About Starcoat

Starcoat is a proprietary coating technology that eliminates the need for traditional lower quality halophosphor coating by reflecting the UV-light more effectively. This leaves a pure triphosphor coating for excellent color rendering and lumen maintenance performance.


Broad ballast compatibility

Rather than designing our lamps around one ballast, GE has maximized our performance on all major ballasts. GE Starcoat T5 is designed for HF operation which means: higher lamp efficacy and lower ballast losses than conventional ballasts.

Environmentally responsible design

GE T5 lamps feature 38% less glass and phosphors than T8 lamps and that means reduced waste in landfills. The low 5mg mercury design of GE T5 Starcoat lamp is another plus for the environment. And with its high output design, you can reduce the number of lamps used for the same lumen output, further reducing environmental impact and providing added design flexibility
