UV LED strips that don't emit purple or violet light
Ultraviolet (UV) LED strips I have purchased in the past emit a lot of purple / violet light. Does your product emit any purple or violet light?
We would recommend our realUV LED strip lights with the 365 nm wavelength option to minimize the amount of visible purple or violet light. Many LED strips on the market will market themselves as a UV light strip but will have an actual peak wavelength at 400 nm or higher. The result is a significant amount of violet and purple light emission.
We also offer a 395 nm version, and you can read more about how wavelength affects the amount of visible light emitted: https://www.waveformlighting.com/tech/what-is-the-difference-between-365-nm-and-395-nm-uv-led-lights
Our 365 nm LED strips emit most of their energy in UV region, which is not visible to the naked eye. A trace amount dull, bluish-white light can be observed from our 365 nm sources.
