Color:
F40T12 colored fluorescent light bulbs are a suitable replacement for any situation where you need to have a particular color like red, green, blue, pink or gold that makes the interesting effect you need. These will work anywhere you might use a standard 48 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 40 watts and the colors that come out of it are more profound and richer than the kind of filtered light you might get from the colored tube guard. The reason these are more expensive is that it's the phosphor itself that is creating the color, not some 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 conventional white phosphor. But if you want the best colored fluorescent light bulbs you can 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 particular 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 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 particular 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, 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 job 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.

General information.
One of the best ways to get a lot of color into any spaces with colored fluorescent lights. They provide maximum light output and create light with the phosphors, not some coating that goes over the top of the bulb. It makes it a vibrant color effect that you will have whether using this for a display or want to use it for a holiday or festive occasion. This is the T12 fluorescent tube that operates on a magnetic ballast or sometimes on an electronic ballast. This is the older type of fluorescent lighting that’s been used for many decades, and many people still have this as part of their overhead lighting.

The colors and how it works.
As stated before, fluorescent colored tubes generate the light from the excited phosphors. But one of the things to keep in mind is that when they're not lighted, they don’t often look like the color. The blue and green color looks like a regular white fluorescent tube, and sometimes people get confused by that. They get them from us, and they call us and let us know that we sent the wrong ones that are white tubes. But once you hook them up to power, you’ll see that they create this wonderfully rich color that many people love. There are several different colors that you can get, and it covers the primary color spectrum. Those colors would be red, blue, green, gold, pink and hot pink. So no matter what kind of area that you’re trying to light, you can use these colors as a single color or use them as a combination. A lot of people don’t think to use these mixed together for other colors, but you can do that.

Different versions of colored fluorescent lights.
This is the 48 inch T12 fluorescent lamp and is used in all kinds of light fixtures, but if you have the T8 version, we have colored fluorescent lights for those as well. Those would be the more common type used today as many people have switched their light fixtures from the older style T12 to T8. They operate on an electronic ballast, and the consistency of the lighting will be better, and you won’t get the flickering that sometimes you get with an F40T12 magnetic. This 4-foot version isn’t the only length that you can get the T12; you can also get it in the two foot which is an F20T12 bulb. In either case, the color will be the same and consistent from one to another. So you can use both the two and four-foot types together if you need to.

How can we help you today?
