LONDON, Ont. – May 1, 2009 – After an unusually long winter, everyone is looking forward to longer summer days. With more people enjoying the warm weather, especially children playing outdoors into the evenings, there is an increased need for road safety. Hazed or cloudy plastic headlights can reduce visibility when driving making it very difficult to see, especially at night and during inclement summer weather, like thunderstorms and fog.
Now, drivers can restore plastic headlight lenses to like-new clarity with the new 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System, an easy-to-use solution for removing the yellowing and hazing that reduces headlight performance and visibility.
While plastic headlights help reduce vehicle weight and withstand impact, oxidation and sunlight can dull the surface, turn it yellow or leave it cloudy and scratched. This means the light from the headlights is diffused and not focused correctly on the roadway, which limits visibility especially at night. Not only can the driver of the vehicle not see the roadway as clearly, the vehicle is also less visible to other cars.
With the average age of vehicles on Canadian streets today nearing eight years, the safety problem is growing.
3M, trusted leader in automotive products, has a new solution in its 3M Car Care line that allows car owners to quickly and cost-effectively eliminate this problem. The new 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System includes everything the consumer needs to remove the oxidation and restore the headlight lens to its clear condition. It is also cost effective. Compared to having the lens commercially repaired for approximately $75 or replaced for up to $1,500, the 3M Headlight Lens Restoration System costs less than $30. The
