Grote Introduces LightForm, the World`s First Flexible LED Lighting Film at 2009 SEMA Show

Thinnest, Most Flexible LED Lighting Product on the Planet Enhances Creativity,
Making Amazing Custom Lighting Schemes a Cool New Reality
LAS VEGAS--(Business Wire)--
Grote Industries introduced the first commercially available versions of its new
LightForm flexible LED lighting film technology during a press conference at the
2009 SEMA Show today. 

"At less than 1 millimeter thick, LightForm flexible LED lighting film enables
users to quickly and easily install LED lighting in tight spaces that were
previously inaccessible to vehicle lighting and can even be sewn into fabric,
"said vice president of sales and marketing, John Grote. "Now customizers and
restylers can achieve fantastic interior and exterior LED lighting effects that
were simply unthinkable before today." 

Grote explained that the new commercialized LightForm flexible LED lighting film
is ultra thin and ultra pliable, allowing users to bend lighting around corners,
over contoured areas and into complicated shapes. He noted that LightForm can be
folded, cut to fit while lit and can slide into the narrowest crevices and
between panels and trim. LightForm also enables users to achieve edge lighting
effects that are as bright at one end as they are at the other, and when used
with light diffusing film, eliminates the hotspots and bright points of light
that are so often associated with traditional edge lighting methods. 

Members of the media had their first chance to see an illuminated sheet of the
transparent, paper-thin LightForm, as samples were passed around the afternoon
press conference. Examples of the newly commercialized LightForm strips were
also examined by the audience. 

LightForm flexible LED strips come in power strips and extension strips and each
power strip can illuminate up to two extension strips. 

Each LightForm flexible LED strip measures 10 inches (254 mm) long, 0.5 inches
(127 mm) wide and is less than 1 millimeter thick. LightForm flexible LED strips
are expandable; up to three, 10-inch segments can be connected, providing up to
30 inches (762 mm) of red, amber, green or blue LED lighting. The strips come
with an easy peel-and-stick adhesive backing that sticks to virtually any clean
surface. 

"The marketplace is extremely receptive to this product concept and is ready to
apply it to a wide variety of vehicles," Grote said, citing a recent study of
the restyling market conducted by Grote Industries. "A vast majority of
restylers responded favorably or very favorably to the product, and marine,
motorcycle and trucking uses were singled out in addition to automotive
applications." Grote said that virtually 99 percent of respondents thought that
a significant market exists for LightForm.
