In Response To: Tecnolux color changes (Attila)

EGL's match to the #17 is our S-81 which is part #369615 - 15mm for 10 and 12mm change the last 2 digits of the part # to the diameter. It is a very close match but I would never recommend doing multiple manufacturers glass in the same job.

As far as the Ruby ours can be filled with either Neon or Argon.

I hope this helps
