Compact Fluro Lighting in standard plastic hood

Today a Retro fitted a standard 1.5" plastic hood with a 36W Osram 5000K
compact fluro.. Just 1 question - The base where the light plugs in gets
very hot - nearly so hot I can touch the plastic above it. Just wandering if
CFs get so hot they actually melt the plastic ? I dont want this happening
obviously for the safety/fire reason
