What materials are used to make RealShield™?

LEXAN™ polycarbonate material is used to make the RealShield™. LEXAN™ is optically clear. PET, PETG, and APET are not as optically clear. None of these other materials are as optically clear.

After installed, can RealShield™ be readjusted on my hat or reinstalled on a different hat?

Yes. Watch the RealOptics instructional video. RealShield™ uses a 3M™ adhesive that holds tight and leaves no adhesive residue behind, plus it can be be removed and re-applied over 40 times.

Is it normal for the RealShield™ to look hazy?

That is likely due to the protective removable liner used in shipping. Once removed, by simply peeling off from the corner, your RealShield™ will be optically clear.

Use soap and water and a soft lint-free cloth, or lens cleaning wipes. Avoid paper towels as they may cause scratches.

The youth size fits youth size caps only and is recommended for children who wear a youth size hat and ages 3 to 10 years old.

Does the RealShield™ have SPF?

The RealShield™ cannot be used in place of sunscreen. While, LEXAN, the material used to produce RealShield™ does block some harmful UVA & UVB rays is not a replacement for sunscreen.

Will my RealShield™ fog over?

RealShield™ does not fog up because it is a non-restrictive face covering with a vent at the top under the brim of the hat and airflow from the sides. You can also adjust it away from your mouth and nose to create more ventilation. In cold air, you could notice some fogging but it will quickly dissipate.

Is the RealShield™ reusable or are they considered disposable?

Because we use premium 15 mil thick LEXAN, the RealShield™ is cleanable with alcohol wipes, Windex and a soft cloth or lens wipes for cleaning eye glasses. It can also be removed from a hat, cleaned and then reinstalled on another hat. So the answer to your question is that the RealShield™ is definitely reusable.
