India is a hot country with temperatures averaging 35 to 37 degrees and even crossing 45 degrees in some areas. It is no wonder then that car owners here desire attributes that ensure lesser heat inside the cabin. Apart from the thermal discomfort accentuated in tropical summers, the sunlight also transmits harmful UV radiation which is detrimental for our skin and the cause behind various skin-related disorders. Moreover, high temperatures also put a strain on the engine and battery and impede optimum functionality of the air conditioner.
In its penchant to offer better solutions for Indian conditions, AIS has worked extensively to develop a unique offering called Dark Green UV Cut glass. Apart from reducing the thermal load inside the cabin, it also eliminates the UV radiation by more than 80 percent. It perfectly complies with the Indian regulation for light transmission of 50 percent for side lights and provides a life-long solution, unlike sun-control films which have been banned for use in India.
Here are some product highlights –
1. The dark green glass combination is enabled to cut more than 82% UV rays entering the car, hence protecting people inside the car from a number of harmful skin diseases and ailments including sunburn, premature ageing of the skin, eye damage and skin cancer. Which is why, this glass is certified by Skin Care Foundation.
2. Unlike the normal green glass, this glass leads to a drop of close to 2 degrees in cabin temperature.
3. With its ability to curb down the heat accumulating inside the car, this UV protection glass can also reduce the usage of air-conditioning by 10-to-15%. This s decrease the load on the compressor and thereby the engine, which improves fuel efficiency and noticeably lowers your monthly fuel expenses. It helps in decreasing the carbon footprint as there are lesser carbon dioxide emissions.
4. Prolonged exposure to sunlight can tarnish the car’s upholstery besides other things of necessity in the car. With its ability to check the amount of heat getting into the interior of the vehicle, these glasses are better equipped to protect interiors of the car from repeated exposure to high temperatures.
Fully compliant with Indian rules regarding car glass, the Dark Green UV Cut glass is yet another product innovation by AIS that perfectly suits Indian climate.
