As the demand for ultraviolet light LED technology for disinfection, sanitation, purification and curing purposes continues to grow, American Bright has launched a UVC LED product line in a 3535 ceramic package with a quartz lens to fulfill market requirements in several applications.


UV light wavelength



·     The UV wavelength period can be generally separated to UVA (310-400nm), UVB (280-310nm), and UVC (200-280nm).

·     UVA would be closest to the blue light and UVC is the furthest, which makes it invisible to human eye.


UVC LED Application


·     UVC: Surface sterilization, air/water sterilization, bacteria/virus disinfection


Water treatment



American Bright’s Offering


UVC 3535 LED Series
American Bright’s UVC LEDs can be widely applied on:

1. Water disinfection

2. Surface disinfection

3. Air disinfection

4. Medical devices

5. Phototherapy




1. 3535 Ceramic package

2. Quartz lens material

3. Wavelength: 270-280 nm

4. Wide option of power output from 1.5mW to 25mW

Why is Horticultural Lighting Purple?

Using artificial lights to grow plants has been happening since the 1970s. At first, this was with fluorescent or incandescent lightbulbs, although as time moved on, and research and experimentation took place, it became obvious that LEDs were the way forward. Research conducted by NASA in the 1980s and 90s proved that not only the intensity of light used had an effect on growing crops, but also the wavelength, or colour, of the light involved.

The way LEDs are designed means that their light output is down to a fairly narrow wavelength band, meaning that they would typically give out only one colour of light. This meant that scientists could find out exactly what each type of light did to the plants they were trying to grow.

The results showed that plants grew well when subjected to red light wavelengths, yet did even better when this red light was mixed with a small amount of blue light. As well as being used in photosynthesis, blue light also regulates the opening of stomata, the tiny holes in the leaves of a plant used for water and carbon dioxide intake. This is why red light, being the main driver of photosynthesis, with a little blue added makes for a great combination for growing plants.

This is the reason why horticultural lighting is often purple in colour. It’s a combination of blue and red LEDs working together to promote growth.

American Bright have developed LED horticultural lighting that are not only tuned to precise wavelengths to stimulate growth, but can also be adjusted, to ensure you provide the perfect light for your plants, no matter how new they are.

Seasons Greetings from Steadlands!

As we move through the festive season and prepare to approach 2020 we, as always, would like to remember those less fortunate than ourselves. In keeping with our tradition, rather than spend money on cards, for our valued customers and suppliers we have once again purchased charitable gifts from the CAFOD World Gifts collection. This year we have chosen gifts relating to business, food, health and education, which include helping a family start a new bee keeping business, creating vegetable gardens as well as drought resistant crops and to set up a fruit tree nursery –  enabling them to both feed themselves and provide income. Each year we try to purchase mosquito nets to protect babies and children – Peter loves nothing more in the world than his 6 year old Granddaughter, Grace, and can’t begin to imagine how the parents, grandparents and families feel when mosquito-borne diseases take effect on their loved ones! Finally this year, having had a breakthrough with Grace’s reading ability, we’ve chosen the gift of teaching someone to read – opening up endless new possibilities for them and their families.


We are, as always, delighted that such gifts have been well supported by our business colleagues for more than a decade since we started celebrating the Christmas and New Year period this way.

Everyone at Steadlands would like to wish our customers and suppliers an enjoyable and peaceful Christmas and we look forward to working with you all towards an exciting and prosperous 2020!
