Delhi based Alok Masterbatches has developed a light diffusing (LD) technology by adding a plastic filter in front of the LED fixture. Alok is eyeing to tap the growing light emitting diodes (LED) industry with its innovative products that help reduce the harmful effect of this energy-efficient lighting source on eyes, as per Business Standard.
A recent study revealed that exposure to LED lights can cause irreparable harm to the human eye - specifically the retina - because the light emitted from an LED lamp can be too harsh and bright, if there is no protective shield. As per research studies, 90% of the LED lamps available in India do not have protective filters/screens.
“LDA is an outcome of our Alok Technology Incubation Centre (ATIC) in collaboration with CIPET. We are producing LDA masterbatches for commercial purpose,” informed Vikram Bhadauria, director, Alok Masterbatches.
