Delta Kits, a leader in windshield repair and headlight restoration equipment, developed the Ignite UV LED Light in response to mobile windshield repair technicians asking for a more durable and powerful compact curing light.
Online PR News – 15-December-2012 – Eugene, Oregon – Delta Kits, a leader in windshield repair and headlight restoration equipment, introduces its latest signature product, the Ignite, a new compact LED curing light. This ultra-durable and lightweight UV light provides the perfect combination of size, easy-to-use operation, and power that decreases curing time, an invaluable resource for any mobile windshield repair technician.
Constructed of aluminum, this slip resistant Delta Kits LED light weighs less than five ounces. It utilizes a single high quality, high intensity 365nm UV LED bulb that provides incredible curing power, and speed, eliminating the need for an external electrical source.
Delta Kits President Brent Deines says the Ignite was developed in response to mobile technicians asking for a more durable and powerful compact curing light. Delta Kits has been researching LED technology and testing a variety of battery operated LED and UV lights for more than three years. “Cure time is extremely important to busy windshield repair technicians and with fresh batteries, the Ignite provides a tack free surface cure in approximately 30 seconds, faster than most 12V, 115V, and 230V UV lights.” says Deines.
Florescent UV lights have been the standard for decades in the windshield repair industry but battery operated units are notorious for being under powered, having poor battery life, and lacking the durability necessary to stand up to the demands of a mobile windshield repair technician. While there are a few high quality battery operated florescent UV lights available, the price of those particular models is prohibitive for most windshield repair technicians.
Not all LED lights are created equal. “LED lights that produce UV light in the 395nm+ range are much less expensive and some windshield repair companies have been recommending those for curing, but in our testing that wavelength does not produce the desired results,” says Deines. “Others have been selling low quality 365nm UV lights with multiple bulbs, but those we tested lacked the intensity to cure properly.” The Ignite requires a single 18650 battery or two CR123A batteries (not included).
Delta Kits will be demonstrating the Ignite live at the 12th Annual International Mobile Tech Expo in Orlando, Florida on Friday January, 18 and Saturday the 19th 2013 at booth number 103.
