ULTRAVIOLET (abbreviated UV)Ultraviolet or UV light is electromagnetic radiation in the part of the spectrum between visible light and X-rays. These wavelengths of light (100-400 nm, which includes UVA, UVB and UVC) cannot be seen by the human eye *but are very bad for your eyes. Be careful if using UV lights to cure resin!* Ultraviolet catalysts can be mixed with resins, which then cure when exposed to UV light. Brand names of pre-mixed UV resins include Solarez and Suncure.
