ClearTech® is a completely new lamp technology that was originally developed by LTI, Ltd. of Hungary in combination with SunMaster® in the USA. It isn't just stronger, or better, or longer lived than regular lamps. It is a completely different kind of tanning lamp technology, which makes comparing it to other lamps difficult, even other SunMaster lamps. You can click on the icon below to read more about the technology, or purchase a kit of 16 to 32 lamps below. Many select SunMaster tanning beds also come with ClearTech lamps as original equipment.
ClearTech lamps use a completely different glass and phosphors, and produce a completely different spectrum than regular lamps. They are noticably brighter, and put out well over 30% more total usable UV than any other lamp at the same wattage. The initial response from salon owners, including reorders, was so strong that we went through 6 months worth of inventory in less than 1 month. To say that they were impressed would be an understatement. You can read what a few had to say here.
Lamps with ClearTech technology look like regular lamps until they are turned on, then they glow a pleasant green.
In short, ClearTech technology makes lamps last up to 1600 hours at maximum output. A ClearTech with 2000 hours on it will still produce more UVA and UVB than most generic lamps. While they cost more than regular lamps, they cost less PER SESSION, so they represent a smart choice for salon owners who are interested in the total cost of running their salon. The intense bronzing action will also insure that your clients are completely pleased, on the first or 1400th hour of lamp life. If you try them, you will never go back to generic replacements again.
Here are some of the advances that are here or will soon be:
100W HO lamp in F59, F71, F72 and F73 sizes. Designed to be legally compatible with the most common Wolff® lamps, and suitable for replacement in all regulated states. High UVB, yet more UVA than even regular RUVA lamps. In a 24-32 lamp bed, will actually time out in the 15 minute area, even though they are compatible with 20 minute beds. Initial tests show lifespan to be at least 1400 hours, and up to 1600 hours, depending on electronics used.
100W to 120W RUVA lamp in F71 size. It is a "hot rodded" version of the ClearTech 20, using the same phosphors but different internals. RUVA (built in reflector) in each lamp, 180 degrees, so it can be used in most beds with as few as 24 lamps. Designed with a cathode/anode set that will perform equally well with 100W, 105W or 120W. Can be used in 160W system, but it is not recommended and will shorten life. Normal life is anticipated to be 1000 to 1100 hours for maximum output. Session times will be in the 10 to 12 minute range, without sacrificing UVA bronzing. The output on this lamp far exceeds any anticipated compatability with any existing lamps, thus can't be used in regulated states unless the bed came with this lamp originally.
160W to 200W VHOR in F71 only. Our most powerful tanning lamp ever for premium commercial beds. Special gas mixture, extended life cathode/anode sets and our highly acclaimed ClearTech phosphor mix make this an 8 to 10 minute tanning time powerhouse. Not legal for salons in regulated states. Anticipated life is 900-1000 real world hours.

ClearTech lamps cost a little more, but with up to twice the life and 30% more total UV than generic lamps, they are the best value. New technology, new ideas, from SunMaster®.
