Improve your UV and lighting systems with highly reflective media

Our portfolio of highly reflective materials is ideal for UV and lighting systems. Available in sheet or three-dimensional shapes, our POREX® Virtek™ PTFE materials are over 97% reflective. 

Using our materials assures your UV and lighting systems meet the highest quality standards with:

  • Outstanding reflectance demonstrated by an average total reflectance of over 97% down to 210nm.
  • High-temperature performance, with a working temperature of up to 260ºC.
  • Lambertian reflectance at nearly 100%.

Ultraviolet (UV) Reflectors

Maximize performance with UV reflectors

For ultraviolet light reflectivity, manufacturers trust our POREX® Virtek™ sintered PTFE sheets and molded 3-D parts. With over 97% average reflectance from 250nm to 400nm, POREX Virtek™ pure PTFE reflectors can maximize disinfection rates and minimize system cost.

Specifically designed for UV systems, our UV reflectors:

  • Eliminate hot and cold spots – POREX® Virtek™ PTFE scatters light in all directions, spreading UV light evenly across a surface and eliminating cold spots where bacteria may survive.
  • Maximize lighting efficacy – With over 97% average reflectance from 220nm to 400nm, less light is lost to absorption.
  • Maintain performance in high temperatures – Working temperature of POREX Virtek™ PTFE is 260ºC.

Specialty Lighting Reflectors

High-performing reflectors for specialty reflectivity applications

Specialty lighting applications require high-performing reflectors, that efficiently mix and diffuse light. Our POREX Virtek™specialty lighting reflectors:

  • Eliminate hot and cold spots – POREX® Virtek™ PTFE scatters light in multiple directions, spreading and mixing the light evenly across a surface and eliminating hot spots and increasing color uniformity.
  • Maximize lighting efficacy – With over 97% average average reflectance over the entire light spectrum, our reflective material captures wasted light and delivers it to the lighting task.
  • Maintain performance in high temperatures – Working temperature of POREX Virtek™ PTFE is 260ºC.

Instrumentation & Testing

Instrumentation and Testing

Improve lighting performance with reflective media

For instrumentation and testing systems, our POREX Virtek™ sintered PTFE sheets and molded 3-D parts offer multi-directional light, ideal for machine vision systems and integrating spheres where uniformly lighting surfaces of different geometries is a must.

Constructed with outstanding reflectance, POREX Virtek™ PTFE:

  • Minimizes glare, with its 100% Lambertian reflection of light.
  • Supports itself when handled – Does not require a backing or support scrim for handling.
  • Supports versatile assembly options – Heat staking or vibrational welding can be used to secure the POREX Virtek™ PTFE to the lighting or housing structure.
