UV Safety Awareness Month
Summer is here and July is UV Safety Awareness Month. UV protection is a must for your eyes, skin and vehicle because the sun emits radiation known as UV-A and UV-B rays.
- UV-B rays have short wavelengths that reach the outer layer of your skin
- UV-A rays have longer wavelengths that can penetrate the middle layer of your skin
By learning the risks associated with too much sun exposure and taking the right precautions to protect you and your family from UV rays, everyone can enjoy the sun and outdoors safely.
Here are the harmful things unprotected sun exposure can do:
- Cause vision problems and damage to your eyes
- Suppression of the immune system
- Premature aging of the skin
- Skin cancer
July is UV Safety Awareness Month. When it comes to your vehicle, using window tint helps keep out the UV rays. Our team uses only XPEL window film to help protect from the harmful rays. In addition, the XPEL brand is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Here are a few features direct from the XPEL website to highlight the film’s protection:
Ceramic Particle Technology
Contains a proprietary blend of ceramic particles to act as a solid barrier to infrared heat while maintaining the ease of install in a 1.5 mil construction.
Superior Heat Rejection
Our multilayer nano-ceramic particle technology blocks up to 98% of the infrared heat.
UV Ray Protection
PRIME XR PLUS provides SPF 1,000 protection that effectively blocks over 99% of harmful UV rays that can lead to numerous skin cancers, premature aging and skin cell damage.
In the past, keeping cool meant choosing a darker shade of tint. The multi-layer nano construction in PRIME XR PLUS provides ultra-high performance without reducing outbound visibility.
Crystal Clear Signal
In a digital world, clear communication is key. PRIME XR PLUS construction will not interfere with radio, cellular, or Bluetooth signals.
