USE SUNSELECT FOR YOUR GARMENTS

Our Patent


The SunSelect fabrics are scientifically developed so they selectively filter ultraviolet sunrays for safer tanning. The SunSelect fabrics differ from traditional sun protection products because the substances do not contain harmful chemicals. The UV-B protection is integrated in the fibers. This is achieved by using extremely small openings in the fabric. These openings are made in such a way that no flashy designs are needed to hide the transparent nature of the material. Because we do not work with chemical additives, the protection cannot be washed out. This ensures long lasting effect. The SunSelect substances therefore always retain their effectiveness. SunSelect fabrics are globally patented fabrics, so you know your competition wil not be able to copy these distinct features of your products when you use SunSelect for production of your garments.

Questions and answers


We would like to offer you fabrics that allows you to make clothing (such as for example: swimming, sports, casual wear, burkini’s, kerchiefs, etc) with almost magical properties. The fabrics used for this are SunSelect fabrics, which act as a UV sunscreen and are made of a special polyester or polyamide yarn and a different yarn, such as cotton, tencel, coolmax, bamboo or lycra.
The special polyester or polyamide yarn has a property that blocks most of the burning UV-B rays, but allows a sufficient percentage of the browning UV-A sunrays. The SunSelect fabrics work like a suncream.
No, the SunSelect fabric has been knitted in a very special way so that a small percentage of the UV-B sun rays pass through the tiny openings between the stitches. The wearer needs this small percentage to get a tan.
No! Because the SunSelect fabric works like a suncream, the use of suncream under the garment is not recommended. Please note: protect your skin with suncream in places that are not covered by the SunSelect fabric.
No! Because the SunSelect fabric works like a suncream, the use of suncream under the garment is not recommended. Please note: protect your skin with suncream in places that are not covered by the SunSelect fabric.
No! We have established that since only a small percentage of the UV-B sun- rays reach the skin, the skin is not burnt or damaged and thus there is no peeling or blistering. On the contrary, not only that the skin does not show flakes, we have established that a UV-A tan has a longer lifespan than when the tanning is effected by the sun, either unprotected or with the use of a sun lotion
In the E.U., under the supervision of Interlad BV, every production is inspected and tested for its effectiveness.
