AGC Earns the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation for Automotive Windows in All Directions
AGC, a world-leading manufacturer of glass, chemicals and high-tech materials, has earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation, an international symbol of safe and effective sun protection, for UV Verre Premium Privashield.This newly released product is a dark-tinted privacy glass for automotive rear doors and rear windows that cuts ultraviolet (UV) rays by about 99%. In combination with the UV-cut glass for front windshields and front door windows for which the company has already earned the Seal of Recommendation, AGC has become the first company in the world to offer automotive windows for all directions (i.e. front, side and rear) bearing The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation.
The Skin Cancer Foundation is the only international organization solely devoted to the prevention, early detection and treatment of the world’s most common cancer. For protecting people from UV rays which are said to be one of the causes of skin cancer, AGC launched sales of its UV Verre Premium series in 2010, the world’s first front door glass with an approximately 99% UV reduction performance. In 2013, AGC earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation for the UV Verre Premium series and LAMISAFE front windshield, and these products are being used as anti-UV measures for driver and front passenger seats in about 50 automobile models across the world.
