Research
Most of the companies and individuals who do plant testing aren't keen to release information. This is obvious, as using UV lights to enhance your business is still a relatively new concept, and many consider what they use, and how they use it to be proprietary and a business advantage. Fortunately, we have a good working relationship with a number of people who use our lamps (and others) for both UV curing and horticultural use, and we are able to share the aggregate of information that we receive. We also have a a few working partners who test the lamps, and of course, we have three different labs of our own for different types of testing.

Most of our research with UV curing uses Solarez products. We know the owner well, he will test our lamps, and we test his UV resins. It is a good working relationship. We aren't financially affiliated with each other (and in fact, live 3 time zones from each other) but that independence is why the testing is reliable. We also work with other finishes and resins, and with end users that literally use every single finish on the market.

As for horticulture, I've tested our lamps on a number of different plants, primarily peppers and tomatoes grown indoors, and swear they taste better when grown with UV. That is subjective, granted, but I don't have a chemistry degree, and the taste test alone was enough to convince me it works. As for cannabis, I've never grown it and only certain forms of cannabis are legal in North Carolina, where Solacure is based from, so it isn't likely that we will ever test it ourselves. I do have most of a decade helping growers in states where it IS legal, using a variety of lamps, and figuring out which frequencies work best. We ship a lot of lamps to growers in California, Colorado and Washington in particular, and get good feedback, and reorders.

Mold and mildew reduction

We now have fairly significant proof that our very high UVB lamps, such as the Flower Power family of lamp, will indeed suppress mold and mildew and discourage some pests. It isn't a "fix" but the difference between plants using the lamps and plants not using the lamps is very obvious. For this purpose, I would recommend the Flower Power lamps additionally as mold and mildew suppressing. It won't cure plants that are already covered, obviously, but it will help keep it from starting to begin with.

Solacure Means Quality

Solacure ultraviolet lamps aren't just good, we guarantee they are the best. 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.

Buy with confidence: We like what we do, and we've been doing it for over 30 years.
