Light Bulb Lingo - What is an LED filament?

An LED “Filament” starts with many (sometimes hundreds) of tiny unpackaged LED chips mounted on a metal, ceramic, sapphire or glass substrate. This assembly is then encapsulated by a silicone/phosphor mixture that will convert the light to the desired kelvin temperature (color of light). One or more of these filaments is then incorporated into a glass vessel and becomes a finished filament or string style LED bulb.

Send your approved fixture shop drawings, any bulb guidance or specifications that you may have, plus the state in which your project is located, to the experts at Jason@MarisUSA.com

We will analyze your documentation and prepare a summary report for your review. The report will include the recommended bulb for each fixture along with bulb detail, order number, price, availability, bulb image and any state mandated requirements.
