We treated dyes polyester fabric with dispersion dyes we prepared before and after treating the fabric with titanium oxide TiO2 nano-particles NPs to increase self-cleaning and light fastness, and we noticed that these attributes were greatly improved. The effectiveness of the polyester fabric to block UV radiation has been tested.
