Are your realUV™ LED strip lights waterproof?
Our realUV™ LED strip lights are not waterproof and should not be used outdoors or any location where they may potentially be exposed to water or moisture.
Some of our customers have opted to create their own waterproof sleeve / tube to house the LED strip lights. This can indeed be a viable solution, as long as the sleeve or tube material allows ultraviolet to pass through. Since many plastic and commercial-grade glass materials block UV wavelengths, we recommend a specialty solution such as quartz glass.
As an alternative, our realUV™ LED flood lights are IP65 rated and may be an effective option for a directly waterproof lighting solution.
