What's True Confidence?


Powerful ultra-violet purification

The threat of viruses and bacteria has never been more present in all our lives. Everyone, everywhere - at home and at work - is constantly aware of the need for cleanliness and disinfection. Now, you can enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing you’ve done more to care for your health—and the people close to you. The answer, UV-C light by OSRAM.

Proven to eliminate up to 99.9% of harmful microorganisms and viruses, including SARS-CoV-2,
this powerful light technology takes cleaning to a whole new level.

Bringing UV-Confidence to every occasion

The recent COVID-19 pandemic brought to light the need for more effective disinfection, not just in public spaces but in our homes and businesses too. OSRAM’s high-quality
UV-C products are designed for a range of personal and professional applications so you can enjoy a more confident clean when you need it most.

UV-Clean air, water & surfaces

Clean air, water, and surfaces are essential for our health and well-being as individuals and communities. Unlike conventional purification methods, which remove certain chemicals and particles (dust, pollen, etc.), UV-C light neutralizes bacteria, bacterial spores, molds, yeasts, and viruses—including SARS-CoV-2.Our range of UV-C solutions give you more control over the quality of the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the surface you touch—empowering you against the unseen.

Frequently Asked Questions

UV-C is a particular wavelength within the light spectrum known as ultraviolet. Derived from the Latin word for “beyond violet”, ultraviolet is a range of electromagnetic radiation immediately below the visible light threshold. There are three types of UV light; UV-A, UV-B and UV-C. While some UV-A and UV-B radiation from the sun reaches earth, causing sunburns and snow blindness in high doses, UV-C light is absorbed in the atmosphere. As a result, no living organisms have developed a natural defense against UV-C—making it an effective method for destroying microorganisms.

UV-C, a high-energy form of ultraviolet radiation, is absorbed by the DNA and RNA of biological organisms. This stimulates the formation of thymine dimers which, in large numbers, disrupt the replication process of cells and leaves microorganisms (such as bacteria and fungi) and viruses unable to reproduce or cause harm. UV-C is also absorbed by proteins. This causes cell walls to rupture and can lead to the death of organisms that protect their DNA with thick cells. UV-C is often referred to as germicidal radiation because of this ability to inactivate microorganisms.

Yes. In fact, the COVID-19 pathogen is particularly vulnerable to UV-C irradiation since it does not form colonies and is spread through tiny droplets of body fluid (aerosols). UV-C light penetrates these aerosols, destroying the DNA and RNA of the SARS-CoV-2 virus.

Viruses like influenza and SARS-CoV-2, as well as other germs and microorganisms, are suspended in tiny droplets of human bodily fluid, called aerosols. These aerosols are dispersed into the air, spreading infectious diseases from one person to another through breathing and contact with the skin. Bigger droplets fall to ground – typically within 1,5m but aerosols stay airborne for very long times. UV-C air purification works by drawing contaminated air inside a closed box and exposing it to contained UV-C radiation, neutralizing up to 99.9% of microorganisms and viruses.

Germs in water can also be treated with UV-C in the same way as germs in air. This technology has been used for many years and is particularly popular for drinking water because, unlike chlorine, for example, it leaves no taste behind. As with air, the irradiation is carried out in closed reaction chambers.

UV-C light is an effective method for destroying viruses, bacteria, germs and other microorganisms on surfaces. Its efficacy is determined by the distance from the source, the amount of radiation, and the duration of exposure. Since UV-C requires direct exposure, it may be necessary to move the light source to reach shadowed areas when disinfecting surfaces that are not flat and smooth. Surface disinfection products with open light fixtures must be used with caution, taking care to avoid exposure to humans, animals and plants at all times.

OSRAM products with closed (or hidden) fixtures are suitable for use around people, pets, and plants as they release virtually no UV-C radiation. The slight blue glow that is sometimes visible is not UV-C but rather a small amount of visible light generated by the low-pressure discharge. This blue light is not harmful and merely indicates activity.

OSRAM open light fixtures products must be used in accordance with strict safety guidelines, which vary by fixture type. The fixtures emitting UV-C radiation throughout a room should never be turned on while people are present.

In most cases, glass walls and windows block UV-C, providing adequate protection for people. However, companies must test for light leakage when installing fixtures.

The number of UV-C products on the market has risen sharply in the wake of the global pandemic. Unfortunately, many of these products are unregulated, ineffective and potentially dangerous due to low quality manufacturing. For your safety, always purchase from a well-known and trusted manufacturer. Closed fixture products should be encapsulated with no emission of UV-C radiation or ozone (OSRAM products are ozone free) and training must be provided for open fixture products, especially those for surface disinfection.

While there are product safety regulations in Europe, manufacturers are not yet required to prove that their product is effective. To avoid fake and defective products, opt for products from well-known manufacturers or look for proof of efficacy from independent test institutes for the product in question.

Manufacturers are responsible for monitoring the safety of their products in cooperation with independent test laboratories (notified body, e.g. VDE, SGS). All UV-C products produced by OSRAM meet the European safety standards.

  • OZONE generated by UV-C has a particular smell. However, all OSRAM products are tested and verified 100% OZONE-free.
  • Small residuals on the inner surfaces decompose and burn up, giving off a smell. This is a common occurrence when using appliances that heat up for the first time, such toasters. The odour only lasts few a few minutes and can be removed with ventilation from an open window.
