The enclosure is essentially how the lamp is mounted inside your TV set. Typically it is manufactured from high quality, heat resistant plastic with PPS plastic w/ glass fiber (usually 30-45%). These are generally reusable well past the life expectancy of a few generations of replacement lamps. Typically there is no need to purchase a new lamp enclosure as long as the lamp is firmly seated in place and the connector wire contacts are within tolerance.
