Reflective surfaces for special applications

accellerate the sanitizing power of UV rays

vega®UV-C is the high-reflective aluminium surface designed specifically to increase the effectiveness of the sanitizing power of modern UV-C light disinfection systems.

vega®UV-C aluminium surface is produced by Almeco applying nanometric layers through PVD technology (Physical Vapor Deposition). The layers composition is optimized to maximize the reflection in the UV-C region of wavelengths (between 200nm and 280nm).
Thanks to a reflection over 91% it is possible to enhance the sanitizing power of this innovative systems and to reduce the exposure time.

vega®UV-C reflective aluminum surface can be used both as a covering for the internal walls of medical equipment and as shaped reflective optics.

Almeco’s optical engineers are able to support you in the development and production of reflectors to control the electromagnetic distribution by focusing or spreading UV-C light according to your needs and spefications.

surfaces for curing, medical and sanitization application

Almeco developed three different types of vega®UV surfaces. These surfaces offer an improved performance compared to anodized materials or other typical reflective surfaces in applications using UV sources.

vega®UV is widely used in curing processes, where the energetic UV radiation is used to initiate photochemical reactions. Several types of inks, coatings and adhesives contain special additives that cause polymerization when exposed to ultraviolet light. The high reflectance of vega®UV can help improve the efficiency of these processes.

Additionally, each vega®UV version has its own specific field of application:

  • vega®UV-A is suitable for suntan lamps, in forensic applications and in the evaluation of gems and art pieces. Many insects can see near UV, so insect traps use these wavelengths to attract them..

  • vega®UV-B finds application in the medical field, for example in light sources for the treatment of psoriasis and other skin conditions 

  • vega®UV-C accelerates the sanitizing action of UV rays. Have a look at the dedicated section here below.

manage the heat

InfraRed Surfaces are the high-reflective aluminium solutions designed specifically by Almeco to manage the Infrared radiation.

They can help to maximize the irradiance by concentrating radiation toward a specific direction or they can spread the radiation incresing the overall uniformity distribution.
Infrared heat can be directed exactly where it is required by the use of optimized reflectors that improve the effectiveness of the irradiation system and reduce the energy waste.
Most products undergo a heating process during the manufacturing phase: eg. paints are cured, adhesives activated, plastics heated prior to forming.
Using the IR systems, the heating is faster and the space requirements are smaller which results in a more cost-efficient and sustainable production chain.
