real UV LED Strip for Interior Car Glow
Some black lights don't make white glow and some make them glow a lot. I am currently redoing the interior of my car white, and I want to install black lights to make the interior of the car glow (a lot, not a little). Will you're black lights do that? How many would you suggest that I need? I also saw that if we don't like them that we can return them as long as we haven't cut them. How long do I have to return them?
For installations where the optimal fluorescent effect is desired, we would recommend using the 365nm version of our realUV™ LED Strip Lights. We have attached a blog post below regarding the differences between the available options, in the hope that it proves to be useful.
Generally speaking, while the 395nm version will emit more visible purple hues from the LEDs due to being closer to the visible 400nm visible wavelength of light, the 365nm will emit very little visible light but will produce the most pronounced fluorescent effect as it is further from the visible wavelength.
In regards to returns, so long as the LED strip lights have not been cut or altered, simply reach out to us within thirty days of delivery and we will gladly provide a prepaid return label so that the items can be returned for a refund.
As you can tell from the irradiance pattern document below, the fluorescent effect diminishes the further the subject is from the lights. As such, the ideal quantity of light strips for your vehicle installation might vary depending on the size of the vehicle as well as the distance between the lights and the targeted subject.
Both the 365 nm and 395 nm wavelengths fall under the UV-A wavelength range, which is a weaker form of the ultraviolet radiation that is found in natural daylight, so there are fewer concerns than other ultraviolet products that fall under the UV-B or UV-C wavelength ranges. That said, below are some general safety guidelines that we would recommend following:
The ultraviolet emitters have a very high intensity when used at a very short distance, but less so at longer distances. Therefore, ensuring that people or animals do not come in close proximity to the UV source can help reduce the risk of any eye safety issues.
As Ultraviolet energy is mostly invisible to the naked eye, it can be difficult for the vision system to recognize a high level of UV “brightness” and produce a natural response to squint or look away, in the way that natural white light would.
