How long does a headlight restoration take?
In most cases, a headlight restoration can be completed in one hour or less.

What causes headlights to deteriorate?
Most new headlights are made of polycarbonate rather than glass. While there are advantages of using polycarbonate, there is also one major drawback. Over time pollution, humidity, acid rain, cleaning chemicals, salt, road debris and sunlight all contribute to the oxidation of the protective coating placed on the lens by the manufacturer. In extreme cases, the oxidation will completely deteriorate the original protective coating and damage the surface of the lens itself.
