Light Gard, a subsidiary of Solar Graphics, offers a very unique and effective spectral control window film for manipulating light transmissions in Vivariums. RC-3 (Rose-Chocolate) is applied on glass and clear polycarbonate materials to filter the UV blue-green light spectrum (300-580 um). This is an effective solution for the successful maintenance of night visual conditions needed in Vivariums. Usage for, but not limited to: windows, doors, isolation cages, cubicles,light fixtures, and bulb covers.
RC-3 is constructed of laminated dyed color polyester films designed for the control of specific spectral light and transmission levels and coated with three levels of UV inhibitors. RC-3 is then laminated with an acrylic adhesive for applications to glass and coated with scratch resistant surface. Wavelength readings are tested on the Filmstar Report Generator (Spectrogard Model 96). Scratch coating tests are per AMTM D1044 "Standard Test Method for Resistance of Transparent Plastics to Surface Abrasion". Field life is 25 to 35+ years for interior applications.
