|UV Blocking Tubing|
This is clear fused quartz glass doped with cerium to block ultraviolet. This glass block all vacuum ultraviolet, nearly all UV-C, UV-B and emit minimum UV-A. It is an ideal material for lamps requiring maximum visible light and to avoid UV exposure to people and materials.
This glass can be supplied in the range between 6mm-60mm outside diameter.
As for light, the shorter the wavelength, the big the
energy. The wavelength of Vacuum UV, UV-C, UV-B are shorter, so they have
bigger energy. UV-C can do great damage to exposed cells. UV-B are
hazardous and are largely responsible for sunburn. UV-B is also largely
blamed for a kind of deadliest skin cancer "malignant
melanomas". This quartz tubing can block nearly all short UV
wavelength which is an ideal material to make lamps for UV protection
Application is as follows:
