What are the causes of premature fading in furnitures, floorings and other precious and expensive items. As you can see by the above chart it is a combination of a few things;
- 40% of fading is caused by UV Light (invisible)
- 25% of fading is caused by Visible Light (the light we see)
- 25 % of fading is caused by Heat (noticed how the back of your couch is hot as the Sun shines upon it)
- 10% misc. – poor dye anchorage, chemicals, fabric quality etc…
We must make this disclaimer that Nothing completely stops fading. But window films are designed to drastically reduce the major causes of fading: Damaging UV radiation, excessive light and heat. All these factors as mentioned contribute to fading and premature aging of fabrics, furnishings and flooring.
