Splash Proof IP65 LED Strips
When installing an LED strip where it may be exposed to water you must ensure it has a suitable IP rating. The location you areinstalling your LED strip will determine the level of IP rating you will require. IP65 rated products are defined as being fully protected against dust and are protected against water jets. These products are therefore ideal for installs where they may be splashed with water like kitchen and bars.
All our IP65 LED strips feature gel coating that protects the circuit board from temporary exposure to water. As a company we keep stock of both single colour and colour changing IP65 strips suited to a range of projects.

Where Can I Use An IP65 Waterproof LED Strip
IP65 LED strips are splash resistant and can be exposed to water droplets for short periods of time. These products are not fully waterproof and cannot be exposed to water for prolonged periods of time. IP65 products are used frequently in dry installations as they are generally more robust because of the gel coating.
For outdoor installations, an LED strip with an IP rating of 67 or above would be necessary to prevent water ingress. Where an IP65 coating covers the front of a strip, IP67 products feature a silicone coating that completely surrounds the strip.
