THE SKIN CANCER FOUNDATION

XPEL is a proud member of The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Corporate Council. Established in 1979, the Foundation is the only global organization solely devoted to the prevention, early detection and treatment of skin cancer. Their goal is to decrease the incidence of skin cancer through public and professional education and research. XPEL fully supports the mission of the Foundation and their efforts to save and improve lives. That’s why our window films for automotive glass and commercial and residential flat glass all offer protection against the damaging effects of UVA and UVB radiation.
