Section 3. Physical Properties
Not applicable to an intact lamp. The outer bulb is UV-block quartz glass, the base is ceramic with stainless steel pins,
and the inner envelope (arc tube) is ceramic. Other chemical or physical characteristics are not applicable.
Section 4. Fire and Explosion Hazards
The outer glass bulb encloses a ceramic arc tube which is refractory. There is a vacuum within the outer envelope. If
the lamp is dropped or struck, a possible implosion could result which would cause flying glass.
WARNING: The arc tubes of metal halide lamps are designed to operate at high pressures and temperatures (up to
900°C). If the arc tube ruptures for any reason, the outer bulb may break and shards of extremely hot glass may be
discharged into the surrounding environment, with the associated risk of property damage or personal injury.
