ABSTRACT: Ultraviolet Radiation (UVR) harms the human health and the incidence of

skin cancer is widely spreading all over the world. Therefore, nowadays there is a high

demand for the textiles with UV protection property and the UV protective finishing of the

materials is almost a common application. The demand is not only for “garments” or

“shirts”, but also for the awnings, the tents and the curtains for the protection against the UV

radiation coming from the sun. In the last decade, the UV protection has been the most

popular topic of research in the literature and almost all aspects of the application have been

dealt with in detail.

This paper gives a critical review of works carried out at Marmara University in the field of

UV protective finishing of textiles.
