Applications of LyTec® include safety jackets & clothing, costume jewellery, Christmas decorations and decor. 

LyTec® can be used successfully up to 130m in length and the fibre can be bent in all directions, even in acute angles! The wire has 'memory retention' so with proper handling it can be moulded into various shapes.

Multiple wires can be placed on on certain drivers to obtain flashing sequences of the different wires. LyTec® is perfect to substitute design-grey areas by adding lighting effects.
