Numerous studies have shown that the blue LED light can be harmful to health. It hurts our eyes causing retinal damage and it also disturbs our sleep as blue LED light suppresses the production of the hormone melatonin, which is important for healthy and restful sleep. The Sunvue technology developed and patented by BASF solves these problems. "BASF's Sunvue technology represents a paradigm shift in LED lighting. The technology offers an energy-efficient, bright and comfortable lighting solution which is close to natural sunlight," says Lothar Laupichler, Senior Vice President of BASF's Global Electronic Materials Business. Based on an organic light conversion material, it is possible to change the light of conventional LEDs and adapt it optimally for different applications. This allows light waves to be selectively shifted without negatively affecting efficiency, as is the case with conventional filtering of unwanted light.
The Dispersions & Pigments division of BASF develops, produces and markets a range of high-quality pigments, resins, additives and polymer dispersions worldwide. These raw materials are used in formulations for a number of industries, including coatings, construction, adhesives, printing and packaging, electronics and paper.
