Conservation

UV blacklights for enabling conservators to reveal evidence of imperfections, restoration and repair to items such as paintings, paper, books and ceramics, which are not easily visible under normal lighting.

Other applications include detection of forgeries, mould and enhancement of difficult to read print on paper and parchments.

The inspection of works of art under UV blacklight is a means of revealing imperfections and evidence of restoration, an important aspect of authentication for valuation and sale.

We have a wide range of UV blacklights for fluorescent inspection, your equipment selection criteria should be based on your particular process requirements:

  • UV wavelength (usually 365nm for fluorescent inspection applications)
  • Minimum UV irradiance levels (dictated by working standards or ambient light levels)
  • Inspection area (exposure should be restricted to the working area)

Our friendly, helpful team have over 50 years experience in helping organisations implement a safe and effective UV light process, so should you wish to discuss you requirements or request a quotation for suitable solution, please call 0121 423 2000 or send us a message.
