    Default The envelope, please...

    Halo 6" IT/AC can with a 65W flood at full brightness for two hours, attic ambient temperature 121F, can packed in rock wool insulation. Can temperature measured at top of cylindrical portion with a lab thermometer stuffed between the can and the insulation: 152F. I laid a short piece of CPVC on top of the can and held it down with a 1lb lead weight. Both the CPV and the lead were warm (duh!). CPVC could be hand held, no sign of any melting, distortion, etc.

    Disclaimer: your mileage may vary.

    Thumbs up

    That is appreciated. I think with the proper distance and placing of insulation, there should be little damaging heat build up.
