5 grams of mercury. Wow, that's about 1000 times more than in a modern fluorescent lamp.

bloody hell, that's a lot of mercury in that T12 bulb made from russia, compare to what USA made fluorescent tubes using far less merccury

Lamp Amount (mg.)
Pre 1988 T-12 ~45
Post 1988 T-12 ~11.6
Typical T8 ~4 to 5
Low Mercury T8 ~3
CFL ~4 to 5

I like all my light fixtures flickers when starting up and EOL
