PRINTED FILM WITH MOUNTED LIGHT EMITTING DIODES ENCAPSULATED IN LIGHT GUIDE
A printed film with mounted light emitting diodes (32) encapsulated in a light guide (36) includes a printed film assembly. The printed film assembly includes multiple light emitting diodes(32). A light guide (36) is injection molded onto a first side of a body (12) covering the light emitting diodes (32). A light transmissive polymeric material coating layer (78) is applied by injection molding to a second side of the body (12) opposite to the first side. An overmolded component has the printed film assembly embedded therein, with the coating layer exposed for visibility of light from the light emitting diodes when at least one of the light emitting diodes is energized.
