EL Lamps :
EL-inc devises our own custom formulas to create a tailor made binder system for each different application.

Utilizing different binder systems for our lamps, we devise our own custom formulas to create this binder system.

Instead of buying readymade prescriptions available in the market, each formula is tailor made for its intended application, from high efficiency requirement such as small device backlighting, to variable high voltage and current such as animated large format advertisement billboards etc.

Those off the shelf solutions available via the main industry known manufacturer are specialized formulas meant for one purpose only, producing backlights regardless of the actual power input specification.

Panels - New Formula Breakthrough
Brighter - Under basic driving conditions (400 Hertz/ 100V), our new formula BG variety (original colour) panels can achieve a brightness of 130CD, compared to Dupont’s 70CD.

High End Standard
Animated Average Lifespan 10,000 hours 7,000 hours
Backlight Average Lifespan Over 20,000 – 30,000 hours 10,000 hours
Luminance 100++ CD/ M2 70 – 80 CD/ M2
