Despite the rapid advances that LED technology has made in recent years, many LED capsules continue to feature the hard plastic bodies and glass lenses that characterised the traditional bulbs they’re actually designed to replace.
This G4 led replacement lamp from Amitex eschews these traditional materials and replaces them with a singular, moulded silicon body.
This material is liable to warp under the extremely high temperatures exerted by halogen bulbs. However, at the lower operating temperatures of an LED bulb it actually works as a more effective heat conductor than glass and plastic. This in turn reduces the temperature of the bulb and its components yet further and places them under even less strain, resulting in a hugely impressive nominal lifetime of 30,000 hours.
The capsule’s dual LED COB chips are positioned back to back so that the daylight coloured light they produce is directed outwards within a 330° beam angle. This light is diffused by the silicon casing just as it would a traditional glass lens, though its singular unibody construction removes the number of potential fail points and lends the capsule a thin, sleek unibody design that is ideally suited to much smaller, more intricate fixtures.
