Solar Gard® Launches New Window Film That Delivers Vital UV Protection to Drivers Around the World

Solar Gard UltragardTM UV Window Film Provides Superior Visibility While Protecting Drivers and Passengers from Harmful UV Rays Solar Gard®, an industry-leading manufacturer of architectural and automotive window films, today announced its launch of a clear UV-protectant window film for vehicles.

Solar Gard UltragardTM UV window film protects drivers and passengers from harmful sun exposure without altering driving visibility or the appearance of the vehicle's exterior. Recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation, Solar Gard Ultragard UV window film blocks 99 percent of damaging UV-A and UV-B rays, which are the leading causes of skin cancer, melanoma and premature aging of the skin.


Solar Gard Ultragard UV is the newest addition to Solar Gard's comprehensive line of automotive window films that offer protection from dangerous UV rays. Ultragard UV provides the regular benefits of window film with the added benefit of being clear, allowing customers to preserve the original look of their vehicle and meet state tint laws that otherwise exclude films with color or tint.


Globally, the majority of drivers and passengers are not aware that vehicle windows offer very minimal UV-A protection, and even more importantly, that they are at high risk for dangerous UV exposure while on the road. With over 66,000 deaths occurring annually worldwide from melanoma and other skin cancers1, there is a vital need in the marketplace for an automotive product that helps protect drivers and passengers from the damaging effects of the sun. Window film is an easily installed, effective solution available worldwide. Requiring only a one-time professional application, Solar Gard Ultragard UV offers consumers an affordable choice for year-round sun protection. Benefits of Ultragard UV window film include:

 •Blocks 99% of both UV-A and UV-B rays year-round

 •Protects electronics, upholstery and interior of vehicle from fading and discoloration

 •Helps hold glass together in case of breakage

 •Offers a cost effective solution with an industry leading warranty

•Signal-friendly with satellite radio, GPS, cellular and tire monitoring systems

"At Solar Gard, we are committed to creating smart solutions that address critical issues that our customers face every day," said Kathryn Giblin, Director of Global Marketing and Technical Services, Solar Gard. "With skin cancer continuing to be a grave health concern, we are proud to offer Solar Gard's Ultragard UV window film as yet another option for protection from the sun's damaging UV rays."
