realUV™ LED Lights

BY WAVEFORM LIGHTING

What is real ultraviolet light?

Ultraviolet light is commonly categorized as being between the wavelengths of 100 nm and 400 nm. These wavelengths are shorter than what human vision is capable of seeing - by definition, ultraviolet is invisible.

That dark purple light you see from other so called "UV LED lights" are not emitting true UV - typically they use nUV (near ultraviolet) dies at approximately 405 nm.

We can certainly see the effects of ultraviolet light through fluorescence in objects illuminated by UV sources, but real UV light is invisible.

Why realUV™?

There are many applications of ultraviolet light, particularly in the UV-A region, which is commonly accepted to be between the wavelengths of 315 to 400 nm. These applications are dependent upon the UV light source providing sufficient energy in this range, and are typically designed with maximum efficiency in the center of this range, approximately 360 nm.

Many UV LED products on the market today will advertise violet light centered at 405 nm as "ultraviolet" - but in reality, this is on the borderline between UV-A and visible, violet light. Only a small percentage of that light energy is emitted as useful ultraviolet radiation.

The result? 405 nm light will create insufficient levels of fluorescence and desired ultraviolet effect.

Introducing realUV™ LED Strip Lights

realUV™ LED strip lights by Waveform Lighting combines the power and effectiveness of 365 nm UV LEDs with the flexible and versatile LED strip form factor.

Simply cut the LED strips to your desired length, and use the pre-applied double-sided tape backing to mount the strip light to virtually any surface.

realUV™ LED strip lights are fully integrated with our LED strip accessories system, including our solderless LED strip connectors, dimmers and power supplies.

With a 3-year warranty, you can be assured that your UV lighting system is backed by our quality guarantee.

★★★★★

"The realUV LED lights at 365nm are fantastic...fluorescent tubes pale in comparison."

Reliable and secure adhesion

Heavy-duty authentic 3M VHB™ brand double-sided adhesive comes pre-attached on the back-side of the realUV LED strip. Simply peel back the plastic and adhere the LED strip to any surface. No heatsinking necessary.

realUV™ LED Flood Lights

realUV™ LED lights are also available as an assembled LED flood light fixture. Our UV LED flood lights are plug-and-play: no power supplies or additional accessories are needed.

Available in both 365 nm and 395 nm in 20W power - an excellent choice for any UV-A lighting installation, including fluorescence and curing applications.
