Paper Abstract

It is predicted if the dye strongly absorbed the ray in shorter UV wavelength, the ray energy might destroy the dye structure. Color fastness of dyed fabric is also an important character from a viewpoint of aesthetic sense and textile end use. The purpose of this study is to investigate the relation between the blocking property of dyed fabric against UV-rays and its color fastness to light. The cotton fabrics dyed with different types of direct dyes (red, blue and yellow) and their dye solutions were respectively irradiated by xenon arc lamp. The results were as follow. Color fading of dyed fabrics depended on the structure of dyes. Even the dye having lower fastness property to light, the darker shade fabrics dyed with them were examined still remaining higher UV blocking property.
