What is UV radiation?
Ultra-violet radiation forms part of the electromagnetic spectrum and is invisible to the naked eye. The wave length of UV radiation varies from 100-400nm, finishing in the blue portion of visible light.
In terms of energy output, the shorter the wavelength of the UV radiation the higher the energy of the light. These energy levels can be subdivided into 4 specific regions:
- UVA-Radiation (400-315nm)
- UVB-Radiation (315-280nm)
- UVC-Radiation (280-200nm)
- VUV-Radiation (200-100nm)
SCH Technologies use UV light technology in curing conformal coatings in both their coating services and in their UV conformal coating conveyors.
