Özet

Continual growth and developments in material technology and fiber composites provide structures with new materials; contribute to the development of new and modern structures in architectural designs. Textile material used in architecture while serving various purposes, with these new technical features added, allows for the closing of huge spaces in architecture, particularly due to its lightness. Coverings that are used in construction systems are called architectural textiles. Surfaces are coated for resistance to weather conditions. Different textile coatings have improved for textile surfaces in recent years, making the material more durable. Woven and unwoven textiles have become more popular in an increasingly diverse market. In this study microfiber that is used in architecture, which is lighter than other textile materials, chosen as the textile material and is applied to the UV absorbent in different concentrations during the dying process. The effect of UV absorbant materials on the tensile strength and the color of the textile materials, which are exposed to a variety of different weather conditions were investigated. At the results of the study, it was detected that the UV absorbent on the colored microfiber textile material has positive effects on the color and tensile strength especially in the UV absorbent amount in the 3 % concentration among different ratios.
