WHAT TEMPERATURES CAN D-C-FIX® WITHSTAND?
d-c-fix® can comfortably withstand temperatures between -10°C and +50°C

IS D-C-FIX® HEAT RESISTANT?
d-c-fix® is heat resistant up to 75°C for short periods of time

Here’s Olight R50 Pro near a wooden surface on turbo for under 1 minute.


Look at the lens in that photo. It isn’t very hot. Only the “wooden surface” that the light is shining on is getting so hot. In fact, I’m almost certain that most of the heat showing in the lens area, is actually being read from the reflector behind the lens, and not the lens itself. I know the DC-fix will absorb more light (and heat) than a clear lens, but I think the DC-fix will be okay for at least that light. Wink

Thermal imaging doesn’t work on glass or other reflective surfaces. It just reflects the temperature as if it was a mirror. If you take a thermal image of a window straight on, you don’t see the temperature of the glass or anything behind it but your own body heat.

Well, but the wooden surface absorbs the light/heat while DC-Fix lets it pass, at least most of it. I’m using DC-Fix “Static premium transparent” (static means without glue) in a UF13 with MT-G2, powered at about 60 watts maximum, about 3000 lumens. This DC-Fix eats only about 7% of the light (my rough measurement), no problems here up to now.

That’s good to hear. I’ll try it on some of my angrier lights and report back.

Maybe find a “disposable” lens to try it on, just in case it does trap heat. Wink

And yeah, I forgot about that tiny detail of thermal imaging and glass. I was really not even thinking about glass. Most lenses in lights that I own are plastic. Silly

It shines through it, not on it, and it’s kept cool by the lens too, so i expect no problems.

Yes I still have Dc-fix available . I also have about a dozen 3”×5” sheets of heavier thickness diffusion material as well.

Splott ,,,, I’ll send you a PM

*edit 6/20/16

just noticed this as i was about to send you a paypal payment. maybe folks can give me some advice…. im actually putting this on a led “cube” offroad light that i use for a reverse light on my atv. i currently have a homemade diffuser on there… basically a cover that i cut a bunch of lines in with a grinder to give it a wider pattern.

all i need is 2” × 2”… so size isnt an issue… but what would make the beam as floody as possible? and maybe be durable to boot? although ill probably put a clear cover over top of it for protection.

I’ve had some of this stuff for ages, but it’s still in the envelope Boaz sent it in. I’ll be building another BMF SRK with 3 x MT-G2s from a cheapo SRK host and will try it out then. A few questions though…

Does this stuff come off easy? Does it leave any traces that have to be cleaned?

Does this stuff change the tint? I’ll be sticking it on another MT-G2 SRK as I use them for photography, and want one that is more of a fill light so I need it’s tint to be the same.

Mike C: it’s easy to remove and wow the glass does NOT need cleaning! No tint changes. Wonderful.

One does need a noticeable increase in output, at least for my taste, but this is very subjective.

I’ll say it again because it bears worth repeating .. A normal Convoy S2+ at waist height throws a beam where the outer edge hits the floor at 4 1/2 feet in front of you , When you add DC-FIX the edge of beam hits the floor 6 inches in front of you instead of 4 1/2 ft.

If it doesn’t take every issue out of your beam ..it certainly will take 95% of them .the harder part will be looking for more lights to add it to.

Go buy more lights

I paid it on February 22nd and received it on February 28th. This has been very fast!

Right now I don’t have the flashlight in which I want to use it (Convoy M2) and I don’t have the time either. But this DC-FIX looks great. I really want to try it and I’m sure it will work very well.

Thank you very much Boaz for your product, your help and the advice.

When does one not need increased output? Crazy

Just sent PM for 2 sheets of DC Fix, I have 1 light in particular I wanted to use it on, I think I messed up the emitter (5700k nichia 219c) while reflowing and there’s a ton of rings and a tiny dark area in the middle of the hot spot. Normally I wouldn’t get too worked up over some artifacts but this one makes the light look cheap. Smile Hopefully this fixes it

Thanks for sharing the photos k-wong. Care to share some of the specs on that light? What distance was the wall from the light?

It was about 3 feet for a Lumintop ED25 (2xAA) with 219c 5700k. I’d probably do a 4k or 5k next time as it was too close to the original stock xpl emitter and less output. The DC Fix definitely helped with the multiple rings and tint shift but it was also a bit floodier.

Here are a couple before and after shots. Stock Convoy S2+  3B tint, 16-18" from white wall. Sorry if my photog prowess is not too good but it shows the difference. Much improved beam for my use.

Before DC-Fix

 

After DC-Fix

 

The photos don't really do justice to the expanded spill area the film gives the light. Great stuff!
