Chlorine Resistant Swimsuit

Posted by ecostinger on 16th Dec 2016

Chlorine Resistant Swimsuit is one of the most durable swimwear which can last for many seasons and several years; the fabric is durable and strong with excellent color fastening that prevent the color from bleeding or running. Chlorine Resistant Swimsuits can also provide UV and Jellyfish protection, such as the one developed by EcoStinger, which features UPF50+ uv protection, Jellyfish and sea lice protection, and chlorine resistance. 

Outdoor swimming pools are exposed to all forms of nature, particularly the wind, which usually blows dirt and grime into them. Such a situation requires constant treatment of your pool water to deter harmful organisms like bacteria and fungi from growing. Another thing you should keep in mind is that people also carry germs on their bodies that get into the water when they swim. Without proper treatment, this can lead to the spread of infectious diseases.

The most common method of swimming pool sterilization is the addition of chlorine. Unfortunately, this popular remedy is one of the main ingredients used in bleach, and can therefore cause whitening of color fabrics and the gradual dissolution of threading.

One of the main reasons why chlorine is so popular is its ability to effectively kill germs. In fact, it is also one of the main ingredients added to most of the water that goes through municipal plants. However, extremely small amounts are used in tap water; otherwise, it would lead to further problems, including fatalities. In addition, the amount of chlorine used in pools is much less than that used in washing products but much more than that used in drinking water.

Some of the well-known effects of chlorine on swimwear fabric

One of the widely-known effects of chlorine is its ability to remove stains from white clothing. However, despite its practicality, you should also remember that it can have a bleaching effect on virtually all forms of color fabric. In a situation whereby the concentration of chlorine is more than 80 ppm, the effects can be almost immediate, but where the concentrations are lower, the whitening or fading of color fabric is gradual and only becomes apparent after several exposures over a certain period.

You may have noticed that that after years of washing clothes, the color fabrics still tend to fade even if bleach is not used. In spite of the other contributing factors, this sort of fading is partly caused by trace amounts of chlorine in the water. In relation to this, you may have also noticed that a new bathing suit will visibly fade after only one swimming season. This is because bleaching typically occurs faster in pools because the levels of chlorine concentration are greater.

Chlorine can also reduce the fabric integrity of your swimwear. This is because it can slowly eat away at the fibers causing them to become thinner and thinner until they are eventually too weak or too small that they start to tear under normal use.


Even though chlorine offers an ideal solution when it comes to protecting the health of swimmers, it does not work so well for your fabrics. On the upside, there are various kinds of chlorine-resistant swimwear products available, but still none of them is 100% chlorine-proof, which means you should accept the fact that all fabrics will eventually succumb to the negative effects of chlorine. However, there are those that can last much longer than others. Such items will help you to save on future costs and also make sure that you look good whenever you decide to go for a swim.

Very Important!
Sun protection clothing, sun hats and sun protective swimwear ratings are measured in UPF; do not be misled by the wrong rating term:
Ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) is a measure of the protection provided by clothing fabrics.
Sun protection factor (SPF) is a measure of the protection provided by sunscreens.
Eye protection factor (EPF) is a measure of the protection provided by sunglasses and other eye wear.

Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) is used to indicate the fraction of the UV rays from the sun that can penetrate a fabric. It represents the percentage of UV rays that can reach the skin with and without protection from clothing. For example, a long sleeved shirt that has a UPF of say 50 can only allow 1/50th UV radiation from the sun to the skin.
