Top Bend LED Neon Strip

What is Top Bend LED Neon Strip?

Top Bend LED Neon Strip, also known as top view or vertical bend LED neon strip, is a type of flexible LED neon strip designed to bend along the vertical axis. This design feature allows it to be shaped and contoured in ways that traditional neon lighting can’t, making it highly suitable for custom signage, architectural features, and decorative lighting.

Unlike traditional glass neon tubes, these LED neon strips are typically made from durable, flexible silicone materials. This construction allows for safe and easy installation in various indoor and outdoor settings. The top bend capability refers explicitly to the strip’s ability to bend upwards or downwards (like a “smile” or “frown”) as opposed to bending side to side.

These strips usually come in various colors, voltages, and levels of water resistance (indicated by IP ratings like IP67 or IP68). They can be cut to length and connected to a power supply, making them versatile for different projects. The LED technology also makes them more energy-efficient, longer-lasting, and less prone to breakage than traditional neon lighting.

What Sets Unitop’s Top Bend LED Neon Strips Apart? Exceptional Quality and Versatility

Vertical Flexibility

Top bend LED neon flex can bend vertically, allowing for unique designs and shapes that traditional LED strips can’t achieve. This feature is ideal for creating curves, waves, and other intricate patterns in lighting designs.

Made from quality silicone from Dow Corning from US, these neon strips are more durable and safer than traditional glass neon. They are less prone to breakage and don’t get as hot, reducing the risk of injury and damage.

1. Resistance to Saline Solutions: It withstands exposure to saltwater environments.
2. Acid & Alkali Resistance: Maintains integrity when exposed to acidic or basic substances.
3. Resistance to Corrosive Gases: Durable in environments with harsh gases.
4. Fire Resistance: Offers a degree of fire retardancy.
5. UV Resistance: Withstands ultraviolet light without degrading.

Fully-automatic three-color silicone extrusion process further improves the reliability of the strips.

In the extrusion process, we have put an anti-breakage sheet down the LED strip. This will prevent LED strips from breaking down.

LED technology consumes significantly less energy than traditional neon lighting, lowering electricity bills and reducing carbon footprint. LEDs have a longer lifespan than traditional neon tubes, often lasting tens of thousands of hours, which reduces the need for frequent replacements and maintenance.

With high IP ratings like IP67 or IP68, top bend LED neon flex is resistant to water and weather conditions, making it suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications.

They come in various colors, including white, tunable white, RGB, RGBW options, offering flexibility in design and the ability to create dynamic, multi-colored lighting effects controlled via remote or controller.

LED Neon Strips Production Process

Excellence in Manufacturing: Crafting Perfection in Every Product

  • Step 1: Precision Solder Paste Application on PCB

    Precise lengths of PCB sheets, typically 0.5m, are aligned under a durable stainless steel stencil. Here, lead-free solder paste is meticulously applied to create perfect soldering pads, a process adaptable for both automated large orders and manual small-scale production. A meticulous quality control process ensures optimal solder paste distribution at every solder point.

  • Step 2: Accurate SMT Components Placement

    Each PCB sheet is then processed through an advanced SMT machine, which places components with exceptional precision. This step is critical for ensuring the flawless functionality of the LED neon strips, with each solder point receiving careful alignment and pressure. A thorough quality inspection follows, addressing any component misplacements.

  • Step 3: Reflow Soldering for Component Security

    The next stage solidifies the components onto the PCB, which is achieved through a controlled reflow soldering process. The PCBs pass through a multi-zoned reflow oven, ensuring the solder paste solidifies effectively. The LED functionality is rigorously inspected post-soldering, with any non-conforming PCBs undergoing rework or manual adjustments.

  • Step 4: Assembling Long LED Strips

    Subsequently, the 0.5m PCB sheets are skillfully joined to create continuous 5-meter LED neon strips. Each strip undergoes stringent quality checks, including a comprehensive 12-hour burn-in test, ensuring consistent lighting quality and longevity.

  • Step 5: Colorful Silicone Mixing

    To enhance the aesthetic appeal of LED neon strips, high-quality silicone is mixed to produce various hues, such as milky white for light diffusion, white for light blocking, and transparent for marking cutting positions. The diffusion powder's proportion directly influences the color intensity and light transmission.

  • Step 6: LED Strip Installation and Precision Adjustment

    The LED strips are carefully placed on a payoff frame and meticulously adjusted on an alignment table, ensuring perfect organization and set up for the extrusion process.

  • Step 7: Advanced Silicone Wrapping with Electronic Control

    This innovative step combines LED strips with silicone through a precise die and electronic control mechanism, ensuring seamless and uniform silicone wrapping around the LED strip.

  • Step 8: Vulcanization and Oven Shaping

    The silicone-wrapped LED strips undergo vulcanization in a specialized oven, ensuring they are appropriately shaped and cured without damaging the LED beads.

  • Step 9: Custom Cable Soldering and End Cap Installation

    Tailoring to diverse customer needs, various cable lengths and entry points are soldered onto the LED neon strips, with appropriate end caps installed for waterproofing.

  • Step 10: Comprehensive Quality Inspection

    Each LED neon light undergoes extensive testing, covering brightness, electrical performance, durability, waterproofing, temperature resistance, aesthetics, safety compliance, and specific performance benchmarks, ensuring each product meets the highest quality standards.

  • Step 11: Personalized Laser Engraving

    As part of our OEM/ODM services, we offer customized laser engraving on the silicone body of the LED neon strips, including brand logos and product information.

  • Step 12: Secure Product Packaging

    Finally, the LED neon strips are carefully rolled, packaged in anti-static bags or custom packaging as per client requirements, and securely placed in cartons for shipping.
