While UV light, specifically UV-C, is known for its ability to destroy microorganisms, light in the visible spectrum between 400-405nm ranges also shows some germ-killing properties, but what's the difference between these two types of light source?
The disinfecting properties of sunlight lie specifically in the UV spectrum, which makes up nearly 10% of total solar light output. UV disinfection is a chemical- and toxin-free alternative that works just as well, or even better than chemical treatments.
The use of ultraviolet (UV) sterilization is quickly growing as a safe, non-toxic, and cost-effective alternative to chemical disinfection. Learn more about why UV LED is the future of disinfection technology.
