Sylvania PAR38 Daylight light bulbs are a new kind of halogen light bulb that
gives off a full spectrum daylight color. They have a special filter which
blocks out some of the yellows which prevent a true daylight color. Full
spectrum lighting has been a constant need for many types of industries which
need to be able to differentiate colors, and most of the time those were in the
fluorescent type of bulb. Sylvania has made these in the most common outdoor halogen flood light which
will be closer to this full spectrum daylight color. You'll find these in
outdoor lighting fixtures, track lighting and some kinds of recessed lighting as
well. You can choose from two wattages, 50 or 75 watt, both with the excellent
Daylight color from Sylvania.
The term full spectrum is most often used when referring to fluorescents that
simulate natural outdoor light. By definition, virtually all fluorescent light
bulbs are full spectrum in that they contain some of all colors in their
spectral range. But the Sylvania PAR38 Daylight bulbs aren't a fluorescent bulb
and therefore don't have the same type of light as fluorescent. The halogen
light is still most like an incandescent, but has the warmer tones filtered out.
However, the term full spectrum is primarily used when referring to those lamps
that fall into the white to blue/white color temperature range. Color

tone color, 5000 kelvin would be a white color and 6500 kelvin would be a
The Sylvania PAR38 Daylight bulbs are the same physical size as regular PAR38 bulbs that you may be used to in many types of
outdoor light fixtures. You can
tell what kind of PAR38 lamp you have by measuring the distance across the
widest point of the bulb. The number after 'PAR' represents the number of
eighths of an inch the bulb diameter is. Therefore, PAR38 lamps are almost 5 inches
across and come in 50 and 75 watts in the Daylight version. PAR38 lamps are widely available from Sylvania
and will work in the same space as standard PAR38 lamps. They have standard bases
and are able to be used indoors or outdoors. This means they can be directly
exposed to rain or snow and still function normally and they do not need to be
covered by a light fixture. This makes the PAR38 lamps very versatile and quite handy to use.
Sylvania generally calls their line Daylight and within that category are many
different configurations of light bulbs. Most of their Daylight incandescent
light bulbs use a blue phosphor coating. The variety ranges from standard light
bulbs to halogen called Daylight Plus. There are also Daylight appliance bulbs,
indoor floods and indoor/outdoor PAR floods. The Sylvania PAR38 Daylight floods
use neodymium in the glass. Sylvania also carries a 50/150 Daylight 3way for
those people who have a special fixture used for reading or variation of light
