The UPF was significantly higher for the fabrics that were dyed with photochromic dyes, and the values were found to easily exceed the mark 50, which meant excellent protection and shielding from solar irradiation. 8. 8 that the UPF of the fabrics exposed to UV is higher than the UPF of the fabrics exposed to the spectra of the visible light. Then, the second hypothesis, that the polyamide fabric dyed with two photochromic dyes was indeed a sensor/detector and as such a passively smart textile, was tested.

2. 5 show the reflectance curves obtained and the CIELAB diagram. 5 (a) Reflectance curves and (b) CIELAB graph of electrospun photochromic polyurethane. Spectrophotometric results show that the obtained electrospun polyurethane is photochromic. According to CIELAB parameters and the reflectance curves, clearly visible, deep blue coloration develops under the influence of UV. 5). Spectrophotometric analysis demonstrates the importance of the use of suitable experimental methods and instruments, especially the type of UV chamber equipped with separate UVA and UVB parts of the electromagnetic spectrum.
