How to

RUVA = "Reflector: Ultra Violet A

In short, a RUVA bulb is one that has a built in reflector. Virtually all our bulbs use the RUVA design, although we are unique in this. By putting a reflector inside the bulb, it simplifies the design for you, the end user, as you don't have to worry about reflectors for most applications. Most painted surfaces will NOT reflect UV anyway, so not only is a RUVA handy, it is many times more efficient than a non-RUVA lamps. Comparing a RUVA to a non-RUVA, you generally gain 35-50% more UVA/UVB output on your item, as the UV is reflected inside the bulb, before it passes through the glass, and you have virtually no UV loss due to wave cancellation. Here is a cross section showing what it looks like:
