Textiles - Solar UV protective properties - Part 1: Method of test for apparel fabrics

This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of the erythemally weighted ultraviolet (UV) radiation transmittance of standard conditioned apparel fabrics to assess their solar UV protective properties. This method is not suitable for fabrics which offer protection at a distance such as umbrellas, shade structures or artificial sources.

Textilien - Schutzeigenschaften gegen ultraviolette Sonnenstrahlung - Teil 1: Prüfverfahren für Bekleidungstextilien

Diese Europäische Norm legt ein Verfahren zur Bestimmung der Durchlässigkeit der hinsichtlich Erythem gewichteten ultravioletten Strahlung für normgerecht konditionierte Bekleidungstextilien zur Feststellung ihrer Schutzeigenschaften gegen ultraviolette Sonnenstrahlung fest.
Dieses Verfahren ist nicht für Textilien geeignet, die einen Schutz aus einem Abstand bieten, wie zum Beispiel Schirme, Konstruktionen zur Abschattung oder Vergleichbares.
ANMERKUNG   Diese Norm braucht nicht für Textilien mit kleinen Variationen in der Farbe und im Aufbau geeignet zu sein.

Textiles - Propriétés de protection contre le rayonnement UV solaire - Partie 1: Méthode d'essai pour étoffes destinées a l'habillement

La présente Norme européenne spécifie une méthode pour la détermination du facteur de transmission du rayonnement ultraviolet (UV) pondéré par la courbe d'érythème d'étoffes pour vêtements en conditionnement normal en vue 'évaluer leurs propriétés de protection contre le rayonnement UV solaire.
La présente méthode ne convient pas aux étoffes offrant une protection à distance telles que les parasols, les structures destinées à créer de l'ombre ou les sources de rayonnement artificielles.
NOTE   La présente norme peut s'avérer inappropriée pour des étoffes comportant de petites variations de couleur et de structure.

3 1 Scope This European Standard specifies a method for the determination of the erythemally weighted ultraviolet (UV) radiation transmittance of standard conditioned apparel fabrics to assess their solar UV protective properties.

This method is not suitable for fabrics which offer protection at a distance such as umbrellas, shade structures or artificial sources. NOTE This standard may not be appropriate for fabrics with small colour and construction variations. 2 Normative references This European Standard incorporates by dated or undated reference, provisions from other publications. These normative references are cited at the appropriate place in the text, and the publications are listed hereafter. For dated references, subsequent amendments to or revisions of any of these publications apply to this European Standard only when incorporated in it by amendment or revision. For undated references the latest edition of the publication referred to applies (including amendments).

It is expressed as W m-2 nm-1. The solar UVR spectrum as measured at the earth’s surface extends between 290 nm and 400 nm 3.1.4 erythema reddening of the skin caused by various physical or chemical agents 3.1.5 erythema action spectrum εεεε(λλλλ) relative erythemal effectiveness of radiation with wavelength λ

In this case part of the diffused transmitted radiation is intercepted and will not enter the sphere. The sample recess error depends on sample construction, distance of sample from port and ratio of port and illumination patch dimensions 3.1.11 shade particular hue, depth or lightness of colour 3.1.12 construction set of parameters such as materials, interlacing, pattern, … which describe the fabric 3.1.13 Ultraviolet Protection Factor (UPF) expression of the level of protection as attained by the method described in this standard 4 Principle The UPF of a textile material is determined from the total spectral transmittance)(λT as follows: ∑∑∆==∆===λλελλλλλλ ελλλ)()()(290400)()(290400TEEUPF with:

)(λE: the solar irradiance (see annex A);
)(λε: the erythema action spectrum (see annex A);

∆λ: the wavelength interval of the measurements; T(λ): the spectral transmittance at wavelength λ.

EN 13758-1:2001+A1:2006 (E)

The total spectral transmittance is measured by irradiating the sample with monochromatic or polychromatic UV radiation and collecting the total (diffuse and direct) transmitted radiation. In the case of polychromatic incident radiation, the transmitted radiation is collected monochromatically. The apparatus shall either irradiate the sample with a parallel beam and collect all transmitted radiation with an integrating sphere or irradiate the sample hemispherically and collect a parallel beam of transmitted radiation. 5 Apparatus The measurement device consists of the following: 5.1 A UV source, providing UV radiation throughout the wavelength range 290 nm to 400 nm. Suitable UV sources include Xenon arc lamps, Deuterium lamps and Solar simulators. 5.2 An integrating sphere, having total openings representing not more than 10 % of the internal spherical surface. The internal surface shall be lined with a highly reflective matt surface, e.g. barium sulphate paint. It shall be fitted with baffles to shield the inner detector or the inner source from the specimen port and, if applicable, the sphere wall where the incident flux is measured.

5.3 A monochromator, suited for measurements with a spectral bandwidth of 5 nm or less in the wavelength region 290 nm to 400 nm. 5.4 UV transmitting filter, which transmits significantly only at wavelengths less than approximately 400 nm and which does not fluoresce. 5.5 A specimen holder to hold a specimen in a flat, tensionless or in a predefined stretched state. This device shall not obstruct the entrance port of the integrating sphere and shall ideally position the fabric in the plane of the integrating sphere port. In the case where a parallel incident beam is used, the surface of the beam should be at least 25 mm2 and should cover at least 3 times the repeat fabric construction. Moreover, in the case of a monochromatic incident beam and for reducing the sample recess error, the ratio of the smallest dimension of the port of the integrating sphere to the largest dimension of the illumination patch shall also be larger than 1,5. The beam should be normal to the fabric to within ± 5 degrees. The angular divergence of the beam should be less then 5 degrees about the beam axis. These conditions should apply to the collected beam if diffuse illumination is used. A suitable UV transmitting filter shall be positioned between the sample and the detector if the instrument monochromates before the sample. When this is not practical the filter shall be placed at the specimen port between the specimen and the sphere. The thickness of the UV transmitting filter shall be between 1 mm and 3 mm.
