WHAT ARE GERMICIDAL UV-C ULTRAVIOLET RAYS?

Ultraviolet rays are electromagnetic waves which form part of light. Electromagnetic waves are divided into three main wavelength bands, expressed in nanometres (nm):

  • UV-A (315-400 nm) with tanning properties;
  • UV-B (280-315 nm) with therapeutic and vitamin ā€œDā€ synthesising properties;
  • UV-C (100-280 nm) with germicidal properties.

All ultraviolet disinfection products pose a UV radiation hazard. Use only as directed. Protect eyes and skin from exposure to UV light.
