Firstly, IDK if there is an official thread here on retrobrighting techniques, but I believe UV light alone has been shown to work, as has ozone without the need to buy expensive peroxide or chemicals.
I was thinking I should try taking it one step further and use a high energy UV-C tube.
Please note these lights are dangerous to look at or expose your skin to when running, so caution is needed, but is easy to mitigate, by using inside a closed box, even a cardboard box would work fine, but even better would be to design a wooden box out of plywood with a switch on the lid that turns the bulb off if opened.
The beauty with UV-C is that it produces copious amounts of ozone gas when turned on, more so than a regular Ozone generator that requires a plastic bag to be well sealed.
Im going to experiment with an old EPROM eraser and see if i get any results.
Im hoping this will not only work quicker than other methods, but give a more even result, especially if the ozone has the better effect over the UV light itself, but with both combined, it may work well
Any other suggestions? Im interested if anyone else has tried this.
I dont have many items that need retrobrighting, but am keen to give it a go.
Edit - ive got a couple of yellow keys in my EPROM eraser right now, I will leave them in for 2-3 hours and get back on the results.
