The textile that communicates awareness about the current UV radiation through a color change of its material.
SOFT TECHNOLOGIE FOR TIPPING TIMES
SUNKOLOR is easy integrable into different textile applications in order to reach wide range of user.
SUNKOLOR shows you when its time to relax or when you better protect yourself.
It supports your healthy life-style in a changing environment.
MAKES THE INVISIBLE VISIBLE

The SUNKOLOR yarn can take all shapes
and can therefore be easily integrated in a wide range of products.
The color changer does not require electricity or an additional device.
Let nature communicate through textiles.
HOW SUNKOLOR WORKS

SOFT TECHNOLOGIES FOR TIPPING TIMES
Material based product research and product developement.
THE INVISIBLE GETS VISIBLE
SUNKOLOR is an inhouse soft technology of Panorama Fabrics.
The material itself is a yarn that behaves like a normal yarn with extended functions. It can be used in different textiles applications and products in order to visualize the UV-index.
We are currently developing new SUNKOLOR-colors.
FOR DAILY LIFE
living with the sun
Through the sun, the important vitamin D is formed in our body. It is essential for our immune system and provides our body with energy.
UV waves are shorter than visible light waves and that is why they seem invisible to the eye.
However, it is difficult to deal with the sun in a healthy way, because too much sun and UV radiation are very tough on the skin and health. The effects on the body are sometimes only noticed years later.
The world is changing.
We are already hitting about 1 degree of global warming. And it will probably go even higher in the next years. This has a direct impact on the climate that affects also our way of living.
The ozone layer is our natural UV radiation filter. In some places of the world the UV intesity increases due to ozone holes. These holes can shift and even reach Germany in spring.
The Competence Center Climate Impacts and Adaptation researches and publishes on the subject climate adaption and the consequences of climate change. 2021 they have added for the first time the UV exposure and the dangers towards humans as a research subject
We keep you informed about the progress of SUNKOLOR.
