F20T12 colored light bulbs are a suitable replacement for any situation where you need to have a special color like red, green, blue, pink or gold that makes the colorful effect you need. These will work anywhere you might use a standard 24 inch T12 lamp and should accomplish the need for a deep, rich color. These bulbs can be used for special occasions or times of the year especially holidays or parties. These are also energy efficient running off of an electronic ballast just like the regular color T12 lamps. There rated for 20 watts and the colors that come out of it are deeper and richer then the kind of filtered light you might get from the colored tube guard. The reason these are more expensive is because it's the phosphor itself that is creating the color, not some kind of filter that's put on a white lamp. And those individual phosphor colors are very expensive and considered rare in comparison to something like a regular white phosphor. But if you want the best colored colored fluorescent bulbs you can possibly get, then these would be the best choice for almost any light fixture you have. And these will work in almost any T12 light fixture because the F40T12 is the most common energy saving light bulb on the market. These types of fluorescent colored light bulbs have a myriad of applications and not just for things like display or special occasions. Often certain colors are used in industrial situations where the colors bring out certain defects in manufactured products or have a designation for an area of special concern. The gold version is often used in certain types of lighting where inspections are done as one example. But you can get creative with these for many ways to better display a product in a retail situation, have a party in your office, or once again for an industrial use. The light doesn't come from a filter that's on the light bulb, it comes directly from the phosphor. These are not jacketed lamps, these are regular T12 colored light bulbs with the special phosphor that emits that specific color that you need. These are the same size as any T12 lamp and are electrically the same, so you don't have to do anything different to get this colored light, simply plug them in. With the proliferation of legacy T12 lamps everywhere, there's probably no situation where these won't work. So get all the bright colors you want for your situation and call us if you're unsure of whether it will work for you are not. We have a lot of experience in applying these and can help you with that.

This type of light bulb is commonly used today with all kinds of T12 lighting fixtures. The colors really are special and because they’re not filtered, that they come from the phosphor itself makes all the difference. Even LED light bulbs at this point don’t compare to the kind of light that these put out. Even though they operate on an magnetic ballast and they are T12 lamps, this isn’t considered to be something that’s energy-efficient because the lumen output is so low relatively speaking. Compared to a white fluorescent these have a lower light output but the effect of color is what you’re going for with these. We have many customers that use these around holiday times to get that special splash of color that they can’t get any other way. It makes everything more festive and colorful without having to do any kind of special painting or anything like that. All you have to do is just plug in these lights in existing T12 light fixtures. If you have any questions as to how this will work for you in your home or business application, you can always give us a call. We’ve had extensive experience using this type of lighting and can answer any question that you may have. Additionally if you have need of a quantity of this type of light, we can give you special case quantity pricing, so please call us for that and will be happy to help you at
