The Evonik Cristal Materials Corporation joint venture will complement Evonik's strategy as a solution provider to the lighting industry while providing Cristal Material Corporation access to a highly innovative market.
"The LED market will see many new areas of application open up. Evonik Cristal Materials Corporation will help its customers develop new technologies faster, technologies such as UV LEDs to sterilize water, LEDs in automobiles, and LEDs for general lighting," said Patrik Wohlhauser, chairman of Evonik Degussa GmbH's management board. "Participating in the joint venture offers Evonik an attractive opportunity for forward integration along the entire supply chain in the growing LED market," added Wohlhauser. The lenses produced by the joint venture will be sold to LED manufacturers.
The LED lenses will be produced using Evonik's patented SiVARA™ Sol-Gel technology, which allows glass lenses of consistent quality to be manufactured in any desired shape. The process recently received the Frost and Sullivan European Technology Innovation Award.
