HLR Headlamp Lens Restorer: Product #4030 

Today's headlights are manufactured of polycarbonate plastic for strength and the ability to conform to the front-end styling of a vehicle. Although polycarbonate is a very hard porous plastic, the intense sun and heat, road chemicals, humidity, insects, bird droppings, and acid rain, com­bined with the heat of the halogen bulb will, in as little as one year, damage the protective hard coat to the point that an ugly, discolored, cloudy, hazy appearance develops on the lenses. This damage will re­strict the headlights' ability to project its beam of light at night and dur­ing adverse weather conditions by as much as 90%.
