Study on the UV-Protective Performance of Cotton Fabrics Dyed with Natural Dyes
In this study, the ultraviolet protective properties of the cotton fabrics dyed with natural dyes were investigated. It was observed that cotton fabrics dyed with natural dyes could absorb about 80% of the ultraviolet rays. It was demonstrated that the UV-protective effects were strongly dependent on the absorption characteristics of natural dyes for UV radiation.
