SUN PROTECTION CLOTHING FABRIC
The supplier insists on using only the highest quality UPF50+ protective fabric. The fabric has a breathable mesh construction that makes for a fine and silky feel while offering exceptional softness and stretch.
It allows the breeze to penetrate through the fibres while blocking 98% of harmful UV rays. With a moisture management treatment that absorbs perspiration away from the body, the fabric is also sanitised and antibacterial.
It is quick drying, lightweight and durable. It is fade and chlorine resistant. Not only offering maximum sunprotection but maximum comfort – it is ideally suited to our harsh Australian climate.
We guarantee that not only will it give you peace of mind. … it may be the most comfortable and durable fabric you will wear.
IS THIS FABRIC HOT TO WEAR?
This new tech lightweight UPF50+ microfibre fabric is woven in a way that is designed not only to give you in-built UPF50+ sun protection (ie no added chemicals!) but to keep you cool , dry and comfortable. This breathable mesh construction has a moisture wicking system that rapidly absorbs the perspiration from your body not only to keep you dryer but it creates your own personal ‘air conditioning’ system even in the most hot and humid conditions!! In addition the antimicrobial properties help sanitise and minimise odour. Being lightweight, incredibly durable and quick-drying it is the perfect fabric to keep you and your family protected from the harsh Australian sun.
HOW DO I KNOW THE FABRIC IS RATED UPF50+?
All our fabrics are independently tested by ARPANSA to AUS/NZ S 4399 (UV protection) and 4602 standards (Hi-Vis protection).
WHY NOT COTTON?
To get the same UV protection (UPF50+) from a cotton fabric the cotton density (weight) needs to be very heavy and/or chemicals added to the finished garment (this can cause skin irritation). This in turn compromises the strength of the natural fibre and airflow. In hot and humid conditions, the cotton garment becomes clammy, heavier, and wetter and ultimately more uncomfortable! Because cotton is a natural substance, the fibres tend to breakdown quicker with each wash therefore reducing the UV protection. Most lightweight cotton garments have an approx. UV rating of only 5 – this means that the UV rays can easily penetrate the garment and cause sunburn to the wearer and reduces a further 50% when wet!!Share this:
