Providing a Protection Against Ultraviolet Lights Indoors Via Cotton Textiles

774 376


Apart from the special glasses used for the building pockets, almost all of the glasses are permeable against the ultraviolet lights. Therefore it is more practical and economical to provide protection against ultraviolet lights via curtains in the fronts instead of special glasses. In this study; the ultraviolet protection fabrics of the 100% cotton woven fabric, which is raw, bleached, dyed without being applied ultraviolet absorbent and dyed after being applied ultraviolet absorbent in different concentration. According to the results, it was determined that a prefect protection can be enabled indoors by using ultraviolet absorbent, and the results showed that the ultraviolet protection increases with increase in the concentration of  ultraviolet absorbent in the samples.
