MORE THAN LIGHTING: RUTRONIK SHOWS INNOVATIVE APPROACHES WITH UV LEDS

For industry, medicine and public infrastructure: The use of UV LEDs offers new approaches in the fields of sterilization, deep cleaning of air and water, agriculture and industrial manufacturing. The ultraviolet A-rays are suitable for use in vertical farming, for example, while the extremely high-energy UVC rays are successfully used against harmful micro-bacteria and viruses.

Effective against multi-resistant pathogens

Bacteria, viruses, spores and germs absorb 265 – 280nm light emitted by UVC LEDs. As a result, their DNA/RNA bonds are broken so that reproduction is no longer possible. Especially when used against multi-resistant microorganisms, UVC LEDs are the optimal solution. This also applies to situations that require comprehensive surface or water disinfection – without the use of chemicals or thermal disinfection – as in drinking water treatment.

For better air and solid connections

A photo catalysis (= chemical reaction triggered by light), which is stimulated by UVA energy with 365~385nm, is used to decompose bacteria, viruses, harmful gases or odours, for example in air purification.

UV curing, quite well known by nail studios, is a process in which ultraviolet light initiates a photochemical reaction that produces a stable polymer network. It is mainly used when rapid curing is required, for example in printing processes, coating, decoration, stereo lithography or the assembly of components.
