Technikon Laboratories were pioneers in the development of the spray-on sunscreen. The novel spray application was designed around sportsmen who required ease of application, full and long lasting protection, and no mess! In the 90ís samples were made up, tested and tried on sportsmen in the 90ís, and the feedback was phenomenal.


Full SPF and water resistance testing was conducted by an accredited laboratory, and packaging was finalized. The first availability was through golf pro-shops, and the golf community has been one of the greatest supporters of Techniblock.


Techniblock was very likely the first aerosol spray-on sunscreen to be launched in the world.

Sales of Techniblock grew rapidly, and today Techniblock has established itself as a solid brand in numerous retail outlets across the country. Agents in the USA and Europe have now begun importing Techniblock, and international sales are growing steadily.
