Do these offer any UV protection?

I don't have idea, on FAQ page http://www.rcscreenprotectors.com/in...s/Page3792.htm you can find same info about effect of sun on the material (no effect), but not answer about your question.

Sorry all... I had intended to get to this sooner. I've been out of town for a few days.

The short answer is I don't know. No one has ever asked that before! I will call the engineers for our film producer and see if I can get an answer to this.

RainbowRising... Thank-you for your kind words. We work really hard to make sure modelers find something they like and can use and it makes our day when folks are pleased.

Shipping times are a mystery for me. Most overseas orders take about 1 to 2 weeks. Then some take 4 weeks to the same place.

Thanks again,

OldScaleGuy...

Hey sorry it took a while to get back to you on this. I had to call the film engineers. They in turn had to call some folks. The answer is that it does not offer UV protection. If it turns out that that is a quality we want, we may be able to have that incorporated into future production runs of the film stock.. Most LCD displays are pretty insensitive to UV and we don't tend to leave our transmitters in the sun like you might other devices. Can I ask why you ask?

I don't see why it is important, they don't come stock that way and if it was an issue I think that maybe they would. My tx is not out in the sun enough to worry about it.... just me.

I have been told for years by a friend of mine that the screens are sensative to UV. So, I have been very particular to protect the screen over the years. I would never leave one in the sun for long term but it would be great if the add on screen protector provided UV protection as well. Why not? Whether it is a serious issue or not, at the cost of today's high end radios we should do every thing possible to protect them. My opinion is that it would give you another selling/marketing feature especially if it does not drive cost up too much.

All excellent points. I think I might wait it out because in Denver the sun is brutal.
