I thought I'd read something that said business had to put 20A receptacles on 20A breakers. Is that not accurate?

Sorry about that ...figured you knew...just throwing that in for future readers. Still, with a business I'm not sure.
15 amp receptacles are allowed on 20 amp circuits in commercial also.

This is covered in 210.21(B) NEC.

It really does work !

The metal mesh is called plasters bead,
Because its a mesh it lets the heat escape,
And with adequate distance between the gel and light it does work !
Dont try it any other way,
it wont work if you do !
it took some experimenting to get it right
if you do it this way it will work !
