Sunscreens and lotions are usually measured using Sun Protection Factor (or SPF). Items such as shade sails, umbrellas and some clothing (and window films) can be marketed showing Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF).  In order to market any product that displays a UPF rating, the product must have undergone testing with ARPANSA.  Cancer Council is a […]

One of my colleagues has described window films as ‘environmentally friendly”’. What do they mean by this?

Window films are often described as being ‘environmentally friendly’. There are a number of reasons why this is so. The patented manufacturing process minimises impact on our environment.
