PHOSPHOR MATERIALS

We produce key components for the manufacture of LED phosphors!

Materion manufactures phosphor precursor compounds for both the host materials and activators. We maximize the shelf life of phosphor materials with optimal moisture protection and meticulous packing.

Phosphor materials contribute to the substances that exhibit luminescence in  LED lighting. Our calcium, barium and strontium pre-cursor compounds are key in converting blue light-emitting diodes into white light emission.
