Headlights make it possible for drivers to see other vehicles and for other drivers to identify a vehicle. They aid in night time driving, make it easier to see in foggy conditions, and generally improve safety while driving. The problem is that many headlights experience problems as they age. This may reduce the light that headlights produce by as much as 70 percent, which in turn greatly reduces the benefits of headlights. Headlight restoration is one of the more economic ways to combat discolored, dull or damaged headlights. This process can help improve your safety while driving and make your car look more aesthetically pleasing.
What Causes Headlights to Fade?
There are many reasons that headlights fade, but the most common reason resides with exposure to UV radiation. The polymers of the headlight lenses change to a clouded stat that reduces the amount of light that passes through them.
Even bright LED lights may have a difficult time producing enough light to see at night or during rain, sleet or snow. Dirt, deformations caused by impacts, oxidation and warping of the lenses can result in headlights fading. These symptoms tend to worsen over time as the causes accumulate.
