GULFF 365UV

THE GULFF 365 UV FLASHLIGHT IS A POWERFUL AND PROFESSIONAL SOLUTION FOR USE IN FLY TYING.

A 365nm wavelength UV flashlight is, in most cases, the best option, optimally suited for UV resin curing. The 395-405nm UV LED lights that are now commonly used do not provide as much light in the wavelengths that best activate the resin. The Gulff 365nm wavelength LED produces a spectrum of light that best matches the absorption spectrum of the photoinitiator that is in most UV-curable resins.

 

The Gulff flashlight’s UV light appears whiter than the light of 395nm lights. This is because the human eye cannot discern UV light when the wavelength is clearly below 400nm. In this case, the light only becomes visible when it strikes a surface that reflects UV light.  Experts do not recommend using inexpensive lights with uncertain wattage for resin curing. Their wattages and advertised wavelengths can vary considerably. Note that, for example, the advertised wattage in inexpensive versions is often only the maximum possible wattage. There are a number of things that affect the ability to reach this maximum, from the LED to the structure of the flashlight (or other light source) used.

HOW TO GET QUALITY RESULTS

 

The resin should be cured by taking a UV flashlight and holding it at a distance of 1-2 cm from the surface of the resin, evenly directing the light towards each side of this surface. With a powerful light, colourless GULFF UV resins will cure in a matter of seconds. We recommend using the GULFF UV flashlight.

 

After curing, allow the surface of the resin to cool for about 5 seconds, without touching it. If the resin surface has been cured properly, it will be either shiny or matte, depending on the choice of resin, but it will always be free of stickiness.

 

However, if the surface of the resin remains sticky for a long period of time after being exposed to the light, ensure that the flashlight’s batteries are at full power, that the flashlight was at a distance of about 1 cm from the resin, and that the fly does not contain any oily materials. Note that coloured resins take longer to cure than clear ones. Also, remember to change / charge your flashlight’s batteries appropriately often: even a small decrease in battery power will reduce the effectiveness of curing.
