UV SunBlock™ is designed to help prevent the fading of colors and the degradation that can result when fiber surfaces are exposed to the sun’s damaging ultra-violet rays. Ideal for a wide range of applications: drapes, tapestries, rugs, carpets, patio furniture, upholstery, sheers, clothing, auto interiors, and more. Treated surfaces retain color vibrancy and maintain a new appearance longer. UV SunBlock™ is perfect for use on indoor and outdoor surfaces, and is effective on natural, synthetic, and blended fibers.

How & Why UV Sunblock™ Works

More than just blocking the sun’s ultra-violet rays, UV SunBlock™ actually protects fiber surfaces by absorbing the energy from these damaging rays and then releasing it back out in a harmless form. UV SunBlock™ stops UV rays at the surface, preventing them from reaching the protected surfaces.


Always test for compatibility by applying UV SunBlock™ to an inconspicuous area of the surface to be treated. For best results, apply to new or clean surfaces. As this is a solvent-based product, exercise proper caution by applying either outdoors, or in a well-ventilated area. Do not spray near flame, sparks, heated surfaces, or other potential sources of ignition. Avoid excessive airborne mist. Do not apply using high-pressure spraying equipment. Holding the sprayer 6 to 12 inches away from the surface to be treated, spray a sufficient quantity of UV SunBlock™ to evenly wet the surface. Recommended coverage is 1 ounce per 8 to 10 square feet of surface.  Treated surfaces are dry to the touch in 2 to 4 hours and completely cured in 24 hours.


For applications where both UV and soil/stain protection are desired, UV SunBlock™ can be used in conjunction with ForceField® Fabric Protector. While order of application is not critical, we suggest that UV SunBlock™ be applied first.



Outdoor surfaces exposed to the elements should be re-treated once per year after cleaning.
