Energy Saving 11W Compact UV Bulb BC

• Saves up to 80% energy!
• Equivalent to a 60W standard bulb• Fits into a standard lamp base• Lasts up to 8 times longer than ordinary lamps• Ideal for parties

Compact fluorescent lamps are a direct replacement for standard light bulbs. However, this bulb has the added feature of a special coating that produces a deep purple light and large amounts of Ultra Violet light. This invisible light is reflected back in the visible spectrum by fluorescent materials and dyes. White clothes glow brightly in the dark, fluorescent paints light up brilliantly! Not suitable for use with dimmers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfection I bought this product solely in hope of solidifying ultraviolet resins, which it does to my complete satisfaction. I've had this (blb) bulb for just over two weeks, keeping it permanently installed in a cheap, portable, plastic, bayonet, clip-on lightbulb socket, which plugs into the mains. I have to place either wet: uv glass glue or a rather expensive 'UV sculpture gel' (sold for finger nails) approximately two inches away from the bulb (which surprised me, for a 60w equivalence*), before exposing them for about 40 seconds and 3 minutes respectively. They harden every time with either the sticky surface layer, I gather characteristic of many such materials, or if submerged in glycerine/mineral oil, a fine sheen. The only other seller of this type lamp on the high street, that I know of, charges £3 more than Maplin and the cheapest widely available uv nail lamps, seem to start at around £40. Brand: Prolite Dimensions: 160mm x 43mm Average life: 8,000h *Nowhere does the bulb nor packaging, allude to energy saving nor 60w.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good. Makes your washed clothes glow, so is definitely a UV light bulb.

Will this bulb work with uv face paint

Asked by: Hotshouse
It will but only emits a very small amount of UV light... For best effects something like this would be much better http://www.maplin.co.uk/p/20w-blacklight-blue-uv-fluorescent-tube-2-feet-length-x-1-inch-diameter-n29ch
