With UV light, surfaces can be treated without chemicals and therefore in an environmentally friendly fashion.
Hygiene and sterility play an important role especially in the production and processing of packaging materials and food. UV disinfection significantly reduces the number of active germs on surfaces during packaging and on conveyor belts.
UV (pre-) treatment of surfaces is applied in many other industries as well. For example where materials are wetted, coated or glued, previous UV activation simplifies and improves the treatment process and thus saves time and costs.
Where surfaces are wetted, coated or glued, previous treatment is becoming necessary increasingly often. Surface activation and cleaning with innovative UV technology is often a simple, material-friendly and cost-efficient alternative to conventional methods such as roughening and flame treatment.
For example, LCD displays are cleaned with UV lamps during production and checked for pixel faults.
