Abstract
The increasing hazard posed by UV radiation due to thinning of the ozone layer forces the textile producers to pay attention to provide textile products with some value-added properties that would guarantee the protection against harmful UV radiation. The UV absorptive efficacy of the ethanolic extract of plants was studied by using SPF analyzer. In this study, Bamboo/Cotton blended woven fabric was used for UV protection finish using herbal extracts, fruit shell of Borassus flebelliter and Phyllode of Opuntia littoralis extracts through soxhlet method and was applied on Bamboo/Cotton fabric by using Dip and dry method. The fruit shell of Borassus flabellate and Phyllode of Opuntia littoralis extract indicates sun protective property above 50 Ultraviolet Protection Factor rating. The fruit shell of Borassus flebelliter and Phyllode of Opuntia littoralis plant extracts showed similar UPF value, providing excellent UV protection when compared to the untreated sample. This type of UV protection finished sample will not only provide protection from environmental hazard but also promotes eco-friendly textiles for UV protection.
