Amber 81 Architectural
Window Film

Amber 81

Product Details

Amber 81 is a spectrally selective architectural film designed to block UV light into the low visible light range up to 500nm, filtering out dangerous wavelengths while letting safe visible light pass through.

Ideal for use in environments such as:

  • clean rooms
  • hospital operating rooms
  • any facility that requires extreme UV light blockage

The film is also commonly used to assist individuals with extreme sunlight sensitivity such as xeroderma pigmentosum (XP).

Amber 81 provides excellent blocking throughout the 400nm range, with transmission below 10% all the way up to around 500nm. In situations where this type of extreme UV light blocking is required, the film is applied to all sources of light within the room such as windows, fluorescent lighting, and even lasers. The amber color of the film is what gives it this extra blocking capability.

Amber 81 utilizes a pressure sensitive adhesive.
