Product Description
For 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. This is our highest power kit, per linear foot.

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 FR40T12 lamps (4 foot long, 1.5" thick)
2. Two Workhorse WH8 high frequency ballast (~80w per lamp at 100,000hz, equals 100w 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, plus ground wire.
6. Four Jumper wires to connect 3 ballast wires to one lamp holder
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.

Rated for over 80w output per lamp, 320w per kit. Easy to wire. The strongest kit we sell. Designed for the fastest aging and curing. Will produce a respectable amount of heat, so not suitable for delicate materials. Comes with instruction sheet as this is a modified wiring system, unlike regular ballasts. Still simple to do and doesn't really require more time to accomplish. The diagram below shows the basics.

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.
