Growing market for UV-C disinfection 

Autonomous UV-C sanitising robots are becoming the preferred choice in the health care market. Even before Covid-19, hospitals and medical institutions invested huge resources, staff and time into manual disinfection. Sanitising robots offer great savings potential here.

Sanitising robots need highly reflective surfaces

The known problems with germs in health care facilities have a new, powerful opponent: disinfection robots. They use ultraviolet light (UV-C) to sterilise patient, operation, and examination rooms. When the room is unoccupied, they switch on their powerful UV-C light and cruise the room to sterilise every surface and destroy air-borne viruses.

To use the maximum efficiency of their optics and to deliver the UV-C light to where it is needed, they depend on highly effective reflectors. MIRO® UV-C was specifically designed for this.

Alanod’s MIRO® UV-C reflects and directs UV-C rays 

The surface of MIRO® UV-C reflects over 90% of the UV-C spectrum which makes it the perfect material for reflectors in sanitising devices. It is the ideal reflector material to direct the UV-C light to where it can disinfect surfaces and kill viruses and bacteria.

But UV-C light is known to be aggressive, leading to a deterioration of standard reflective surfaces. Not so MIRO® UV-C: It is proven to lose less than 1% of reflectivity over more than 1,000 hours.
