In this study, cotton and polyester fabrics have been coated with different pumice concentrations (3, 6, 9, 12 and 15%) and their physical properties (UV_ultraviolet protective and flame retardancy) are investigated. In addition, the surface properties of the fabrics are also analyzed by scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy and contact angle analysis. The findings show that the ignition and yarn breaking times of the fabrics are delayed. The results of untreated fabric samples are compared with the sample coated with 15% pumice. Cotton fabrics shows 79% increase in flame time and 51% increase in yarn break time, while polyester fabric shows 29% increase in flame time and 62% increase in yarn break time. The ultraviolet protection factor values for 3% and 15% pumice-coated polyester fabrics are 50+ and provide excellent protection. It is concluded that the micronized pumice can be a new additive material in the textile industry, especially for use in protective textiles.
