    I have only seen "shine proof" used with cosmetics/makeup.

    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my amendments to your post in red. Remember to follow the rules of written English at all times:

    - Start every sentence with a capital letter.
    - End every sentence with a single appropriate punctuation mark.
    - Always capitalise the word "I".
    - Always capitalise proper nouns (English, London, Microsoft, Shakespeare).
    - Do not put a space before a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    - Always put a space after a comma, full stop, question mark or exclamation mark.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Re: association possible

    Thank you mikenewyork!

    @emsr2d2
    Thanks for the corrections!
    The question is, if someone (from the usa or england) is understanding "shineproof" as a form of glarelight protection? Or does that make any sense in this sentence?
    Thank you!!!

    Re: association possible

    I would not understand what was meant.

    I don't understand "glarelight protection."

    I do know that some glasses have an "anti-glare" coating. Is that what you mean?

    Re: association possible

    hm, ok! thanks barb_D!
    the question in other form:
    if the sun is shining, your looking in to the light, then you are glared (?). or how do you cal this?
    shineproof should be associated as a protection from the sunlight. is it?
    cheers christian

    Re: association possible

    Christian, if you are going to ignore the rules of written English which emsr2d2 gave you in post #2 we are going to ignore your badly written efforts.

    You must show us you are at least trying to improve if you want us to take you seriously.

    not a teacher

    It's not clear what it is that provides this protection. Are they glasses of some kind? If they are protecting against the glare then they would more usually be called "glare-proof". If you Google that phrase you'll see that several products already use this description including some peculiar looking driving glasses from 1932.

    then you are glared (?)
