With the rising popularity and constant improvements in the world of LEDs & Lighting, we love how we now have access to a whole array of different Discrete Component LEDs, from the common Blue, Yellow, Green and Red colours, through to more exciting types like these 390nm UV LEDs, which feature a clear lens for maximum radiance and a medium 5mm size for common applications. Compared to some of the germicidal lamps and other hygiene focused UV consumer goods, these Ultraviolet LEDs don’t put out the potentially dangerous UVC rays, which are often used to rip apart bacteria and ionise the air particles, but instead use wavelengths within the much less harmful UVA spectrum – making them far better and more practical options for fun hobbyist and creative applications.

Although UV Lighting like this can certainly be used for functional applications, such as fake money detection and material identification, they are commonly used for creative and hobbyist purposes, as the UV light does a great job in highlighting neon coatings and other materials. This can really do wonders in sprucing up 3D Printed items or fun décor, and if used in the right way can have dramatic effects on the overall “wow” factor of a project. This is why we love UV LEDs, as their wide versatility and fun functionality open up so many cool opportunities for novel and interesting projects, whether you’re a crazy creative, a backyard scientist, or just a Maker who likes to Make!

Please Note: These units are sold in minimum order quantities of five (5), to save on unnecessary extra costs and try to give you the best possible price.
