With LED lighting progressively replacing all other types of lighting,
most luminaire manufacturers have expanded their portfolio of LED lights or completely
switched to LEDs.
LEDs are much more energy efficient compared to the older fluorescent
lights and incandescent light bulbs, but they are also more sensitive to
certain substances such as sulphur. LED lights must avoid any sulphur content as
free sulphur could react with the silver in the LED, causing an adverse effect on
the LED and shortening its lifespan.
The TSS grommet by TST is manufactured in TPE and is highly recommended
for manufacturers of luminaires, as sulphur is not a component intentionally
added in the raw material production process nor is it expected to be generated
during the product manufacturing process.
TSS has been very well received within the lighting industry not only
because of the material, but also because of its attractive design, features
Like all other TST products, the TSS has a pop-out membrane, leaving a
sealed and waterproof installation until it is penetrated by a cable. It can
also be used as an end-plug and is one of the very few approved for IP67.
The TSS is extremely flexible and handles a very wide range of cable
diameters. TSS is designed to be fixed securely in the opening, even when
larger cables are installed. Since the material is soft, it is ideal to use on
curved surfaces, as it will adapt to the shape of the surface.
