A: IPD and PPD is totally different because of measurement and there can not be converted, IPD academic significance in the relatively small, so that the method used after the IPD will be less and less. As for PA interval expressed by PA + = PFA 2 ~ 4 ; PA + + = PFA 4 ~ 8; PA + + + = PFA> 8.

And PPD, INDICE UVA, UVA-Faktor or ** A and UVA ** [** digital] sense closer.

UVA-oriented products are now part of a growing, such as PPD 12 have about equal to 1.5 times the PA + + +.

Therefore, PA can be seen in the way to express their restrictive.
