New partnership furthers the Foundation’s mission to save and improve lives
TAMPA BAY, FL – May 5, 2020 – Madico Inc, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of materials-based film solutions, has been awarded the Seal of Recommendation by The Skin Cancer Foundation for its automotive, architectural and safety and security window films, which block 99% or more of UVA and UVB radiation.
The Skin Cancer Foundation has set the standard for educating the public and the medical community about skin cancer, its prevention by means of sun protection, the need for early detection and prompt, effective treatment. Madico is proud to have its solar control window films recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as part of a complete skin cancer prevention strategy.
Madico solar control window films offer a wealth of benefits to individuals driving or riding in a car, relaxing at home or working in an office. Besides providing cooler comfortable interiors and reducing glare, most importantly Madico’s window films block 99% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays offering necessary skin protection. According to Ketchum’s Daily Ride index, Americans spend an average of 10 hours and 50 minutes per week in their cars, almost 24 days per year. The protection from the sun that Madico’s window film provides when installed on vehicles is recommended by The Skin Cancer Foundation as part of a comprehensive sun protection program.
Indoor skin protection is an important, yet often overlooked, safety measure for preventing skin cancer. The EPA estimates that Americans spend on average 90% of their time indoors. UVA rays can pass directly through unprotected windows causing the same type of skin damage experienced outdoors. Madico’s solar control window films block the sun’s UV rays, providing full coverage and acting as a sunscreen.
According to the Skin Cancer Foundation:
- Skin cancer is the most common cancer in the United States and worldwide.
- 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer by the age of 70.
- More than 2 people die of skin cancer in the U.S. every hour.
- An estimated 90 percent of skin aging is caused by the sun.
