Whiter headlights offer upgrade opportunity

Published:  27 November, 2018

The new Ring Xenon5000 headlight bulbs match the colour of LED daytime running lamps without HID or LED technology. Modern vehicle lighting often incorporates low energy, very white LED daytime running lamps (DRLs). These emit an attractive white light, with a very high colour temperature –around 6000K. As most cars still have standard halogen headlights, this can lead to an inconsistent look between the white DRLs and the headlights, which will emit a yellow-tinted light, with a colour temperature of around 2700K. Ring’s latest performance headlight bulb –the Xenon5000–is different. This bulb emits a very white light, with a colour temperature of around 5000K. As well as giving an attractive appearance, the whiter light improves reflections from road signs and markings, and the bulbs put up to 50% more light on the road than a standard halogen headlight, making night time driving safer and more comfortable.The new bulbs come in popular H1, H4, H7 and H11 and references. They require no wiring changes and are ECE Reg 37 approved, making them road legal. The H4, H7 and H11bulbs have a stylish silver tip, to blend into the headlamp unit and give a high spec finish. A countertop display unit is also available.

  • Bringing windscreen repair into the 21st century 

    Screen Care Repairs have developed the world’s first NON UV windscreen repair resin. Safe2Bond resins work in exactly the same way as traditional UV curing resin except they cure using 470nm which is the safe part of the light spectrum. Most windscreen repair kits vary little in their basic design and performance. A bridge is required to hold the injector in position over the pre drilled damage to allow resin to be injected, replacing the air inside the break, and then cured using an ultra violet light. Since the 1970s it has become more apparent in all industries that using UV light sources in the workplace is undesirable and alternatives have been sought in most applications. The Control of Artificial Optical Radiation at Work Regulations 2010 brought into UK law the Artificial Optical Radiation 2006/25/EC Directive. This imposes legal duties on employers to protect workers who may be at risk from artificial UV light exposure. Even low level UV light sources such as windscreen repair lights should be avoided if possible. The Safe2Bond NON UV resins have been developed in house by Screen Care Repairs based on the success of the company’s NON UV glass bonding adhesives. This eliminates the need for UV windscreen repair light sources.
