What is LenszSaver

History

For 25 years, the LenzSaver™ process thrived in the aircraft industry as a reliable method for removing scratches from airplane windows.

Automotive headlight lenses are made of a similar plastic, a stretched and formed acrylic. When the lens was manufactured, it was coated with a UV protectant and then baked and slow cooled. As the plastic was heated, the coating embedded in the substrate levels of the plastic. The protectant degrades over time and the lens becomes more susceptible to the damaging effects of pollution and the environment.

The patented BG LenzSaver™ process restores the lens and applies a UV Protectant. At the end of the service when the hair dryer heats the lens, the plastic expands, drawing the UV Protectant deeper into the substrate levels for ultimate lens protection.

It’s science.

The BG LenzSaver™ polishes are blended in a vacuum-emulsifying machine. Under nitrogen, the particles bond in such a way that they create a homogenous product. The product is sustained in this environment and stored in a foil packet until the packet is opened exposing the mixture to oxygen for the first time. The oxygen activates the polish and then it’s ready to use.

Description:

Polishing compositions and methods for removing scratches and other imperfections from a variety of plastic surfaces in order to improve the clarity and optical quality. The polishing compositions are applied by means of pads made from a variety of materials.

What is crazing?

crazingCrazing is a series of fine cracks on the surface of a material, for example in the UV protectant layer. Crazing can weaken the material and the slightest amount of tension, such as a rock hitting the surface, will cause noticeable fractures.

Less luminosity is difficult to detect

Yellowed lenses may only be shining at an unsafe 50 percent efficiency or less. Reaction times of the driver are affected by how much and how clearly they can see hazards around them. Yet this drop in luminosity happens gradually as the headlight ages, so car owners may not even notice the change.

Clear. But for how long?

The BG LenzSaver™ UV Protectant will last at least as long as the original finish, but it depends on the lenses’ exposure to pollution and the environment, etc.

The proof is clear.
