Processes of linking polymer coatings which functionalise 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 will not be greater than required by the proper course of the linking process, on account of the high degrading impact of UV radiation on the fibre structure. For this reason, optimisation of the radiation process is necessary to ensure the appropriate durability of the coating in conditions of use and when washing the product, thereby minimising fibre degradation. In this article, a laboratory stand is presented for optimisation of the process of the UV curing of polymer coatings that functionalise textiles . A method of calibrating the radiation system is presented in which the programming of parameters can be performed each time without the need to use a system of measurement of the intensity and UV radiation dose.
