How to
UV Curing

Clear plastic shields
Some of you will need to shield the lamps from the environment, to have them in an enclosed box. This is fine as long as you have some ventilation for the bulbs and use the right plastic, as most plastics block UV. For instance, you can't use plexiglass as the "clear" material. Most plexi blocks 90-97% of UVB and most of the UVA as well. It would be about the same as using 1/4" either case, you aren't getting any UV out of the box.

You need to use OP4 grade acrylic and only OP4 grade acrylic. This is available from many industrial supply houses, such as Piedmont Plastics. This is the same stuff used to make tanning bed acrylics and lets over 95% of the UV pass through. Some examples are some of the products by ACRYLITE® and 3M's LEXAN®. It costs a little more than generic plexi-type material, but it is the only thing that will work.

Solacure Means Quality

Solacure ultraviolet lamps aren't just good, we guarantee they are the best or your money back. We don't use stock parts anywhere in our products. Our glass is a special blend, and more transparent to UVA and UVB. Our 32 watt lamps use 60 watt rated cathodes and are tested at almost 70 watts of power. Almost all our lamps have built in reflectors. All are designed to be overdriven to extra high wattages. We test, and test, and test our lamps.

We stand behind everything we sell and guarantee each will perform exactly to specification, or we will replace them. We don't want your business this week, we want it every week, and we are willing to earn it. There really is a difference in quality when it comes to ultraviolet bulbs, and Solacure tops the list.
