Ceramics can withstand higher temperatures than quartz. The wall temperatures can therefore be raised which means the proportion of filler materials in the plasma can also be increased. HCI technology has further improved the luminous efficacy and color rendering of the lamps.
Ceramics are less susceptible to attack from the corrosive metal halide filler and less porous for filler components. Both offer a longer service life than lamps with quartz burners. In the second improved generation of OSRAM ceramic lamps, the ceramic burner has been designed to be round.
