COB (Chip on board) LED Ribbon is a leading-edge technology that features small LEDs mounted directly onto a flexible circuit conducting strip (PCB). A single line of phosphor runs along the whole length and provides dot-free continuous illumination. COB LED Ribbon has a CRI of >90, which shows more realistic colors and gives a more natural illumination feel. COB comes in either warm or natural white and is available in both IP20 (for Indoor use) or IP66, which is suitable for use outdoors or in bathrooms.
BENEFITS OF COB
– Integrated components improve durability
– High-density LED provides dot-free continuous illumination
– Chips mounted directly onboard provide 180° beam angle
Color of COB LED Strip
This COB tape also comes in either warm white (3000K), daylight (4000K), or cool white (6000K). Warm white offers a yellowish hue which provides a cozier feel to space and is typically best for use in the living area or the bedroom.
Cool white (6000K), on the other hand, is a cooler, brighter white. It is generally used in kitchens or bathrooms and works synergistically with a modern home.
Daylight (4000K) sits right in the middle of this spectrum. It is rather similar to natural daylight and produces a bright white light, while still remaining relatively warm. This makes daylight very versatile and usable in a range of projects.
Cut and Connect
This tape can be cut at 4.5cm intervals and we’ll be more than happy to do all the handy work for you. Here at MSH, we offer a free cutting and soldering service which will provide you with bespoke made-to-measure tape.
Your first 3 cuts will be free of charge and we will provide your tape with their own cable attached allowing you to install drivers where applicable.
All tape is priced per meter, and our strip lights team will be able to provide you with a custom quote if you have a particular project in mind.
Please note that all IP67 and IP68 tape comes in lengths of up to 5m max, and will not fit in any of our aluminum profiles.
IP65 tape comes in maximum lengths of up to 25m and will be soldered tape to tape every 5m for any lengths over 5m. Although 25m lengths are available in this way, there is no guarantee that it can be run continuously due to power drop. Please get in touch with us if you require further information about this.
IP20 tape may or may not come from soldered tape to tape, as this depends on how it arrives.
COB led strip light applications
New LED-Strip without any visible LEDs! The COB LED-Strips emit a continuous, homogeneous line of light.
This brings great advantages to a huge number of applications:
- perfect uniform light, even in very flat LED profiles
- continuous, narrow LED band for accent- or orientation lighting
- perfectly even in indirect light application with very short distances
the price is for one roll of 5 meters!
- flexible LED strip with COB technology
- voltage: 24V/12V
- with 3M adhesive tape on the backside for easy mounting
- IP20 not water protected
