Abstract (en)

A base 10 for a light emitting bulb comprises an electrically insulating body 12 formed from a thermoplastic organic material, for example, polyethylene, and having a first surface 14, a second surface 16 spaced therefrom, and a sidewall 18 separating the first and second surfaces. The sidewall is formed to provide a first area 20, such as flange 21, for initially receiving an electrically conducting element 22 and a second area 24 for subsequently fixing the electrically conductive element 22 to the insulating body 12. The area 24 is provided with a deformable protrusion 25. An electrically conductive eyelet 26 is affixed to the first surface 14 and the electrically conductive element 22 extends beyond the second surface 16. This base eliminates the need for using and maintaining glass furnaces and provides cost savings thereby. <IMAGE>
