New Process Developed For UV-Protective Clothing

New York City-based Higgins Industries Inc. has developed a UV sun-protective clothing process called BFX. Fabric treated with the BFX protection has been tested by the International UV Testing Laboratories at Auburn University, Auburn, Ala., and awarded a 50+ UPF rating, the highest international rating level available.BFX-treated textiles block 98 to 99 percent of the suns harmful UVA and UVB rays. Tom Higgins, Higgins Industries, expressed concern about the depletion of the ozone layer, saying, If you consider that 80 percent of the harmful exposure occurs during our childhood, it is really important we get an educational message out to our youth of the importance of protecting themselves with sunscreens and the correct clothing.
