UV Protection and Fading


UV Protection and Fading
3M Sun Control Films help protect against harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation. While UV radiation only makes up
approximately 3% of solar energy, it contributes up to 40% of fading and is linked to premature ageing of skin and
melanoma, a deadly form of skin cancer.
Breakdown of UV Radiation:
• UV-C: 200-290 nm wavelength is blocked by the atmosphere.
• UV-B: 290-320 nm wavelength, intensity varies by time of day and is blocked by glass
• UV-A: 320-380 nm wavelength, always present and is blocked by 3M Window Film.
