This pictogram indicates the maximum force that the product will support before showing signs of degradation. Each production batch is controlled in our laboratory.
The recommended range of use of our products is between 25 and 75% elongation.
This represents 1/4 to 3/4 in addition to the initial length of the elastic, which provides a large safety margin before reaching maximum strength
UV resistance represents the capacity of the product to resist attack from sun light.
Level 1 is a low resistance to UV. The product will show signs of aging after 1 season outdoors.
Level 5 is a very high resistance to UV. Expected life time up to several years depending on exposure. Elongation in excess of our recommended stretch will reduce the product’s resistance to sunlight. Our products are tested under accelerated aging to the ASTM standards.
