PIAA BROADENS NIGHT-TECH BULB LINE
PIAA BROADENS NIGHT-TECH BULB LINE
WITH THE ADDITION OF SAE/DOT-COMPLIANT
9007 AND H13 BULBS
Portland, OR, March 17, 2014 – PIAA Corporation has broadened its line of advanced-technology Night-Tech replacement bulbs with the addition of 9007 and H13 bulbs to its already-comprehensive offerings of bulbs using this technology. These new SAE/DOT-compliant 9007 and H13 halogen bulbs fit a wide variety of domestic and import vehicles, so now even more motorists will get to enjoy the enhanced visibility provided by Night-Tech science.
The advanced technology behind PIAA (pronounced pe’-uh) Night-Tech bulbs includes special materials and manufacturing, giving these bulbs the ability to provide up to 90 percent more light than conventional bulbs. This translates into an increase in illumination range of as much as a hundred feet/35 meters compared with conventional bulbs. And new-generation manufacturing and QC processes make Night-Tech bulbs more durable and longer-lasting than other designs.
In particular, PIAA Night-Tech bulbs are made with an exclusive blend of gases with a proportionally higher level of inert gases, encased in a rugged glass enclosure. A special aerospace alloy filament material and shape, along with proprietary dual band bulb coatings, also contribute to the performance and longevity advantages of these bulbs compared to other designs.
Of particular interest is the color temperature of PIAA Night-Tech bulbs, on the order of 3600 Kelvin. This color temperature affords whiter illumination than conventional bulbs, while retaining SAE/DOT approval. PIAA continues to be the industry leader in color temperature technology in order to provide the brightest and safest driving experience possible. An easy-to-understand discussion of color temperatures is provided on the PIAA web site — www.PIAA.com.
A hallmark of PIAA bulbs is PIAA’s exclusive XTRA Technology, the result of PIAA’s innovative blend of gases and filament design and construction. This technology produces double the light output of other designs, without any increase in power consumption. This makes PIAA Night-Tech bulbs direct replacements for less efficient designs, with no modifications needed to wiring, and no additional relays needed. They are strictly “plug and play.”
Explains PIAA’s Dino Ignacio, Sr. Product Manager. “We continue to introduce products that are needed in the marketplace, and these two new additions to our popular Night-Tech line of bulbs is evidence of our commitment. Motorists, as well as drivers of motorcycles, ATVs, snowmobiles, and other powersports vehicles, have come to rely on PIAA for the most powerful and durable lighting products available anywhere. This includes not only our advanced line of Night-Tech bulbs, but also our fog and driving lamps and accessories, and our LED lamps that use the Reflector Facing Technology (RFT) first developed by PIAA.”
Continues Ignacio, “We’re so confident in all of our Night-Tech bulbs that we cover them with a full year’s warranty. These SAE/DOT-compliant bulbs, including the new H13 and 9007 bulbs, represent the newest technology and best illumination available in replacement halogen bulbs.”
