I'm trying to get some info on AlumiUV and I'm having a hard time finding much about it.
I want to know if when using a UV lamp with a 365 wave length does the wattage make a difference? I see nail drying units with 20 watts up to 78 watts. The 78's are larger for both hands. So I'm not sure if it being larger with more watts will improve the drying time. I tried using a 4' black light and it never cured after 3-4 hours, so I've been looking for another way to cure it.
Do LED's work as well or worse than regular bulbs or does it make a difference?
When I used the search button, I found a few posts, but they were over a year old and the moderator never finished answering the questions. I would appreciate any help you can give me.
Yes the board is still active. I haven't used the UV material myself but if you can't find what you need to know, I'd say to give them a call at 800-447-9344 and ask one of the techs. They're very good about getting answers to you and if they don't answer the phone right away (they use real people not an automated system to answer their phones), give them a couple minutes and call again.
Yes, the board is active....being a niche hobby , the community is rather small.
I've never used AlumiUV...with that being said, being a resin, any heat you can introduce to the curing process will help it. As far as the wattage goes, start some where in the middle and go from there (up or down)...another source would be a food service type heat lamp. You may have to do a few pours to get it dialed in. LED's produce no heat. Keep us posted as to how things turn out.
