We receive a great amount of sunlight in our daily lives. On the other hand, overexposure to sunlight poses the risk of skin aging (photoaging) and skin cancer due to the effects of ultraviolet rays contained in sunlight.
Ultraviolet rays can be divided into three types according to their wavelengths: UV-A, UV-B, and UV-C. UV-C (200-280nm), the most harmful type of ultraviolet radiation, is mostly absorbed by the ozone layer and does not reach the surface of the earth; UV-B (280-315nm) reaches only the outer layer of the skin, but can cause dermatitis, freckles, and dry skin; the ozone layer hardly absorbs UV-A (314-400nm) and reaches the earth’s surface even on cloudy days. UV-A can penetrate deeper layers of the skin (dermis) and can cause long-term skin damage to the human body. In addition, UV-A light can damage and age objects.
Laminated glass with a standard PVB interlayer film does not cut off all UV-A, allowing it to enter the interior of the vehicle.
S-LEC™ Premium UV Blocking Film UA01 has the world’s highest level of UV-A blocking performance as an interlayer film for architectural laminated glass, blocking more than 99.9%*1 of UV-A, preventing light radiation from entering the interior of vehicles.
*1 ISO13837 standard, please contact us for detailed data.
Protection of people
Since UV-A reaches deeper into the skin, prolonged and large amounts of exposure can damage the skin, causing inflammation and premature aging.
S-LEC™ Premium UV Blocking Film UA01, when installed on windows, blocks UV from entering the car and protects the skin of those who need UV protection from photoaging and prevents premature aging such as spots and sagging skin.
Protection of objects
When exposed to UV rays from outside, the vehicle’s interior components, such as the car seats and dashboard, are subject to degradation and discoloration caused by sun bleaching. This spoils their value. The laminated glass that uses S-LEC™ Premium UV Blocking Film UA01 substantially cuts out the UV-A rays, thus preserving the interior.
We offer the following combinations of multiple functions into one film:
S-LEC™ Sound Acoustic Film reduces the transmission of exterior noises for the highest level of luxury and comfort on the market.
Laminated glass with S-LEC™ Solar Control Film protects skin from the burning sensation associated with infrared.
