According to the American Academy of Dermatology, there is a direct link between more time spent driving an automobile and a higher incidence of left-sided skin cancers. Although all types of skin cancer increase with exposure to unprotected skin, particularly common among drivers is a form of melanoma that is caused by cumulative sun exposure rather than the more common form of melanoma that occurs from intense, intermittent sun exposure.

Built to last with many films featuring a limited lifetime warranty, all Solar Gard films come in a wide variety of colors and tints to compliment any car or truck exterior. The darker you go, the more privacy you will have
