The majority of the UVA light output of Quantum tubes is concentrated in the spectrum between 350-380 nanometers.
The special phosphor mix used in Quantum tubes and a quality control system to international standards give high initial UVA output while maintaining more UVA light over the tube’s lifetime (see graph below). As a result, PestWest Quantum tubes guarantee the user highly effective performance throughout their entire life-span.
Quantum tubes meet the most environmentally responsible standards and comply with the requirements of the Restriction of Hazardous Substances (RoHS) directive, under which the manufacture of BL350 tubes has been banned in Europe for environmental reasons.
The Quantum® tubes are manufactured to the highest quality using the latest water based phosphor technology.
Not all shatterproof coatings are the same because their quality depends on the material used.
PestWest Quantum shatterproof tubes are coated with a high quality FEP shatterproof coating which has an excellent UVA transmission of around 95%.
The FEP coating also features excellent impact resistance and guaranteed glass retention. It will not melt, flake, discolour nor drip and complies with international standard EN 61549 for shatterproof tube coatings.
