Piping light via plastic.Given the drive toward greater vehicular differentiation, Tyco Electronics Tyco Electronics was the largest unit of Tyco International Ltd., and the world's leading supplier of passive electronic components. On June 29, 2007 Tyco Electronics became a wholly independent publicly-traded company, along with Covidien, from the breakup of the Tyco conglomerate (www.tycoelectronics.com) has developed the means by which there is linear light distribution, such as along the running board of the Nissan Quest The Nissan Quest is a minivan produced by Nissan since 1993. There have been three generations of this model.

Called the AMP Light Guides, these are based on LED-produced light running through acrylic acrylic, artificial fiber made from a special group of vinyl compounds, primarily acrylonitrile. Acrylic fibers are thermoplastic (i.e., soften when heated, reharden upon cooling), have low moisture regain, are low in density, and can be made into bulky fabrics. pipes. According to according to

The polymer pipe is said to provide 94% light transmission. Tyco Electronics integrates a reflective strip onto the pipe to help direct the beam. The pipes can be bent; used on the interior as well as exterior; and incorporate red, green or other LED colors.
