Who are we

 

UV ONE Hygienics, Inc., is a UV light research and development company that has invented UVx, a new technology that strengthens the effectiveness and safety of every known UV light wave known to science, while reducing exposure time to sterilize any surface. UVx can be applied across the entire UV spectrum. This will impact every user-case for UV light sterilization.

 

The two primary engineers who are driving the innovation have previously invented market-leading technologies, including a medical device that became an industry standard (laser scalpel knife); and in a related field years’ prior, UV water sanitation. In addition to virus (COVID) and bacteria sanitation, we are integrating UV light into our viral load analysis, detection and identification system, which is in an advanced stage of development. Two patents are in the process of being finalized and ready to file with more to follow. Finally, and of equal importance, is automation partnership that will aid in producing the highest-quality UV products at the lowest prices. The end result: Best product, Best price, Locally produced factory automated manufacturing.  

 

We intend to design, patent, and market a complete commercial UV light sanitation solution to get businesses functioning again while helping them provide a safer, cleaner environment for their employees. Three products have already been designed with the participation of our leading engineers and physicists. The company projects $16 million in sales in year three. The company expects to have $50 million in revenue by year five. 

 

The market segments are clearly defined and all are subject to a high growth trend. The UV light market is projected to exceed $5.5 billion by 2025. 

 

 

Problem

 In the beginning of 2020, the world began to learn of a highly contagious virus, COVID-19. By March, it had spread to every corner of the world; businesses and schools shut down; the economy came to a halt; and the worldwide lockdown began.  

 

As governments and medical professionals began to get a handle on the virus, the focus shifted towards how to get people back to work, children back to school, and the world's economy back on track.  

 

The biggest challenge businesses, schools, and public spaces continue to face today is how to safely bring people back together, while maintaining a high level of sanitation safely, thereby mitigating the chances of any virus spreading and minimizing the impact to daily operations. This challenge applies to not only COVID-19, but to all pathogens, including viruses, bacteria, and molds.  

 

Currently, the standard for sanitation is hand sanitizer, hand washing and social distancing. These all provide minor impacts on sanitation, but lack a large degree of safety.  

 

Having been studied for more than 100 years, UV light is far from new. The industry has amassed a large collection of scientific studies validating its effectiveness in killing pathogens of all kinds. UV light is currently being used in a wide array of settings although the type of spectrum and quality of light bulb used varies tremendously. This, in turn, impacts safety and effectiveness.  

 

When UV light is used for sanitation, it's rarely, if ever, used in a way that ensures a high level of sanitation, quickly and safely.

 

As the world moves forward in an effort to regain its health, independence and financial stability, keeping businesses, schools, sports and public spaces open, safe and sanitized are paramount for success.  

 

There are currently no complete solutions being deployed in any of the above-mentioned spaces that provide an acceptable level of individual, space, and air disinfection. 

 

Without a real solution, employers, employees, students, teachers, athletes, and the general public will continue to be at risk outside of their homes.

 

Should this recent pandemic become a bigger issue again or a new pathogen arrives on the scene, we risk another shutdown, along with further and possibly irreparable damage to our society, economy, and way of life. 

 

UVx is not just effective on viruses and bacteria. With more than 25% of the buildings in the United States estimated to have water damage, UVx becomes a powerful weapon for destroying fungi, bacteria, mycobacteria, and actinomycetes.

 

Currently, we are presented with subpar solutions that include: 

 

Hand Washing - not bad but it's only effective when done properly and for the right amount of time. Once you are complete, you risk reinfection the moment you touch a surface. 

Hand Sanitizer - also useful but it must be applied on a regular basis. Hand sanitizer is expensive and can be highly toxic. 

Social Distancing - good in theory but impractical in a real working environment.

Masks - mixed opinions on their effectiveness and they only work when worn correctly. 

UV Light - current UV light products are questionable in effectiveness and safety. Many use mercury-based light, which is not acceptable for use around humans. Exposure time for the majority of products on the market is long, making them unsafe for direct use by humans.  

 

Cost and Supply for UV Light

The current cost of UV light solutions is extremely high creating a significant barrier for most companies. Additionally, due to the unprecedented demand for UV light products, the industry as a whole is struggling to keep up with orders.  

