he majority of headlights manufactured today are made of polycarbonate, strong thermoplastic. Manufacturing polycarbonate headlights over traditional glass headlights has allowed car manufacturers to create headlights in all kinds of cool shapes and sizes, but there is one drawback: oxidation. Oxidation is one of the major causes of yellowing in headlights. Many factors can cause oxidation, including: excessive heat, pollution, harsh detergents, ultraviolet exposure from the sun, chemicals, etc. Over time all polycarbonate headlights will become oxidized and need to be replaced or restored. Oxidation creates limited visibility for drivers and safety becomes an issue; this is where headlight restoration comes in.
Headlight restoration is a process used to remove oxidation from headlights and to preserve the lenses by re-applying a protective UV-resistant coating. There are many benefits to headlight restoration and in this article we will be listing a few of them.
First is the benefit of safety. Vehicles are made with headlights for a reason, and when visibility is limited it can be very dangerous for the operator of the vehicle, pedestrians, cyclists, and other drivers on the road. Headlight restoration makes the road safer for everyone.
