These lamps efficiently emit near ultraviolet rays at 315nm~400nm which have strong photochemical and fluorescent effects. They use special deep blue filter glass that absorbs visible rays and transmits near ultraviolet rays. Also, two types of phosphor are used with radiation peaks at 352nm and 368nm, respectively. They are used for tests, inspections, examinations, and investigations in various fields, as well as for stage illumination in theaters, nightclubs, advertisements and signboards.

Blacklight blue lamps (BLB) have shape, structural, and electrical characteristics similar to general fluorescent lamps used for illumination. They also have similar lighting circuits.
Therefore, ballasts and glow starters used for general fluorescent lamps can be used for black light blue lamps (BLB) of this type.
*1 Total amount of the ultraviolet rays between 300nm and 400nm.
*2 When the ultraviolet ray output becomes 60% of the initial output (after 100 hours of lighting).
