It was in Australia that the concept of sun protection first started in 1996. The country, with a high incidence of solar rays and light color skin population, began to present alarming indexes of people with dermatological problems. Thus, a public health policy was triggered in the country to encourage new methods of sun protection. The Australian Radiation Protection and Nuclear Safety Agency (ARPANSA) is the entity that has developed the model that measures UPF of fabrics 30, 40 or 50+ in Australia. All fabrics used by UV.LINE are subjected to stringent tests by this agency and guarantee maximum protection, efficiency and quality throughout its lifespan.

UV.LINE fabrics are carefully selected and receive special treatment that ensures blocking more than 98% of solar radiation. All fabrics are tested and certified by ARPANSA. The largest protective factor is UPF 50, which blocks 98% of UV rays. All UV.LINE products have the maximum protection factor in the fabric structure, that is, throughout the product's whole life.
