ClearBrite® Finish

Infinite possibilities in aluminum finishing solutions

Description

In choosing material for louver and reflector-style lighting systems, it’s only appropriate to make an enlightened decision. Coil-anodized aluminum from Lorin Industries is that decision –because it performs beautifully in those applications and for solar concentrator panels as well - both on the job, and on the bottom line.

 

Lorin’s ClearBrite® finish was developed to provide lighting designers with a lower cost specular finish that has a total reflectance greater than 85% minimum and for applications needing stringent forming requirements.
