Different types of UV Lights
« on: September 02, 2017, 06:07:24 AM »
Mention UV lights and our senses are on alert. Is it radioactive!! :o
Our Sun is known to radiate UV light in all known wave lengths.

UV Lights are divided by their wavelength and are as follows:
  • Longwave - UVA (315 to 400 nm), also known as black light, which causes tanning
  • Mediumwave - UVB (280 to 315 nm), which causes damage in the form of sunburn
  • Shortwave - UVC (100 to 280 nm), which is filtered out by the atmosphere and never reaches us.


As can be seen from the list, Shortwave UV Rays known as UVC are the most dangerous while those operating under the Longwave (UVA) are safe. 

Our UV Light reactive products work on the longwave frequencies and only react to the UV Black Lights 8) which radiate such wavelengths.
