Summary This work was designed to investigate the ability of silica-coated ZnO (ZnO&SiO2) nanoparticles (NPs) as ultraviolet (UV) absorbers for protecting pre-dyed polyester fabrics against photofading. Despite that ZnO NPs are excellent UV absorbers, their strong photocatalytic activity limits the application in UV protection. In this study, a silica layer was coated onto ZnO NPs to form a physical barrier between the ZnO and a polyester substrate, which allowed effective UV shielding while minimising the harmful effects of photocatalytic activity on the substrate. The structure and optical proprieties of ZnO&SiO2 NPs were observed. The bare ZnO and ZnO&SiO2 NPs were, respectively, applied to polyester fabrics coloured with three kinds of dyes by a dip coating method. The photofading level of treated fabrics after exposure under simulated sunlight was evaluated. The ZnO&SiO2 NPs exhibited excellent protection on pre-dyed polyester fabrics against photofading.
