What is UV-C light
A few of these types of light include, infrared, visible light, ultraviolet, and gamma rays.
We subdivide UV light into three types, UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-C is can not pass the atmosphere.
Since it cannot pass through the atmosphere, pathogens can not build up immunities.
UV-C passes through the weak walls of microorganisms and disrupts their DNA and RNA.
This is essentially a high output transfer of energy that is highly effective at killing germs.
UVC is used in water purification, HVAC systems, laboratories, and hospitals.
It's a chemical free sanitizing method.
UV-C can't pass through standard glass.
It can pass through quartz, which is what our bulbs are made out of. It is completely safe to look at UVC light through standard glass.
The blue light passes through. The ultraviolet (unseen) germicidal light will be stopped in its tracks from glass and other transparent plastics. Making it safe to use in rooms with large windows or glass in the doors.
Benefits of Germicidal UV-C
UV-C light is a proven disinfection method designed to disinfect and sanitize. Apollo uses this same light designed to reduce: germs, viruses, bacteria, and mold.
Apollo has been shown to reduce common strains of bacteria by 99.9%, common strains of mold by 99%, and viruses by 99.997% - all tested in EPA and FDA compliant labs.
UV-C light is used due to it's hyper effective properties for killing germs, and chemical free nature.
It lessens the need to make repetitive heavy chemical applications, and helps maintain an open sanitary environment.
