How to
UV Curing

Ed RosenthalEd Rosenthal
One of the most recognized faces in cannabis culture, Ed Rosenthal is renown as a cannabis activist, author and publisher. Initially writing with Mel Frank (the pen name of James J. Goodwin), the two still cross paths at Oaksterdam University, where both are active. Ed's first book, the 1974 publication of The Marijuana Growers’ Indoor/Outdoor Guide, by Level Press, was just the first. Since then, Ed has published a number of books on cannabis horticulture and developed various products for the cannabis growing community.

We first started working with Ed back before we even had Solacure branded lamps. He has done a lot of testing, starting with tanning lamps and has moved on from there. He was the first author to publish the idea of using UV bulbs, initially recommending 10% of the total load being UV lights. We've fine tuned our phosphors and power output so it takes half as many lamps, just two 4' bulbs per 1000w hood, and you only run them half the time, a reduction of 75% of the electricity and 50% of the materials needed, thanks in part to some of Ed's research.

We have more planned with Ed for the future.

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.
