Faded Headlights Q & A
Many people notice the headlight lenses on their cars or trucks have clouded over the years, and we are often asked these questions:
Q: What causes the lenses to cloud over time—is it UV exposure, chemical exposure or something else? A: It is primarily UV exposure that degrades plastic lenses. New lenses have a coating that inhibits exposure, but over time, it wears off. Sand and road grime impact does not help either.
Q: Is there something I can do to prevent, reduce or mitigate the cause of the plastic getting cloudy? A: The best thing you can do for headlight lenses is to keep them clean and waxed to help protect them.
Q: Can the headlights be restored?
A: Yes! SuperGlass can restore the clear shine of your headlights. The SuperGlass Headlight Restoration system removes the opaque and yellowed surface of the poly-carbonate, and restores clarity of your headlights to like-new condition.
