Nano-TiO2 sol and finishing agent was prepared by sol-gel method, during which tetrabutyl titanate was used as precursor
and ethanol was used as solvent. The agent was penetrated into polyester fabric through a padding method, the
anti-ultraviolet performance of the fabric was analyzed and the external morphology was carefully studied afterward. The
results showed that indicated that the Nano-TiO2 particles distribute evenly with fine dispersity and stability and the
finished fabrics demonstrated exceptional anti-ultraviolet performance with a phenomenal UPF ascendance reaching up
to 50+ without influencing the breaking strength.
