This blog explains that UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor and indicates what level of UV radiation is absorbed by the fabric (and is therefore blocked before it reaches your skin).The Australian Government tests and rates the UPF rating of fabrics.
Solbari Sun Protection fabrics are tested and accredited UPF 50+ by ARPANSA, the Australian Government agency responsible for attributing UPF sun protective ratings to fabrics. UPF stands for ultraviolet protection factor and UPF 50+, the highest UPF rating means that only up to 2% of UV can penetrate the fabric.
This blog explains how the Australian Government UPF clothing testing process works. ARPANSA have been testing and rating UPF clothing since 1990. The UPF clothing ratings awarded range from UPF 15 to 50+. UPF 50+ is the maximum UPF clothing rating achievable.
