These Optivex UV glass filters eliminate more than 99% of UV radiation. Choose your own diameter or order a custom size by phone to protect textiles, historical documents, or works of art from photochemical degradation.
  • The Optivex UV filter is a dichroic glass filter that is extremely durable, resisting abrasions and cracking; lasts significantly longer than plastics or gels. To clean Optivex UV glass filters use NON-ammonia based, commercially-available glass cleaning agents. They may be applied directly to the filter but do NOT immerse or soak Optivex filters in any cleaning solutions. Cleaning agents containing harsh chemical or abrasive detergents may cause scratches or deterioration of the special film that has been deposited on the glass.

Question from Mark:

I have halogen track lighting with glass UV filters. If I hold my transition lenses eyeglasses up to the light, the lens darkens leading me to assume that the glass filter is not filtering out the UV radiation. Will the Optivex filter, block the UV radiation that is turning my transitions lenses dark.

Answer from Pegasus:

Mark, these UV filters UV blocking exceeds 99% for all radiation below 400 nanometers in wavelength. I do not know how sensitive transition lenses are or what amount of UV triggers them but I do know that they don't transition in the car because of the windshield filtering UV. My expectation is that the Optivex filters would be adequate to prevent the glasses from transitioning.

Question from Dan:

I'm confused on my lights. They are all Halogen 50W MR-16's RM2P/GU5.3 Base. There is a UV lens reading UV filter-001. However, there is no clips or anything, it sort of just fell off and appears there may be some type of adhesive? Does that sound right? Do they make an adhesive to stick them on to the bulb? Also, how do I get this bulb out, there is no room for hands to fit in because of the fixture. Thanks!

Answer from Pegasus:

Dan, I have never heard of adhesive being used to attach a filter. We do carry clips that allow for them to attach. It can be tricky to remove MR16 bulbs sometimes. They are a bipin so they just need to be pulled straight out. You may have to remove part of the fixture to do this.

Question from Linda Turner:

How do they attach to the existing fixture?

Answer from Pegasus:

Linda, Generally the fixtures will have clips for attaching. If the fixtures do not, then the manufacturer may have an accessory that will allow the clips to attach. For MR16 light bulbs, we offer a clip accessory - http://www.pegasuslighting.com/clip-on-holder.html

Question from andrea:

Last question, promise! I use a 700w short arc lamp (osram sharxs) , change anything if the watt is so' high? i use the lamp for projection, it's ok?.Thanks

Answer from Pegasus:

Yes, that high of a wattage concerns me. That is an extremely powerful light bulb. These filters we carry are intended for use with PAR type light bulbs that do not come close to that wattage.

Question from Andrea:

Hello, I'm interesting on this filter 5,4 inch , just 2 question, which is the temperature max (about) and is a filter for all uv a/b/c (sorry for my ignorance in uv range) ? Thanks P.s. Do you shipping to Italy?

Answer from Pegasus:

Andrea, It filters 99% for all UV radiation below 400 nanometers in wavelength. That includes UV A/B/C. This item is made of glass, so it has to be very hot for it to cause damage. Yes, we ship to Italy.

Question from Dan:

Hi! I have some halogen light fixtures that came with our house when it was new. Once, when changing a bulb, I accidentally misplaced a circular glass fixture. I wanted to see if I could track down a replacement. I took a picture of one of the remaining ones. It appears to read UV-001. Would this Optivex UV Glass Filter be a suitable replacement? It's an MR16 type fixture.

Answer from Pegasus:

Dan, Yes, this should be a good replacement. Select our smallest size designed for MR16 lamps.
