In this study, nano-sized barium titanate powder was applied for the first time to polyester woven fabrics by knife coating at three different concentration rates. Some physical (thickness, mass per unit area, bending rigidity, air permeability and tear strength) properties, electromagnetic shielding efficiency and solar (transmittance, reflectance) properties of samples were presented. The samples were also characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and scanning electron microscopy. Electromagnetic shielding effectiveness of the fabrics was determined according to the ASTM D4935-10 standard by using a coaxial transmission line measurement technique in the frequency range of 15-3000 MHz. The solar properties were measured according to EN14500 standard using a UV/VIS/NIR spectrophotometer and results were calculated according to EN 410 standard. Results revealed that the electromagnetic shielding effectiveness and solar reflectance property of samples improved with increasing barium titanate concentration.
