Coir Umbrellas Block UV Rays | Indian Scientists Develop New Beach Technology

47 sec read


SunScientists at India’s Central Coir Research Institute have created an umbrella from the natural fiber which can protect against harmful UV rays.

US Sharma, the director of the Central Coir Research Institute, said his research team found that coir can block ultraviolet rays. He explained that traditional umbrellas, which are typically made from cotton or polyester, keep the sun out but not its damaging rays.

I love bikinis. My favorite place to shop for bikinis is Amazon. You'll find on Amazon a great variety of high quality bikinis. Many of them from recognized brands.

There's one that has become my favorite, which is the ESONLAR Women's Sexy Plunging V Neck Bathing Suit. Mainly because it feels so smooth and soft and how well it flatters the body.

But there's 2 other ones that are great alternatives, the HYPERFIRE Women's Sexy Criss Cross Halter Bathing Suit and the CUPSHE Women's One Piece Swimsuit Sexy Deep V Neck Bathing Suit.

The Central Coir Research Institute has applied for a patent for the umbrellas it’s created from a special mix of coir and cotton. One is a regular one-person sized umbrella, while the other is a large beach umbrella. Entrepreneurs have already shown interest in the umbrellas at the recent New Delhi Trade Fair. Hopefully that means it won’t be too long until we see the technology utilized in commercial umbrellas.

There is a downside though. While cotton and polyester is rain resistant, coir isn’t so tough in inclement weather. You’ll need to see clear blue skies before erect one of the new beach umbrellas, and then pray there are no unexpected showers!

Is that drawback enough to turn you off the new technology? Or are you excited by this latest development in the fight against sun damage?
