A transparent substrate with an electroluminescent element are obvious constituents of electroluminescent panel. The electroluminescent element is covered by a moisture proof sheet which includes two resin films that laminates the metal layer between them. The moisture proof sheet consist of a moisture absorbent powder. The powder rests between the electroluminescent element and the moisture proof sheet. The dual protection of the electroluminescent material from moisture helps the element to work properly and it also imparts stability. The transparent substrate serves an important role as it adheres the periphery of the moisture proof sheet. These electroluminescent panels are mostly thin and flexible with no break in filament. Moreover, it hardly generates any heat and the 0.4 ounces/sq. foot weighing panel is easy to get dimmed.
Variety of electroluminescent panel
There are also variety of panels as well in the form of split electrode electroluminescent panel and parallel code electroluminescent panel. The split electrode panel acts superbly when used as a back light source specially for signs. It is so because as a small center of light it won’t detract from the graphic. Moreover, it also won’t detract even where there is a need of long length strips for different types of lighting like the accent lighting or area illumination. One can avail the split electrode in lengths ranging to as much as hundred feet.
Parallel electrode panels differs from split electrode panels as it possess a front electrode along with a opaque electrode at the rear. However, it has no canter line and it is best best suited for back lighting of photographs, fine arts which can’t afford to have even a small line.
Uses of panels
The electroluminescent panels have a variety of uses as it is used in tabletop furniture as well as architectural accent lighting. It is also used in a light box a s well as X-rays and specimens. Such a variety of uses really makes it a prized possession.
