Luminus and Current Chemicals Sign KSF Phosphor Licensing Agreement

December 19, 2022

Luminus and Current Chemicals, a division of Current, announced today that the two parties have signed a KSF phosphor licensing agreement enabling worldwide use of TriGain® PFS (commonly known as KSF) phosphor in Luminus LED products. The agreement provides Luminus with a substantial advantage over competitors who use KSF from other suppliers, as TriGain® PFS provides best in class efficacy, lumen maintenance, moisture resistance, and stability over temperature and current. Building on a reputation for the industry’s best quality of light and LED efficacy, Luminus blended this TriGain® phosphor with a robust bill of materials in the company’s California R&D labs to enable higher CRI, higher R9 values, color stability, and lumen maintenance over a wide range of operating conditions.

In the coming weeks, Luminus will be launching new COBs and midpower LEDs with 90+ and 95+ CRI with high efficacy that would normally be expected from an 80 CRI LED. Paired with Luminus’ incredibly smooth, consistent spectrum, optimized lumen/watt performance and lively, vibrant warm tones without the greenish tint, these new LED products will be ideal solutions for retail lighting, hospitality, and other commercial applications.

Tom Jory, VP of Illumination Marketing at Luminus adds, “We compared TriGain® PFS with other KSF products on the market, and the choice became crystal clear that only Current’s material, combined with our LED packaging expertise, will provide our customers with amazing efficacy, the highest level of stability and fabulous color rendering across the spectrum. This is especially important in Europe, where commercial lighting customers are reducing energy consumption and being rewarded with rebates without having to sacrifice quality of light.”
