Sterilization of tools in beauty parlors and spas is either via high temperature steam or UV Sterilizer. The autoclave sterilizer is a high pressure steam based sterilizer, wherein saturated steam at 250 ° -266 °F for about 15–20 minutes sanitizes the tools. The extreme temperature disinfects and sanitizes salon and spa hand tools.
UV sterilizers use a UV light bulb instead of heat or steam. 15 minutes in UV sterilizers can kill over 95% bacteria. This product is suitable for hair/beauty instruments & small articles; such as glasses, metal vessels, plastic instruments, etc. It is also used for storage of articles which have been disinfected.
