SPECTRUM

Unlike broad-spectrum fluorescent tanning lamps or mercury vapor UV lamps, UV LED flashlights are very specific. Their wavelength varies by only by ±5nm. If they are 365nm, the only put out 360nm – 370nm (NOT 385nm). If they are 395nm, they only put out 390nm – 400nm, (NOT 385nm). If they are 405nm, they only put out 400nm – 410nm (NOT 385)

SOLAREZ resins require 385nm to cure properly. If you use a 365nm flashlight or a 395nm or a 405nm, you may get a tacky surface cure or perhaps inadequate adhesion to the base or sometimes a liquid vacuole may appear. All aberrations associated with improper lighting

INTENSITY

The old-style “bulb-like” LEDs from the 1980’s or ’90’s are obsolete compared to today’s SMD (sheet mounted diodes) style chips. They GREATLY exceed the bulb-style lights output, no matter how many of them you have i.e. you can have a bulb-style LED flashlight that has 64 bulbs and still not have nearly the intensity as a single SMD LED.

BATTERIES

SOLAREZ UV flashlights choose to use “Button-Top” Lithium Ion 18650 batteries because they have long-lasting power for thousands of short bursts and are rechargeable many times. There are “flat-Top” 18650 batteries designed for “vaping” machines but these are designed for high-intensity discharges for the vaping needs. Don’t use these in Solarez flashlights. Also, don’t use two CR-123 batteries in series. The voltage is too high.

SHIPPING

There have been so many regulations and changes with respect to the AIR shipping of Lithium batteries that we have decided to sell this flashlight WITHOUT batteries. That way, this flashlight can ship ANYWHERE. We do offer a complete kit with charger and batteries but it is available only to the lower 48 United States. Sorry for any inconvenience.

Newest technology SMD ultra high output flashlight. Cures Solarez resin with the correct wavelength. Typically cures Solarez resin in 30 seconds or less. To reduce resin shrinkage and yellowing you can attenuate the light by moving the flashlight on and off the project. This flashlight takes one 3.7V 18650 battery. You can purchase our Battery Charger Kit. Which contains two 3.7 volt ROEN® rechargeable battery to power your flashlight.

Please note our UV Flashlights are intended for curing small resin projects (less than 2″ diameter), like our Fly Fishing Resins.  Yes it can cure our liquid resins but for larger projects you will need a professional and reasonably powerful artificial UV light source such as fluorescent tanning / bronzing lamps (UV-A), mercury vapor UVlamps, or UV-A LED lights (385nm).  Full direct Sunlight is a great way to cure Solarez UV resins.

    Very simply put, this light works. It will cure the Solarez thick UV resin in seconds…. The finish is clear and bright, tack free as advertised. The light isn’t cheap but it definitely works nicely and makes tying flies for a novice like me a whole lot easier.

    I was very impressed with how fast the light cured the resin. I only have used it on the thin resin so far but I am pleased with the results.

    Great for UV curing of plastic bonding and for finding hidden carpet stains, scorpions, etc. that glow under UV light. I bought an LG manufactured 18650 Lithium Ion rechargeable battery with the terminal button top (not the flat positive terminal) rated at 2500mAH. Be sure the 18650 has the positive terminal “bump” and not the flat terminal. Also make sure it has built-in protection from shorts, overcharging, overdischarging, etc.

    Nice all around product explanation and it works fast on the thin resin. No doubt I made the right choice for a uv light.
    Thanks
