Processes of the latticing of polymer overprints functionalising textiles in the presence of photoinitiators require using high-energy UV radiation sources. However, the values of radiation intensities and UV doses used should be controlled so that they are no greater than those required by the proper course of the latticing process, on account of the high degrading impact of UV radiation on the fibre structure. In this article a mathematical model of intensity and UV dose radiation measurement constructed on the basis of the analysis of the phenomenon and catalogue information given by the producers of the radiation source, the UV filter and the sensor. The model of UV intensity measurement was analysed with regard to inaccuracy on the basis of the uncertainty theory; the relative uncertainty of the measurement obtained was of an order of 3%.
