Abstract: The effect of different dyes and finishes on UV protection property of jute/cotton union fabrics has been studied. Bleaching with H2O2 makes the fabrics more permeable to UV rays. It is observed from spectral analysis that the monochlorotriazinyl reactive dye with cyanuric chloride nucleus, such as Cibacron Red FAL, is quite effective in UV protection. From the UV-visible spectral analysis, Cibatex UPF is found to be a suitable finishing agent for rendering sufficient UV protection to the jute/cotton fabric. Simultaneous dyeing and finishing with Cibacron Red FAL and Cibatex UPF provides higher UV protection. The treatment of jute/cotton fabric with titanium dioxide also provides satisfactory protection against UV rays.
