UV-C EXPLAINED

Ultra Violet (UV) disinfection works by using direct rays of UV light to kill germs and bacteria. When it comes to using UV light against the coronavirus, the FDA says UV light works to quickly destroy the outer protein coating of the virus, which then knocks out the virus’ effectiveness.

UV-C frequencies closely match the size of most pathogens  and are uniquely effective at rupturing
their lipid envelope and destroying their DNA.  Multiple studies prove frequencies near 265nm is the most easily absorbed by DNA.  
 

UV-C destroys viruses, bacteria, protozoa, fungi, yeasts and algae.  Simultaneously, UV-C does not
penetrate proteins such as the keratin in our skin, nails & hair or the elastin in our lungs. 

These unique attributes make UV-C an effective disinfection tool

HOW UV-C DESTROYS SARS-CoV-2 (AND PATHOGENS IN GENERAL)

An active
SARS-CoV-2
virus floats in the
air or lands on the
surface of an
object.

A wave of 265nm
UV-C collides with
the virus, rupturing
its protective lipid
shell and exposing
its fragile Ribonucleic
Acide (RNA) strand.

The UV-C wave decouples
the RNA’s adenine compounds,
causing thymine dimers to
“kink up” the RNA.
5mJ/cm  of 265nm UV-C
is sufficient to deactive
99.9% of SARS-CoV-2.

The viral RNA
disintegrates
as the lipid shell
continues to
fracture.

The UV-C can now
be deactivated. The
remaining viral
debris continues to
disintegrate into its
fundamental chemical
compounds.
