you mean your not going to get 199.8% UV protection? :beer:dunno

Well my film can block that much. :DD

The way I understand it is that it is a technicality because it is arguable as to where exactly the UV spectrum ends and the visible light starts. Eventually you get a longer wavelength somewhere on the border that does not get filtered out. Then there is the portion of UV that gets absorbed and transmitted as heat... how do you say that you have 0% transmission when that happens? :lol

We are doing a home where lives a little girl with a rare form of a skin condition that can rapidly turn cancerous when exposed to UV rays. We already put on Vista V14 Ultima + LLulu AU75 on her parents house, now her granparents want to put 2 layers of AU75 on. I was just wondering if any one out there has run in to this kind of thing before. Thanks

Is it just the UV or is it visible light that affects her condition as well? They should have a high quality UV meter (better than what we use) that you could use to test the setup. :dunno

There are several window film dealers that have donated film and labor throughout the years; typically supported by their manufacturers.
