The UV Protection and Innovative Cap Design workshop recently took place reating a mini capsule collection of caps for both professional and amateur yachters and regatta sailors.
The products with UV absorber properties are broken down into two groups: UV Protection and UV Resistant. UV Protection reduces the penetration of UV radiation and is provided by special additives, while UV Resistance protects the yarn from photodegradation and is obtained by the addition of special UV stabilisers.
The products offering UV protection include Starlight and Radyarn Full Dull; Starlight and Radyarn Ceramic; Starlight and Radyarn BiCo Sunshield; and Radilon Super Micro XD. The UV resistant products include Starlight and Radyarn UV stabilised yarn.