 

Solution

UV ONE Hygienics, born out of the current health crisis, has engineered the world's first UV Light technology, UVx, which safely increases the strength of all known UV wavelengths. 

 

With the ever-increasing need for safety in the workplace and public spaces, UV ONE Hygienics leads the way with a powerful, scientifically proven, sterilization solution. 

 

Our UV Sanitation systems are long-lasting and are completely touchless, using lab-tested bulbs that last up to 10,000 hours and kill up to 99.999% of bacteria and COVID strain viruses (eg. COVID 19).

 

UV ONE Hygienics offers Customized Integration for all industries to meet the current and future need for UV sanitization. 

 

UV ONE Hygienics is excited to have the UVx technology developed and ready to be used in our commercial UV Light products, as well as in existing product lines.  

 

UVx is a powerful technology that increases the effectiveness of all known UV Light waves known to science. It not only boosts the effectiveness, killing 99.9999% of pathogens, but it also increases the speed of the decontamination cycle and decreases the time needed to destroy pathogens down to less than 2 seconds.

 

Because we understand the necessity of having a multifaceted approach, UV ONE Hygienics has developed a complete commercial solution that treats the air, interior spaces, and the individual. After all, what good does it do if you sanitize your hands only to touch an item that has not been sanitized?

 

We have developed a complete solution for businesses and public spaces which include:

UVx HVAC system that sterilizes pathogens being recycled through the air system.

We know from medical and scientific professionals that pathogens are easily spread through air systems*. UVx HVAC works to keep the air system of any space clean and safe not just from bacteria and viruses but mold and other mycotoxins.

UVx MultiMax, a customized full-spectrum ceiling light installation for any space.

Because the MultiMax light units use UVx, they can safely be used at any time, with or without people in the area.  

UVx Wand, a personal mobile unit for employees and individuals.

The wand completes our solution. Its small size can be placed on a stand on top of a desk or removed and carried around the workspace to ensure employees are always in control of their safety.  

 

Proprietary Technology

Our proprietary UVx Technology, significantly reduces the exposure time needed to kill harmful pathogens as compared to other UV light-based products. The reduced exposure ensures a skin-safe solution that is suitable for use in every conceivable commercial and public environment.

 

Automated Manufacturing and Cost Reduction

UV ONE Hygienics' parent company, Diamond Sun Labs, will be rolling out a revolutionary new automation technology to all areas of manufacturing, starting first with UV ONE Hygienics.

 

 

This exciting technology will allow our UVx products to be manufactured at less than 50% of the current cost while significantly increasing the manufacturing speed of our products.

 

 

Achievement & Traction

UV ONE Hygienics has received a great deal of attention in just six months of operations. Large corporations such as Boeing and Intel have shown interest in our complete solutions and how they might help bring their employees back to work safely.  

 

We are actively working on our first large proposal for a complete commercial solution for Tyndale, a large supplier of fire-resistant clothing. Tyndale consists of over 200,000 sq. ft. of warehouse space, headquarters, two distribution centers, four retail stores, six manufacturing facilities, and traveling field sales representatives. 

 

From a manufacturing standpoint, UV ONE Hygienics is in discussions with Amphenol, one of the world's largest manufacturers of interconnect products and who will be our manufacturing partner. Our goal is to keep our manufacturing in North America and Amphenol will allow us to accomplish this.  

 

Additionally, we have begun informal discussions with a Fortune 500 company that has expressed interest in a possible acquisition of UV ONE Hygienics. Exciting opportunities ahead!  

 

UV ONE Hygienics is currently working on a $10 million commitment for an initial manufacturing run from a large medical equipment group based in New York.

 

Market

In 2018, the global UV disinfection equipment market was expected to grow to a $1.3 billion-dollar industry, this was pre-COVID-19.  

 

The global UV disinfection equipment market size is projected to grow from $2.9 billion (US) in 2020 to $5.5 billion by 2025; it is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12.3% from 2020 to 2025. Key factors fueling market growth include increasing demand for UV disinfection equipment due to threats of infectious diseases, and long life and lower power consumption of LED-based UV disinfection equipment.
