Fading Protection Window Films


Fading is a complex issue because each and every material has a different propensity to degrade from exposure to ultra violet radiation and other contributary factors. For example, wood is extremely vulnerable to fading from sunlight (both visible and invisible light affect fading). Different types of hardwood floors have varying tolerance levels to fading from exposure to sunlight.

It is generally accepted that UV radiation can be responsible for roughly 40% of all fading, In addition to ultra violet radiation, other factors that cause fading include:-

  • Normal sunlight (heat) and indoor artificial lighting.
  • Humidity/Moisture
  • Poor dye fastness in the fabric/coating
  • Chemical vapours in the air

UV Rays & Skin Damage
Skin that is subject to continuous or extensive exposure to sunlight can develop premature aging as well as skin cancer.

Under the grouping of Ultra violet, there are three distinct rays, these are:-

  • UV-A - Rays which cause skin to tan
  • UV-B - Rays which cause skin to burn
  • UV-C - Rays which are absorbed by the ozone layer before reaching the earths surface

Clear UV protection window film is designed to block up to 99% of harmful UV radiation (UV types a & b) this is equivalent to SPF 285 while allowing visible light to pass through the window.
