Hi raye,
The best advise I could offer is to check manufacturers instruction or recommondations. If the plastic cladding can only maintain a heat source of 60c or less. I'd be thinking along the lines of LED's or low energy luminaires. I can only assume that you are thinking of using downlighting rather than the pendant type. If the pendant type was used this would disapate less heat around the plastic especailly if the luminance was directed downwards.
