Let us quickly outline the science behind UV films just in time for the hot, sun-filled summer months. Spend a few minutes with us right now so you can better protect; you, your loved ones and your belongings! Why? Because now is the time and later is to late! Window film has never been marketed strongly as a protection against skin cancer, anti-aging and other health issues related to sun exposure but it is the perfect solution.
Let’s break it down.
What is UV?There are three types of UV: UVA, UVB and UVC. The sun sends out invisible ultraviolet (UV) rays that are harmful to people, as well as automotive and building interiors.
§ UVA: Approximately 95% of the ultraviolet radiation that reaches the Earth’s surface is UVA. It is the dominant tanning ray, and whether exposed to outdoors or in a salon, UVA causes cumulative damage over time. It has long been known to play a major part in skin aging and wrinkling and fading
§ UVB: The chief cause of skin reddening and sunburn which could lead to skin damage, eye damage, cancer and fading
§ UVC: The highest-energy and most dangerous type of ultraviolet light, UVC is filtered by the earth’s atmosphere and ozone layer, so let’s not worry about this one.
Shedding a little light on the subject; Window film blocks nearly 100% of all UVA and UVB rays from passing through glass. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends a sunscreen with an SPF of 15 or higher. The problem with that is the SPF on the majority of sunscreens sold in the United States only indicates the amount of UVA protection, leaving the customer guessing at how much UVB light is damaging their skin. That is why The Skin Cancer Foundation speaks positively about the coverage window film provides in addition to sunscreen.
Because window film blocks over 99% of all ultraviolet radiation, it has an extremely high SPF that will blow commercial sunscreen lotions, out of the water: from a minimum of SPF 250 to SPF ratings in the thousands. Most people are familiar with the SPF value of applied sunscreen so this number is sure to impress you! Applying a solar control film to the windows of ones Car, Home or Business is like shielding the interior, protecting the inhabitants and the objects within.
Most manufactures have many Professional grade films that carry The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation to assure customers of window film’s protective benefits.
