Where can I find 8000K Skywhite fluorescent? « on: August 20, 2020, 12:22:16 PM » Author: LightUpMyLife
The last color of F15T12 fluorescent lamps I need to have the full range of color is 8000K Skywhite? Where can I find them in F15T12 style?

Dont know about your specific question - but Osram Russia (Smolensk) make some oddball T8's, like 12000K. They might make something in 8000K as well

No one ever made a 8000K in F15T12 as far as I know.

Wow. That's too bad. I saw 8000K Skywhite at Menards but they were 48 inches.

Only Osram made 8000K skywhite fluorescents, and in European T8 lamps only, which can't be operated on rapid-start or trigger start.

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

I think that colour temperature and length may have been made for lighting aquariums at one point. They had some pretty oddball colour temps for aquariums at one point. It'll be a F15T8 lamp though but almost all F15T12 fixtures will run the F15T8 lamps.

In terms of general lighting lamps, Sylvania made F32T8s in 8000K. Menards has them.

That might be a possibility to find a 15W Lamp. However then the quality will certainly be not very good or the lamp very expensive. Osram Augsburg and Smolensk did made 8000K tube, however only in 18, 30, 36 and 58W if I remember correctly. Another possibility would be to use a 6700K with high CRI, the light from these is also very nice.
