This is the ultraviolet protection factor (from the English Ultraviolet Protection Factor).

The textile industry uses it as a standard to determine the level of sun protection of a garment's fabric, rated from 15 to 50+.

Our UPF 50+ rashguards have the maximum UV protection , i.e. 98% of the sun's rays are blocked, even when wet.

This protection is obtained without chemical treatment , thanks to the very tight mesh of the micro fibers. It is therefore permanent and will remain wash after wash.

Here are some arguments for sunscreen versus F2M lycras:

diffuses its chemical components in the water / without toxic products

effective if applied ½ hour before exposure / effective as soon as worn

protection guaranteed if applied regularly / lycra worn = unlimited protection

single use / durable and reusable

plastic tube container / made from recycled fishing nets

the sand sticks / nothing sticks and you are even protected from rubbing

In the long term, the sun protection provided by lycras is the most economical and the most ecological.

Here are 4 good reasons to fall for an F2M rashguards :

- it is certified UPF50+, maximum sun protection , without any chemical additives - without imprint on marine life

- it is made in France - short circuits

- it is made of recycled fishing nets and nylons - circular economy

- it is extra resistant to chlorine and salt water and maintains its shape - top of the range

“If I put on my T-shirt, don't I need an anti-UV top? »

Your dry t-shirt will block UV rays up to 80% and once wet only 65%, while F2M lycras protect you from 98% of UVA and UVB dry or wet.

They are all UPF50+ certified , the maximum sun protection.
