CeramTec's CeramCool® product is being used by the city of Wunsiedel, Germany to create energy-saving and maintenance-free streetlights. In its product study, the city has found the CeramCool® Streetlight LED units provide optimal operating temperatures and approximately 10,000 additional hours of maintenance-free operations. The ceramic system beats any system made of aluminum due to the directly applied, permanent metallic connection between the LED and heat-sink in terms of heat management, efficiency, lifetime and reliability. The diffuser selected for the CeramCool® Streetlight ensures uniform illumination without unnecessary scattered light. Ceramic is completely resistant to environmental influences, thus making CeramCool® ideal for this kind of outdoor usage. CeramTec GmbH feels its advanced ceramics are ideal for the use in LED lighting technology because Technical Ceramics are both electrically insulating and heat-conducting.
