Barry,

For the average shop installation a 70 or 80 CRI lamp will suffice. The 80 and 90 CRI lamps
are usually used in retail applications and show rooms where you want the colors to reflect
closer to what might show under natural light. The old style fluorescent lamps tended to illuminate
the surfaces under the luminaire in a poor manor. You have the Kelvin color of the lamp and then you have
the color rendering index for these lamps. 735, 740, 745 these lamp colors would have the same CRI index but the colors would be 3500, 4000 and 4500 Kelvin in temperature color.
