FEATURES AND BENEFITS

Why is it important to use a UV-filtering material?
Fabrics and paper become brittle, fade in color, or turn yellow when exposed to sunlight. A good example are street maps or magazines left in a car below the rear window. Printed paper articles left there often change noticeably within a few weeks. Those changes are mainly due to exposure to the UV-light in solar radiation
Where is UV-light present?
UV-light is naturally present in sunlight. Approximately 6% of the total irradiated solar energy is in the UV range between 320 and 380 nm. But UV-light can also be present in artificial light. Specifically, halogen lamps emit a considerable amount of UV-light, and even common fluorescent lamps emit light in the UV range.
