How to
UV Curing

Confused about uv curing lamps?

Confused which lamp you need?

Solacure lamps are a bit different than generic UV lamps. They can used at many different wattages, so you can dial in the exact power level you want. We have lamps that are high UVB for wood aging and cannabis, and lamps that have low or zero UVB yet high UVA for finish curing. It isn't easy to know exactly what you want, so we are working on getting you more information; simple information that narrows down your choices, and all you have to do is read a couple of paragraphs.

Violin makers love Solacure ultraviolet lamps

Violin Makers Love Solacure

Looking for fast oxidation? You don't have to use UV cure resins, you can get the benefits with linseed oil based products when you use Solacure's SG-1 series lamps. Gently apply a layer of finish, expose a day, repeat for 4 to 7 days and you've created a masterpiece that looks truly aged....because it is. The secret is our proprietary phosphor blend that rapidly accelerates the oxidation process, letting you create the kind of finish that would take months in natural sun light, yet takes less than a week inside. The looks are identical to naturally aged because we use the same processes, we just do it faster. Check out our special UV kit designed specifically for violin builders.
Cannabis / marijuana and UVB

Medicinal Cannabis THC Stimulation

We've worked with dispensaries and growers large and small for well over a decade (we've been making lamps for 30 years, after all), and we know what you need. Lab tests prove that Solacure Universal UV and SG-1 bulbs can increase THC production by 20 to 33%, and the cost per plant is a tiny fraction of the profit from the gain. They use any standard fixture, and we have multi-packs that make them even cheaper. You need more than just "UVB", you need the right frequencies, and we build our UVB lamps around those exact frequencies. The science proves it: UVB helps, UVB with Solacure helps more.

Age wood naturally

Thousands of craftsmen choose Solacure to age wood naturally. Matching new cabinets to old? Want to make instant antiques? Need to give instruments or other wooden items a dark oxidized look that is far superior to fake looking spray on "antique" finishes? Shine some light on them. In just a few days, you can add decades to the look of fine wood projects. We typically use musical instruments to show what you can do, but the principle is the same for any wood, including the guitar shown to the left, which was done in a week using a low power rig and just a few lamps. Using it to check finishes, age wood or make anything new look like a antique in no time. Look at our projects to see what can be done.

Solacure Means Quality

Solacure ultraviolet lamps aren't just good, we guarantee they are the best. We don't use stock parts anywhere in our products. Our glass is a special blend, and more transparent to UVA and UVB. Our 32 watt lamps use 60 watt rated cathodes and are tested at almost 70 watts of power. Almost all our lamps have built in reflectors. All are designed to be overdriven to extra high wattages. We test, and test, and test our lamps.

We stand behind everything we sell and guarantee each will perform exactly to specification, or we will replace them. We don't want your business this week, we want it every week, and we are willing to earn it. There really is a difference in quality when it comes to ultraviolet bulbs, and Solacure tops the list.

Buy with confidence: We like what we do, and we've been doing it for over 30 years.
