A patented formulation provides our products with a tough, durable protective coating on a wide variety of lamps including Spot and Flood lamps.
These lamp types often produce higher "bulb surface" temperatures reaching to around 300 degrees. Sureguard with the Mylon formulation maintains protection while withstanding surface temperatures up to 486 degrees constant. This large differential affords an additional safety zone for application errors.
Sureguard is the only coating available that will not affect the C.R.I. (color Rendering Index) or lumen output specified by professionals worldwide. Other safety and custom color coatings for these types of lamps can reduce lumens and alter C.R.I. as much as 20%.
