This article focuses on the Tetra Contour LED Lighting System from GELcore LLC., a joint venture of General Electric Co. and EMCORE Corp. The system was developed to resemble and replace exposed neon in a variety of signage, architectural and accent lighting applications, including border lighting, open-face channel letters, accent lighting, art and light sculpture and cove lighting. The weather-resistant system consists of a rigid, optically diffuse extruded-plastic light guide that can be heated and formed in a shop or on the job site, and a flexible GELcore light engine that fits snugly inside the light guide.
