Why Do Car Headlights Get "Yellow?

The yellowing effect we sometimes see on car headlights is due to a lack of using a headlight protective sealant, coating, or wax which leaves the headlights more susceptible to exposure from UV light that breaks down and deteriorates the headlights outer plastic and/or clear coat layer causing it to haze and yellow.

Additionally, the lack of using a form of car headlight cleaner and a process to polish car headlight lenses periodically to remove environment contamination and restore clarity, are all contributing factors that accelerate the yellowing effect of car headlights. The best way to polish car headlights is to do it lightly and periodically as is the case with providing the best headlight protection which should be applied routinely depending on how much UV light your car is subjected to.

 

Headlight Restoration, How’s it done?

Once headlights have yellowed, they will need a headlight restoration process which can require several steps such as a car headlight plastic cleaner or detergent, automotive clay, certain sandpaper grits, a headlight polish, and a final headlight cleaner and sealant. 

In many cases, most of these individual products can be found in headlight restoration kits that can make it more convenient by containing most of what you’ll need for car headlight restoration in a kit.  However, as the ease or difficulty in removing the yellowing effect and restoring clarity to headlights can vary tremendously from one set of headlights to another, it’s usually best to just start with lighter sanding or even just a car headlight polish, as in certain situations sanding is not always necessary.

  • Restores the factory look of headlights
  • Help prevent yellowing of plastic headlights
  • Restore clarity by removing scratches and haze from soft plastics

 

Ensuring your car’s headlights are free from yellowing, haze, and oxidation isn’t just about looks, it’s also about safely ensuring that your headlights can effectively illuminate the road ahead at night.
