Product Description and Specification of UV Curing Lamp

UV (Ultra Violet) curing is a photochemical technique that uses UV light to rapidly cure inks, paints, adhesives, varnish, and other finishing ingredients using ultraviolet light generating lamps. A UV lamp contains a quartz glass bulb or a tube filled with gas and two electrodes at the ends. When it receives the power, it generates an arc between them, heating and raising the pressure of the gas and emitting light. It produces a spectrum depending on the gases and chemicals inside the bulb.

As this approach does not require solvents, UV curing lamps stand out for their adaptability and functionality in any ultraviolet application. Its primary application is the curing of materials before polymerization and oxidation. The formulation hardens or cures in a matter of seconds and is then ready for the next processing step. Instead of heat, the UV process relies on ultraviolet light. Therefore, we use the term cure in place of dry. The lamp classification takes place according to the spectrum of its light or the way it emits or spreads that light.

UV lamps are manufactured with various doping depending on the quantity of ultraviolet radiation required. The most frequent is mercury vapor. However, depending on the treatment and intended spectrum, they may also have gallium, iron, lead, and other elements.

The visible parts of the spectrum and UVA 300 to 460 consist of a concentration of energy production. We provide a complete assembly that includes a 200-watt lamp set in an elliptically focused glass reflector. The lamp emits no ozone and is perfect for light-curing adhesives, potting, and UV coatings. To improve light performance, we vacuum deposit a dichroic coating that reflects UV while transmitting infrared (IR) through the reflector. As a result, there is maximum UV and minimal heat. Because we give the entire assembly, replacing a bulb takes less than a minute.

All high and low coats begin as films and use UV light for curing. These both support B-stage curing, which implies that a third party can partially cure the film. Then the laminates are sent for application to the substrates and curing. Our High Output (HO) UV lamps are comparable in size and form to standard UV curing lamps, but they can operate at greater power and current levels. These lamps are exceptionally engineered to deliver up to 70% more UV output than standard germicidal lamps.

Types of lamps

Lamp with mercury vapor

A mercury vapor UV lamp is a gas discharge lamp that produces light by passing an electric arc through evaporated mercury. Usually, the arc discharge is contained within a tiny fused quartz arc tube installed within a larger borosilicate glass bulb. The wavelength range 184 and 253 nm are present in low-pressure mercury vapor lamps. In the production process, synthetic quartz can be applied to prevent 184 nm light from consumption. Lines from 200 to 600 nm are seen in medium-pressure mercury vapor lamps. The lamps emit mainly in the UV-A (400 nm) or UV-C (250 nm) wavelength ranges. For general illumination, researchers often use high-pressure mercury vapor lamps. They mainly emit blue and green light.

Fluorescent lamp

Fluorescent lamps are utilized for UV curing in a variety of applications. It is famous for curing an object’s surface when it requires more than a singular light source. It often finds applications where the extreme heat of mercury vapor is unsuitable.

LED lamps

LEDs have the advantages of immediate turn-on/off, rapid and consistent curing, low heat
emission, and low power consumption.

Applications of UV Curing Lamp

UV curing has made its way into many industries, including electronics, graphic arts, label printing, CD-DVD replication, and wood finishing. It is mainly used to cure the resins, nail, automotive, conducive ink and paints. Ultraviolet lamps can be used in forced duct systems as well as water treatment. It is often employed in odor control and photochemical applications.

How to Use UV Curing Lamp?

Turn on your UV light and make any changes that are required. After preparing and applying the base coat, place the tools under the UV lamp for 60 seconds. Wait a little longer before applying the base coat. Apply the layers once the foundation has cured.

Safety Measures

UV radiation is the most dangerous threat. UV curing devices generate visible light emissions from UV. Although UV radiation cannot be seen or felt right away, it is detrimental to human tissue in the eyes and skin. The hazard may not be apparent to the user until the exposure has caused damage. Symptoms might appear four to twenty-four hours following exposure.
There are two sorts of cutaneous effects: acute and chronic. Acute effects manifest themselves after a few hours of exposure, but chronic impacts are long-lasting and cumulative and may not manifest themselves for years.

Erythema, or skin redness, is a severe side effect of UV exposure (similar to sunburn). Chronic consequences include premature aging of the skin and skin cancer. Working without protection for even a few minutes might result in damage. It is reasonable to compute acute effect thresholds and set exposure limits. However, calculating a point for chronic impacts is impossible; hence, because no exposure level is safe, exposure should be decreased to avoid any reactions.

Personnel should be taught about the safe use of UV equipment. When working with or near UV light, lab professionals should be conversant with the following:
• Never look straight at the UV bulb. Avoid looking directly at any UV source (e.g., an arc lamp) from any distance.
• Limit exposure time to a minimum, and keep as far away from the source as possible if it is not contained or protected.
• Limit access to those directly involved in the operation of the UV source.
