The ultimate solution to dull, clouded plastic headlight lenses.
The Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit contains three products that are proven to clarify OEM polycarbonate lens covers, acrylic, Plexiglas, and other hard, unpainted plastics. Our trials have shown that the Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit increases the amount of light reaching the road by up to 80%. Scratches are reduced by as much as 60%. But the impact on your driving safety is immeasurable!
Today’s headlight lens covers are made of polycarbonate, a hard, impact-resistant plastic. While polycarbonate is more resilient than the glass lenses of several years ago, it can dull and yellow in a matter of 1-3 years. Most Americans own their vehicles for an average of five years. The average driver spends two years on the road with ineffective headlights!
Dull, ineffective headlight lenses are a bigger safety risk than you might think. Clouded lenses can reduce the amount of light illuminating the road by as much as 90%. The oxidized plastic refracts the light that is passing through the lens cover, creating a glare that is distracting to other drivers. Your vehicle’s headlights should light the road at least 150 feet in front of you. If they do not, you do not have enough advance visual warning to avoid a potentially dangerous and expensive accident.
The Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit includes:
Clear Plastic Enhancer
Diamondite Clear Plastic Enhancer is step one in the Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit. This cleaner/polish removes fine scratches and haze from clouded plastic headlight lenses and other hard plastic surfaces. Specially milled diminishing abrasives combined with lubricants and cleaners all work to smooth and clarify cloudy lenses. Clear Plastic Enhancer lifts dirt and oils out of hairline scratches as the abrasives level the edges to reduce their appearance. Like a premium car polish, Clear Plastic Enhancer cleans and smoothes headlight lenses and leaves a clear, shiny surface.
Clear Plastic Restorer
Diamondite Clear Plastic Restorer is the second step in the Diamondite Clear Plastic Kit. This is a very fine grade finishing glaze that restores the shine and optical clarity to polished headlight lens covers and other hard plastics. While Diamondite Clear Plastic Enhancer is the heavy-hitter, Diamondite Clear Plastic Restorer is the gentle finishing touch that finesses the plastic back to its factory-new appearance.
Clear Plastic Liquid Armor
Diamondite Clear Plastic Liquid Armor protects the newly restored headlight lens from future oxidation and UV damage with durable polymers. Polymers fill in the microscopic grooves and pores of the plastic to completely block out moisture, dirt, and UV radiation. Clear Plastic Liquid Armor contains the strongest UV shield available in a plastic protectant. This water-based formula will not dry out plastic surfaces, and it leaves a clear, protective gloss that lasts for months.
Before you begin…
Tape off the area surrounding the headlights using painter’s tape. Clean off any loose debris using Diamondite Perfect Vision Glass Cleaner and a soft microfiber towel. Screw the drill adapter into the included backing plate and tighten with a wrench. Insert the adapter into your electric drill and tighten the chuck.
Step 1 – Clear Plastic Enhancer
Press the included yellow cutting pad onto the backing plate. Apply Diamondite Clear Plastic Enhancer™ in an X pattern across the pad. If you are using a drill or rotary polisher, set the maximum speed at 1800 RPM. Work in an overlapping motion until cleaner breaks down into a clear film. Work up and down and side to side. There is no need to apply pressure to the machine. Use the included soft microfiber towel to remove residue. Severely stained or scratched lenses may require a second treatment.
Step 2 – Clear Plastic Restorer
Remove the yellow cutting pad and attach the included orange light cutting pad. Dispense Clear Plastic Restorer in an X pattern across the orange pad. Work at a speed of 1800 RPM on your electric drill. Move the pad up and down and side to side for complete coverage. When the polish starts to dry, turn off the drill and slowly lift it off the headlight lens cover. Wipe the headlight clean with the included microfiber towel. Repeat step 2 if necessary.
Step 3 – Clear Plastic Liquid Armor
Mist the headlight lens with Clear Plastic Liquid Armor. Two or three pumps should be enough to cover the lens. Use a microfiber towel to spread the sealant over the lens and flip the towel to buff dry. Allow the sealant to cure for an hour and then apply another coat if desired.

No problems at all. A little more expensive compared to competitor products but had no issues getting clear headlights. It works!

Great for removing yellowing / haze
September 26, 2012
I had noticed some hazing / yellowing on my headlights, so I ordered this kit hoping to take care of it. Some coworkers said they had tried similar products to no avail, but I went ahead and ordered. WOW. What a difference. The headlights are like brand new. I was so impressed I went over and did a friends van headlights as well. They were so yellow you could barely see through them. After the first of the 3 phases of the treatment, there was a HUGE difference in the headlights. With the second phase done it was even better, and the 3rd phase just helped them shine more. You may notice some cracking in the 3rd picture (the clearest picture) but thats unrelated to this product, just happened to be an older van that needs some general TLC. If you are having issues with yellowing or hazing on your headlights, you NEED this product.
Pros:easy to use, great results, minimal upkeep so far.
