Lamp Coating Contains Broken Glass And Vapours

A new coating for fluorescent lamps helps contain glass and vapours when broken, its manufacturer claims.

The added protection could help prevent one source of contamination in plants from entering the food chain, said Shat-R-Shield, which relaunched its line of T5 fluorescent lamps with the new coating.

T5 lamps are favoured for industrial sites because of their relatively low energy use. However such lamps give off more heat and UV rays than other high output fluorescents. Such conditions usually cause safety coatings to deteriorate quickly, increasing the risks in the event of breakage.

The coating has additional strength that allows it to stay intact even under high heat and UV output conditions, the company stated in a press release.

Shat-R-Shield said it has developed a new mix of tetrafluorethylene and hexafluoroproylene coPolymer (FEP) that remains intact, containing virtually all glass and vapors when broken.
