Crystal IS Launches Klaran LA

Crystal IS, a subsidiary of Asahi Kasei based in Green Island, New York, has launched Klaran LA® – the newest addition to its Germicidal UVC LED product line. Klaran LA’s performance has been achieved via enhanced in-house product innovation and features a more efficient lower forward voltage.

The Klaran product line leverages the properties of Crystal IS’ Aluminum Nitride to provide premium germicidal UVC LEDs and associated modules to treat water, air and surfaces for healthcare, consumer appliances and commercial water treatment.

Crystal IS, an Asahi Kasei company and ISO 9001:2015 certified, is in the business of development and commercialization of aluminum nitride substrates. Aluminum nitride’s wider bandgap capability means that devices grown on aluminum nitride can more effectively emit at the deeper ultraviolet (UVC) wavelengths than devices grown on sapphire. Crystal IS products are used to produce high-performance UVC LEDs for environmental monitoring and disinfection in a variety of applications that enhance and sustain life and living around the world.
