This wave is in the electromagnetic signal range with a shorter wavelength and higher energy than the visible light found in sunlight, and comprises about 10% of all that comes from the Sun’s surface.
Due to the use of the environment and the destruction of the ozone layer, the amount of UV rays passing through the earth’s atmosphere has increased and more damage is caused to different surfaces in urban life, such as external buildings that are made of different materials such as metals, ceramics, wood or polymer Comes with This destruction occurs in the form of decay, discoloration or yellowing in the facade of the building or any other part exposed to UV radiation.
