dcterms.abstractThis paper gives a review, based on the fibre prospective, on the effect of ultraviolet (UV) radiation on the textile fibres. Both natural and synthetic fibres, including cotton, wool, poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) and nylon, are the common types of fibre found in textile and apparel. Those textile fibres can help protect human from the harmful effect caused by UV radiation. However, under the influence of UV radiation, those fibres is subjected to various degrees of damage and degradation. In order to understand the interaction of ultraviolet radiation (UVR) between textile substrate, the factors affecting ultraviolet protection factor (UPF) and photodegradation mechanism of those fibres are discussed.-
