Reflector Bulbs

A reflector bulb's interior is usually painted silver to reflect the light, and with a wide beam angle, suited for directional lighting including track or recessed lighting, or for desk lamps. The bulb is designed so that the required light distribution is achieved by reflection from the coating. In order to eliminate highlights, which are particularly noticeable in illumination at short distances, part of the bulb through which the lamp’s light flux passes is given a frosted finish.
