What can Solarveil do for you?

Solarveil fabric is 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, 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 most 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 sun’s harmful rays from reaching the skin.

How much protection do you get?

A single layer of Solarveil blocks 70%-80% of UVA and UVB rays, and a double layer blocks 90%-95%. Most of our styles are designed with a double layer of Solarveil in the high exposure areas to give added protection.

Solarveil also has excellent wicking properties, which is the ability to pull perspiration away from 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.
