UPF Testing - UV Protection

Have you ever got sunburned even after applying suntan lotion? If so, would you consider a physical sunscreen that is more powerful in deflecting or blocking the sun's rays? UV protective garments can be a good option for protecting you from burning under strong UV conditions.
  
How can you add value to your products by providing evidence of good UV protective features?
  
  • Demonstrate the UV protective capability of the fabrics/garments
  • Easily match the classification and labelling of Australian, New Zealand, US, EU and China markets with UV protective products
  • Provide evidence of the protective feature in reducing the risk of skin cancer 
  
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) is used to measure the UV protection capability of the fabric/garments covering protection against both UVA and UVB.
