy maintenance since you won't really see much dirt on the dark purple base.
