Used initially for UVA lamps in electronic fly killers, and subsequently for UVC and white lights, FEP has proved to be the ultimate coating material for shatterproofing lamps for this application. It allows glass and mercury to be safely contained when breakage occurs and yet does not become degraded by the heat or UV emitted by the lamps.
We manufacture heat shrinkable FEP to cover lamps and can cover virtually all lamp configurations, including straight, compact, circline (circular) and tight U-bend styles. Our specialist coating process ensures your lamps are IEC61549 compliant.
Our usual lamp coatings have a maximum continuous operating temperature of 200°C and does not embrittle or discolour over time as with other coatings. The integrity of the fluoropolymer coating will long outlast the manufacturers specified lifespan of the lamp.
FEP shatterproof lamp coatings can be applied to:
UVA insect lamps – linear lamps, circlines and compact Linx lamps
UVC sterilisation / germicidal lamps
Long-life Triphosphor white lights
FEP safety coated shatterproof lamps are used where a glass-free area is required:
Schools and colleges
Food processing plants
Leisure centres and swimming pools
We worked with a UVC sterilisation customer to create a custom UVC lamp cover. The coating needed to follow strict criteria to fit the UVC sterilisation application precisely.
