Product Description
This is a new kit designed for creating your own hand held or simply portable spot curing rig. At the heart of it is three SG-1-20 bulbs. These are 20" long, 1.5" in diameter, use 100w rated lamp ends like the big SG-1 lamps, the same phosphors and reflector system. It is literally a small version of the exact same lamp, so it can go places a 6 foot bulb can't.

Next, we power this in a very special VHO mode using one of our favorite power sources, the Workhorse 8. Then we DOUBLE the standard power by using two red leads per lamp instead of one, so you are running in VHO mode (Very High Output). This pushes you to 27 watts in a 15 watt package (don't worry, the lamp can handle even more than this, it is that tough). The ballast is around 19" x 1" x 2", aluminum casing and has all the wire you will need, except for connecting to the 120v power source.

We also include 6 heavy duty lamp ends. These are surface mount, single screw style. You can throw together a frame from aluminum "L" or "C" channel, using a couple of self-tapping, flat bottomed screws, connect any AC power cord and have a hand held device in an hour. Because the ballast is about the same length as the bulbs, it is trivial to connect to the same frame. Just add a handle and you are in business, with around 90w worth of extremely high efficiency UVA plus a touch of UVB to prevent bubbling. And since each lamp has its now built in reflector, you can make an open frame, or any frame for that matter, and not have to worry about any type of reflector system: We've taken care of that for you.

This also a great way to add UV in the bottom or top of a UV curing chamber that uses the 6 or 4 foot SG lamps, and will match the spectrum 100% for guaranteed perfect curing results.

The kit price is just the standard price of the components. We do add a length of wire free, to make chaining easier. You build the frame, we have the parts.

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.

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