About Ultraviolet UVB Lighting

The UVA part of the electromagnetic spectrum is between 280-315nm. Broadband UVB lamps have been used since the 1970s, while narrowband UVB lamps were introduced in 1988.

Some important uses for UVB light bulbs and fixtures include the following:

  • Phototherapy
  • Dermatology, the treatment of skin conditions like psoriasis, dermatitis, lymphomas, and vitiligo
  • Ultraviolet curing of materials in manufacturing processes
  • Germicidal applications
