Abstract

This project focused on textile engineering approach on fabric against UVR transmission. In the first part, single jersey plain knit were knitted with cotton, polyester, coolmax and blended yarns in order to study UVR protection provided by various types of natural and synthetic fibre. The result reveals synthetic fabric provided higher ultraviole protection factor (UPF) values.
