Fading is a result of three sunlight factors and, to a lesser degree indoor artificial lighting, humidity, and poor dye anchorage play a role as well.
- Fade Control is one of the foremost problems we are called upon daily. Whether itβs a retail store, a commercial building, or a home, fading is an ongoing problem.Β What causes fading? A combination of visible light, ultraviolet light, heat, and miscellaneous factors (such as indoor artificial lighting, humidity, poor dye anchorage). We can reduce the effects of fading with the installation of solar control window film, which helps to reduce the fading of carpets, clothing, furnishings, etc.
To understand the causes of fading, one needs to know a little about the makeup of sunlight.
Sunlight is basically made up of three elements.
Visible light β the part which enables us to see.
Infrared light β the part which we feel as heat.
Ultraviolet light β we cannot feel it or see it, but it is the main factor in causing fabrics, furniture and works of art to fade
Call us if:
