Lately there has been a lot of buzz around our shop about the UV resins, and unfortunately as most things are generally followed by assumptions and complete misinformation. Throughout this I will be covering the basics of all this, and in anything I am more than happy to run over any of this at the shop here and explain how that UV products are not some voodoo witchcraft product scheming for your hard earned money.
The biggest cluster that I have seen fly around is that all UV lights are equal….. that could not be further from the truth. Legit companies such as Loon, Clear Cure develop lights that cure their products correctly. Cutting corners where they have honed in these products to cure at certain ultraviolet spectrums and wattages seems a little counterproductive doesn’t it?? Just because there is a sticky shell like substance on the outside does not mean that the product is cured.
Back in the day…….. 10 miles uphill both ways just to get our UV fix.
As far as lights, another topic of mass confusion. No you do not need the premium $60-$70 light to make these products work. The difference between that and the $30 model is more or less time. With a premium light I can hit the UV product for a couple of seconds and it is cured all the way through, where the $30 light I would have to let sit for 10-12 seconds. They both work, they just have their own places just like any other products out on the market. There is a reason that both Loon and Clear Cure offer two levels of lights. It’s the difference between a Ford Fiesta and a Bentley.
Overall these are some AWESOME products that we have been spoiled with. Use them correctly and you will love them. Cut corners and you will likely have nothing short of complaints. I am more than happy to demonstrate the uses, benefits of these products and the faults of cutting corners.
If you have questions on products such as these ask the professionals at your local shop. We do our best to stay on the cutting edge, and any shop worth their salt will back their products as we do……….. support your LOCAL shop!!
