Two foot curing and aging kit
Product DescriptionFor aging materials like wood, curing out lacquer or other finishes, and for curing UV resin that wants 365nm UVA as a primary frequency. This is a blended lamp with mostly UVA, but it has a few percent UVB to reduce bubbles and aid in aging materials. It is very "sun-like" in output, unlike single phosphor lamps. Works for any application you want to replicate the full UV spectrum in a sun like manner.
The most proven and guaranteed way to get maximum oxidation without too much heat. This kit easily scales if you need 8, 12 or 16 lamps. Just order more kits They work for many applications were you want UV curing and lower kits, not just violins, but they are the kit of choice for violin makers. This is a COMPLETE kit with all the parts you need, except the housing. Each contains:
1. Four Solacure SG-1 FR20T12 lamps (2 foot long, 1.5" thick)
2. One Workhorse WH7 high frequency ballast (~30w per lamp at 100,000hz, equals 40w of a regular ballast)
3. 8 (+1 spare) flush mount lamp holders (shunted)
4. Hardware includes screws to mount lamp holders and ballast, plus shims for ballast.
5. Spare wire to chain lamp ends.
6. Ground wire.
7. Six foot power cable plus strain relief to surface or hole mount.
8. Electrical connectors to hook it all together.
9. One pair of clear, UV glasses, for safety.
Basically, it is everything except the fixture to mount it to, which you custom build for your application.
Like all SG lamps, the SG-1- 24" has a built in reflector. Regular lamps (shown left) emit light in all directions, but almost all reflectors will absorb the UV instead of reflect it. By putting in a special reflective coating INSIDE the lamp (right), we can reflect the UV back to the project, before it even has a chance to pass through the glass. The result is up to 50% more UV output on your project. Add that to the superior output and patented technology inside, and you have twice the functional power when compared to any ordinary UV lamp. Patented, tested and proven.
This kit is also fine for any UV curing or materials application that needs medium high output in a compact size. Basically, it is the same price as our violin kit, which has the exact same part, but shorter lamps. The power in this kit is slightly lower, but the wattage per linear foot is slightly higher. Other applications include pool cues, fishing lures and other small or delicate items where space is a concern.
Just add the one kit, then adjust how many you want in your shopping cart.
|Solacure Means Quality|
Solacure ultraviolet lamps aren't just good, we guarantee they are the best or we will give you your money back. Our patented glass is more transparent to UVA and UVB. Our custom cathode/anode sets lets you run 2 to 3 times more power than a standard lamp in the same size. All of our lamps have built in reflectors. We have a lamp for every need.
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. Order online, over the phone, or call us if you need a custom UV lamp made, with fairly low minimums (around 2000 pieces). We can make it happen.
Buy with confidence: We like what we do, and we've been doing it for over 30 years.
