Reduce Fading with Anti Fade Window Film
Extended exposure to sunlight can have negative effects on carpets, upholstery and your personal belongings. Colours can become faded and dull, furniture and wood finishes can become damaged, and often the damage is too extensive to repair.
Fading is particularly a threat in retail establishments – where the need to keep contents in displays looking new and fresh is vital.
What causes fading?
Fading is caused by a number of factors, such as
- Ultraviolet Radiation (40%)
- Visible Light (25%)
- Heat (25%)
- Other (10%)
- Chemical Vapors
- Age of the Fabric
- Dye Fastness
- Wear and tear physically removing colouring agents from the materials surface.
