Q: Can I use the light of a counterfeit money detector?
A: Due to different wavelength emitted, the adhesive may cure eventually, but     will not reach the desired strength.

Q: How long can I wait between pre-curing and final curing?
A: Maximum 1-2 hours, but the bonding area should not be exposed to sunlight     during that time. However, usually final curing is done shortly after     pre- curing.

Q: Can I use a lamp I already have?
A: Only if it is a lamp designed for UV bonding. Any other UV lamps will emit a     different wavelength of UVA light and are not recommended.

Q: Do I need a UV lamp?
A: Yes, you will need a special lamp, which triggers the adhesive’s reaction at     the correct UVA wavelength of 320-400 nm.

Q: Can I use a lamp from a sun-bed?
A: No, due to a different wavelength emitted, the adhesive may cure     eventually, but will not reach the necessary strength.

Q: Can I use sunlight for curing?
A: Generally, it is possible to activate the polymerisation process of the     adhesive by sunlight, as sunlight is a natural source of UV Light. However,     due to the missing concentration of the correct wavelength no sufficient     bonding strength will be reached. We strongly recommend not to natural     sunlight for curing.

Q: What is the lifetime of a lamp?
A: Most lamps last for approx. 3,000 hours. In time, the intensity of the UV rays     weakens, which results in longer curing times. The life of the bond depends     on the use of the lamp.

Q: Is the light harmful to the eyes or skin?
A: Yes, we do not recommend looking at the light directly and the use of our
UV     Protective Eyewear.
