Halcyon's proprietary bulb socket is manufactured from Poly Ether Ether Ketone(PEEK). This high performance polymer has a melting temperature of 644 deg F and a continuous operating temperature of 500 deg F.
While Radel is an excellent material it is not ideal for super high temperature applications. In this application our competition uses good but not the right material for the job.
