SEOUL, South Korea, Sept. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- LG Innotek today announced that it will participate in 'LED Japan 2017', an exhibition held in Makuhari Messe in Chiba, Japan between Oct. 4 and Oct. 6. It intends to show its unique UV LEDs to customers in Japan to make inroads into the Japanese market.

'LED Japan' is an exhibition of special LEDs, not regular LEDs, used for sterilization and for medical and manufacturing purposes. The exhibition boasts the biggest scale in Japan, and approx. 300 companies participate in the exhibition to introduce their latest technologies and products.

At 'LED Japan 2017', LG Innotek will show approx. 30 kinds of UV LED packages optimized based on UV wavelength and optical power as well as modules for sterilization developed with the company's proprietary technologies.

At this exhibition, LG Innotek will introduce a UV LED sterilizer for escalator handrails for the first time in Japan. The product emits a light of 275 - 278 nm to destroy germ DNA, killing the germs on the escalator handrail.

This product can sterilize germs for the whole duration of escalator operation and is easy to install and manage, drawing positive attention from customers. Since the product was launched in Korea and China last July, it has been installed in approx. 30 places, including shopping malls, hospitals, and airports.

In addition, LG Innotek will show UV-C LED modules for sterilization that can be installed in home appliances including water purifiers, air purifiers, etc. The company will also show a cork sterilization module, which was installed in LG Electronics' "PuriCare Slim Updown Direct Water Purifier" and was acknowledged for its performance and quality. The module, unlike Mercury UV lamps, doesn't generate harmful heavy metals and does not break easily due to its durability.

In addition to the UV LEDs for sterilization, LG Innotek will also show UV-A LEDs of 365, 385, 395, 405, and 415 nm that are used in the curing equipment of manufacturing facilities. Curing is a process that hardens coating agents, adhesives, etc. or dries inks. Also, the company will show a UV-B LED of 305 nm, which is gaining attention as an LED for biotechnology and for medical purpose.

A representative from the company said, "We will prove our competitiveness with innovative products with high-power, high-reliability UV LEDs that exceed the expectations of customers."
