415nm and trace UV

What is the UV risk in a 415nm lamp?

The SciART 415nm LED's will contain a trace amount of UV.... SciART will be placing a warning on their site saying that there is a trace of UV emitted by their 415nm lights for those people concerned with it.

so would this be anything to actually be concerned with? could you get a tan? a burn? etc? i'm guessing the answer would be no, but i would like to hear from the other people on this board

I shouldn't worry about it too much. If it generates a significant tan, then stop. Otherwise don't worry. The normal rule of thumb I use is that using the lamp for 15 minutes is equivalent to being outside in the sun for about 1 minute.
