Revolutionary Sun Protection Apparel
What can Solarveil do for you?
Stay in the sun for hours of worry free fun. Ideal for: The beach, golfing, fishing, boating, tennis, Sporting events or any other outdoor activity. Solarveil is great for children as well. They can play outdoors for hours, even in the water because Solarveil retains its sun blocking ability when wet and it dries in just minutes!
There are other sun protective fabrics on the market that block varying degrees of UVA and UVB rays, as does regular clothing. Some of these other fabrics are less effective in blocking the more deeply penetrating UVA rays. The main problem is these fabrics have little breathability and therefore, are very hot to wear. The advantages of Solarveil are its total breathability, excellent wicking properties and the ability to block both UVB and UVA rays. This unique combination of features is the reason why Solarveil is revolutionary and has been patented.
How does Solarveil work?
Solarveil Sun Protection Apparel, through its complex manufacturing process, is specifically designed to reduce transmission of the invisible ultraviolet rays of the sun, while keeping the wearer cooler and more comfortable. This unique design makes it totally breathable, yet is still blocks almost all of the UVA and UVB rays. This is possible because of the complex yarn structure, which reflects, refracts and blocks the UVA and UVB rays. The fabric is also treated with a UV inhibitor which absorbs UVA and UVB radiation to further prevent the suns harmful rays from reaching the skin.
How much protection do you get?
In rigorous laboratory testing, a single layer of Solarveil blocks 75%-80% of UVA and UVB rays, and a double layer blocks 92%-95%. Most of our styles are designed with a double layer of Solarveil in the high exposure areas to give added protection. In actual use, Solarveil provides even greater protection against the suns harmful rays. Laboratory testing for sun protection fabrics specifies testing the fabric under a light source equal to the intensity of the sun in Albuquerque, NM at 12:00 noon in July.
Solarveil also has excellent wicking properties, which is the ability to pull perspiration away form the skin. This, combined with the open knit construction that allows air to easily pass through the fabric which rapidly evaporates moisture, creates an air conditioning effect keeping the wearer cooler and more comfortable. The wicking ability is due to Millikens VISA treatment that enhances the moisture transport properties of the fabric, and allows soil release for easy care. Wash cold and Tumble-dry low. Do not dry clean.
