SureFire's Fluorescenator Flashlight
FOUNTAIN VALLEY, Ca. - SureFire, LLC and Elcometer, Inc. have announced an exclusive distribution agreement for an eye-safe violet LED inspection light developed for the Industrial Protective Coating and Marine Coating Inspection Markets.
“Elcometer is the world leader in the supply & manufacture of a complete range of inspection equipment for both the Coatings and Concrete Industries”, said Francisco “Paco” Palop, vice president of sales for SureFire. ”So this makes them a natural choice to get this very unique product out into the industry.”
The new SureFire “Fluorescenator,” was developed with the needs of the marine and industrial markets in mind and features a virtually indestructible, six-watt, purple Class 1 light emitting diode (LED) module that aids in evaluating the coverage of fluorescing coatings. The Fluorescenator has a beam wavelength of 405 nm (+/- 5nm), which the human eye perceives as purple light. This “purple” wavelength is particularly useful in revealing any voids or pinholes in a coating’s coverage, which could lead to potential damage.
The Fluorescenator is powered by two three-volt 123A lithium batteries, which provide 45 minutes of runtime. It features a click-on/off push button on its patented lockout tailcap, which prevents accidental activation during transport or storage. The Fluorescenator’s current is digitally regulated, providing more consistent light output for the useable life of its two batteries. Built to last, the Fluorescenator is constructed from rugged aerospace-grade aluminum, hard anodized with a Mil-Spec Type III finish, and O-ring sealed to protect its electronics from moisture, dust, dirt, or any airborne coating particulates. It features a Pyrex® window with anti-reflective coating and a heavy-duty stainless steel pocket clip to keep the light safely secured when not in use.
The Fluorescenator weighs 6.75 ounces with batteries and is six inches in length. MSRP is $450, and the Fluorescenator is available exclusively from Elcometer, Inc. at 800-521- 0635 or www.elcometer.com.
