LightSources’ strategic European partner, LightTech, owns and operates one of the most advanced glassworks in Europe. The ultra-modern facility, located in Dunakeszi, Hungary, was opened in 2001 and manufactures and sells open, closed, FS and germicidal glass along with our proprietary SolGlass®. The plant allows us to control the entire process, and our customers benefit by our ability to offer short runs and quick turnaround with the upmost quality control.
By manufacturing the four major glass types used in most lamps, our customers can readily obtain the products they need whether it is general lighting or our specialty tanning, dermatological, and ultraviolet germicidal lamps. Our twenty-acre facility has internal chemistry and phosphor capabilities, which means we can also provide clients customized and proprietary lighting solutions.
LightTech’s Closed Glass is a popular choice in the tanning industry especially throughout Europe. It emits more UVA and offers the least amount of UVB energy. In North America, Open Glass is more commonly used in tanning applications. With 297nm and approximately a 35% transmission, it offers a more balanced ratio of UV-A and B light to pass through the glass.
Another type of glass produced at our manufacturing facility is FS Glass, which is used for dermatological purposes to treat specific skin conditions. Its properties are right between open and closed glass and uses a very narrow band phosphor for pure UV-B lamps.
Our Germicidal Soft Glass is used in applications to treat and sterilize air, water, and surfaces from bacteria, viruses and pathogens. This is the most open glass and allows for the highest UV transmission of 91%. The other type of glass produced at the glasswork facility is our SolGlass®, which is based on the combination of new glass technology and a proprietary phosphor blend.
LightSources and our strategic partner LightTech, along with our affiliated companies, represent the leading high-tech designers and manufacturers in the lamp industry today. Our products are used world-wide in a multitude of applications and industries such as our UV germicidal lamps that offer patent-protected, OEM-oriented solutions.
