by Vapor Apparel on Jun 14, 2023
When it comes to sun protection, not all apparel is created equal. Vapor Apparel has long been a trusted name in the industry, offering superior products that combine style, comfort, and most importantly, effective sun protection. In this blog post, we delve into the science behind Vapor Apparel's sun protection. We will unveil the innovations that set our UV-blocking technology apart from the competition.
Understanding the Science of Sun Protection:
Before we dive into the specifics of Vapor Apparel's innovative technology, let's first understand the science behind sun protection. Harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun can cause skin damage, premature aging, and even skin cancer. Clothing acts as a physical barrier between your skin and the sun, reducing the amount of UV radiation that reaches your skin. Vapor apparel’s entire line of solar shirts has earned The Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation. This means that our UV-blocking sun shirts have met the specific criteria for effective UV protection.
Vapor Apparel's Superior Sun Protection:
Vapor Apparel takes sun protection to a whole new level. Our UV-blocking garments are specifically engineered to provide exceptional UV protection, giving you peace of mind while enjoying outdoor activities. Here's how Vapor Apparel achieves superior sun protection using UV-blocking technology:
- Fabric Technology: Vapor Apparel has engineered advanced fabrics that are specially designed through fabric construction, dyeing, and finishing to block a significant amount of UV rays. Our Core Solar Fabric protects the skin whether it’s dry or wet. The UPF increases as the garments are washed and dried although we only claim 50+ UPF, as that is the highest rating allowed in the U.S. These fabrics then undergo rigorous testing to ensure they meet or exceed industry standards for UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) ratings.
- UPF Ratings: Vapor Apparel's products are assigned UPF ratings, which indicate the level of sun protection. A higher UPF rating means greater protection from UV radiation. With Vapor Apparel, you can find a wide range of products with varying UPF ratings to suit your specific needs.
- Moisture-Wicking Technology: Comfort is a key consideration for Vapor Apparel. Our garments feature moisture-wicking properties that draw sweat away from your skin, keeping you dry and comfortable even in the hottest weather. This technology ensures you can enjoy your outdoor activities without feeling weighed down by heavy, sweat-soaked clothing.
- Cooling Technology: Embedded in the fabric of the garments, Vapor Apparel incorporates a remarkable cooling technology that takes comfort to a whole new level. Designed to combat the summer heat, this innovative feature ensures that you stay comfortable and refreshed even on the hottest days. When the fabric becomes wet, either through sweat or by being soaked in water, the cooling technology kicks into action dropping the fabric temperature to 70 F. It utilizes the principles of evaporative cooling to create a refreshing sensation against your skin. As the moisture evaporates from the fabric, it draws heat away from your body, resulting in a noticeable cooling effect.
Innovative Technology: Unveiling the UV-Blocking Technology Features:
Vapor Apparel goes beyond conventional sun protection methods with our innovative technology. Here are some of the cutting-edge features in our apparel that make their UV-blocking technology stand out:
- Enhanced UV Reflection: Vapor Apparel incorporates reflective materials into the fabrics, increasing the garment's ability to reflect UV rays away from your body. This added layer of protection maximizes your defense against harmful sun exposure.
- No-Odor Technology: Alongside superior sun protection, Vapor Apparel integrates a permanent antimicrobial treatment into our fabrics. This treatment helps prevent the growth of odor-causing bacteria, ensuring your apparel stays fresh and odor-free, even during extended outdoor adventures.
- Durability and Longevity: Vapor Apparel's sun protection features are built to last. The fabrics are designed to maintain their UV-blocking properties even after repeated wash and wear, ensuring your garments provide reliable sun protection season after season.
