How to
UV Curing

Pine, aging through a thick shiny finish
60 hours of exposure to UVA only, after UV curing This is going to be a series of examples if I can muster it. the first example is after 60 hours of exposure to the Curall 365. Keep in mind, it really isn't designed to be an aging lamp, although there are some applications where it shines. It tends to be much closer, but aging with the UVB tends to give softer tones, rich colors, and in the case of unfinished wood, a bit of grey. Honestly, the finish darkened it up as much as the lights did in this example, but the lights did give the wood some glow. This is not a perfectly sanded example, the lower right is relatively rough, and is darker, perhaps because it has more surface area. What is odd is that it has an almost luminescent/lustrous quality, and the colors change as you move the piece around. I would also note that this finish is "UV resistant", which is unusual for a UV cure resin, but regardless, it will slow down the aging process dramatically.

Yes, the finish is globbed on, I didn't have time for a perfect finish, I just wanted to test through a thick coat, like you would see on guitars. Now it is time to put the same slab under some serious UVB.

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.
