Sun protection

People seem to have a love-hate relationship with the sun. Although we can all appreciate warm summer days and a tan, we also want the luxury of switching of the sunlight in our cars and houses. And with the growing awareness of the negative effects of UV light, people are more and more looking for ways to enjoy the sun in a responsible way.

When it comes to blocking out sunlight, textiles are the perfect way. The increasing focus on sun-safe solutions offers a whole new market for products that offer sun protection and exclusion, such as blinds, sun-proof sails and tents, and all sorts of apparel. But as is the case with sun block, fabrics also have a factor qualifying their sun protectiveness. If you want to be at the front row of the sun protection trend, you should therefore offer high-quality sun protective fabrics that look and act the part.

What’s in it for me?

So here’s the challenge: people want blinds and clothes that are sun-safe, but they don’t want those features to affect the look and feel of the product. This means you should come up with high-quality fabrics that have a soft touch, a nice appearance and exceptional sun protective features. There are fabrics that have a natural way of filtering out UV light, but to achieve perfect quality, you can also use sun protective coatings. These coatings not only keep the sun out, but also protect the fabric against yellowing. And with the growing demand for sustainably produced products, the type of coating becomes a factor as well. Unlike solvent based coatings, water based coatings contain no volatile organic compounds, meaning they’ll be more appealing to your critical customers. Moreover, a water based coating has a soft touch and imitates the natural features of the fabric more closely, which is just what they asked for.

We’re ready to help you challenge the great ball of fire. We offer water based solvent free PU systems that are suitable for making sun-safe products across various industries. Whether it’s about protection or sun blocking altogether, our coatings get the job done.
