Longwave ultraviolet (UV) substances will fluoresce in the range of 365nm - 380nm.
Some longwave UV substances will fluoresce as well in short wavelengths as low as 250nm (e.g UVXPBR) and and high as 400nm (e.g UVXPBB, UVPA, UVPW).
As a general rule of thumb, if the UV substance is soluble, then the substance will degrade under sunlight after a week or so.
