What are these used for and are they harmful to look at?

Nothing like the beautiful cool white light of a coated Mercury Vapor lamp and the soothing hum of it's magnetic ballast.

This lamp have a continum in all of the UV spectra (180-370nm) and have a quartz glass, meaning that it is very dangerous to eye and skin, and produces ozone.
Operate this lamp with the correct equipment. If an electronic ballast for fluorescent lamps are used, you may easily kill this lamp. The lamp filament must be preheated for 12 secs before lighting the lamp, because it must be very hot before lamp operation.

I"m don't speak english well, and rely on online translating to write in this site.
Please forgive me if my choice of my words looks like offensive, while that isn't my intention.

I only working with the European date format (dd.mm.yyyy).

I hope that LED won't replace all forms of other light

dor123, There seems to be variations in the transmission windows material of these lamps so some transmit sorter wavelengths of UV than others. I think it would be wise to always assume the UV is short and harmful. Descriptions of this lamp often refer to them running very hot, but in my experience they are not as hot as suggested. Including ballast losses this lamp is running at 36W. The envelope could easily be glass and not melt.
