To achieve this result we tested dozens of products and only the projection of acetonne vapor proved effective, with a stunning result.

Why Does Acetone Vapor Restore Shine to Your Headlight Lenses?

The main reason why acetone vapor is so effective in restoring clarity to headlight lenses is because of its dissolving power.

Over time, headlight optics can be affected by exposure to outdoor elements, UV rays, dirt and road debris, which creates a layer of tarnishing and scratches on the surface of the plexiglass.

Acetone is a powerful solvent that can dissolve and smooth the outer plexiglass layer of your headlights, leaving the surface of the headlight lenses clean and clear.

Renovation Steps with the GlassReborn Kit

Here is a step-by-step guide to renovating your headlight optics at home.

Step 1: Preparation

  • Make sure your vehicle is parked in a well-ventilated area or outside in calm weather.
  • Clean the surface of the headlight lenses thoroughly to remove any dirt or dust.

Step 2: Sanding

  • Sand the surface of your optics with water and the sandpaper provided and gradually go from 180 grit to 1200 grit.

Step 3: Preparing the Warming Cup

  • Fill the warming cup of the GlassReborn kit with acetone.
  • Plug in the cup and after 2 minutes spray the product on the optics.

Step 4: Final Cleaning

  • After using the steam, clean the surface of the headlight optics with a soft, clean cloth.

Why is it important to maintain your headlight lenses?

  1. Compliance with technical inspection : In fact, technicians can refuse to pass your vehicle for technical inspection if the headlights do not transmit the minimum number of Lumens because of their opacity.

  2. Road safety: And yes, the light rays can be obstructed up to 40% of their original power with yellowed and dull optics, having translucent lights can save you from an accident.

  3. Longevity of your bulbs : the plastics of your dull headlights do not allow light rays to pass through and store heat inside the optical unit; the bulbs risk burning out more quickly if they are exposed to high temperatures.

  4. Visual comfort : Fatigue while driving is a recurring symptom among motorists; having good visibility and therefore high-performance headlights can drastically reduce your risk of fatigue when driving, especially at night.

To conclude :

Treating your lenses with acetone is a great technique used by professionals around the world and it would be a shame to deprive yourself of this effective process.
