FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
Warmth and wind
The minimum water temperature recommended for the use of this UV-protection T-shirt is 22°C if it is worn on its own. This top is made of fleece which insulates from the cold and helps avoid shivering when you enter the water. Please note that the presence of wind will have an impact and can cause discomfort when wet, making you feel colder.
Protect your little ones!
Babies' skin is very sensitive to the sun as children's defence systems are established after the age of 3. With identical exposure, the effects of the sun are 2 to 3 times stronger on a child than on an adult. It is therefore very important to protect them effectively.
UV protection even when wet
The fabric of this TRIBORD UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). In compliance with the EN-13758-2 standard, it guarantees effective protection against the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The integration of ceramic particles directly into the fibres of the product provides durable protection over time, even after washing.
What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardised worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
Behaviour when in the sun
Although this T-shirt provides protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account. Wearing this T-shirt does not exempt the wearer from adopting suitable behaviour: wear sunglasses, wear a hat or cap, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, drink regularly, etc.
Sun protection guide
Young children have a head size that is proportionately larger than that of adults. To make it easier when getting dressed, this UV-resistant top has press studs at the back of the collar.
The polyester textile is naturally quick drying. An additional water-repellent treatment prevents water absorption to limit shivering in case of wind. It also makes drying easier. The effects of this treatment will wear off after 5 or 6 machine washes, so to increase the lifetime of the treatment, it is preferable to rinse in fresh water rather than wash with detergent. If there is wind, however, it is advisable to dry your baby and his T-shirt with a towel.
