|Window film helps battle ultraviolet rays
(NAPSI)—Many drivers have found a clear way to protect themselves, their passengers and their wallets with the help of a film they can hardly see.
“People don’t realize their skin is getting damaged from sitting near glass windows in cars,” explains Dr. Dee Anna Glaser, vice-chair of the Dermatology Department at St. Louis University. “Damage from certain kinds of ultraviolet rays is cumulative. These ultraviolet rays penetrate deep into the skin and can silently accelerate the aging process, cause wrinkles and even skin cancer.”
Adds the Skin Cancer Foundation, drivers are especially vulnerable on the left side.
Fortunately, drivers can apply a clear or tinted window film over the vehicle’s windows for virtually invisible protection that blocks up to 99 percent of ultraviolet rays.
In addition, by reducing the interior temperature of the car, the window film can reduce the need to run the air-conditioning and so burn less fuel, saving money and the environment. Window film can reduce a car’s interior temperature by as much as 30 degrees.
