What is UPF 50/30 Protection?
Skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the US and 90% is sun related. 1 million people in the US alone are diagnosed every year!
Ocean-Tec USA aims to help prevent sun damage by educating the public on UPF shirts
Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) is a rating system used for apparel to indicate how much of the suns radiation is absorbed by the fabric and not your skin. The rating system goes from UPF15+ (good) to UPF50+ (excellent).
The higher the rating the better. For example, our nylon/spandex is UPF 50+ which translates that our fabric will only allow 1/50th (2%) of the UV rays to pass through it. Caution that this is only true in locations of your body covered by the garment.
