FLATLITE® is manufactured using a roll to roll manufacturing process
It is not screen printed like traditional EL. There is no electrical busbar running through the lamp. Electrical connectors can be anywhere on the lamp. Edge to edge illumination. Lamp hundreds of meters long. Very large panels. Cut into any shape with something as basic as scissors. No extra tooling costs. FLATLITE lamp is a UL Recognized component under the UL48 standard for Signage.

Advanced Power Supplies
Compensating Power supplies automatically adjust voltage to extend the life of the lamp. In-depth research into the electrical characteristics of phosphors enables design of circuits that are most the efficient EL drivers. All AC input Power Supplies are UL listed to the UL48 standard for Signage.

Superior Technology
Lower Power Consumption due to efficient foil rear electrode. 'Encapsulated' high quality phosphors are resistant to moisture. ITO outer layer is ink compatible Dupont Melanex film.
