Dyeing, Printing, & FinishingSurface Characteristics Of Fibers And Textiles: Part 2
Edited by Christopher Pastore, Paul Kiekens
Surface Characteristics of Fibers and Textiles provides an exploration of the surface characteristics of fibers and textiles. It emphasizes how fiber surface affects permeability, stiffness, strength, dyeing, wrinkling and other performance characteristics to optimize production; and illustrates methods for developing wrinkle-resistant finishes on fiber surfaces using environmentally-friendly techniques.
Surface Characteristics of Fibers and Textiles contents includes: Formaldehyde-free durable press finishing; surface characteristics of polyester fibers and polypropylene filaments; frictional properties; infrared absorption characteristics of fabrics; electrochemical sensors for the control of the concentration of bleaching agents; inorganic fibers; plasma treatments for surface modification; measuring interface strength in composite materials; thermal properties of fibrous composites; design and permeability of porous textile composites.

Nonwovens & Technical TextilesIntroduction To Nonwovens Technology
By Subhash K. Batra, Ph.D., Nonwovens Cooperative Research Center, North Carolina State University;
and Behnam Pourdeyhimi, Ph.D., Nonwovens Institute, North Carolina State University
Introduction to Nonwovens Technology provides unified and in-depth treatment of raw materials, web formation, bonding and melt-extrusion technologies, including background information on heat, heat transfer and polymer physics.
Covering proprietary technologies new or not widely known, Introduction to Nonwovens Technology introduces the concept of integrative technologies to produce multi-functional products, and is designed to work like a textbook or professional book, with hands-on problems and exercises.
The processing of nonwovens depends on a range of technologies, some adapted from the textile and paper industries, others developed uniquely for nonwovens production. Introduction to Nonwovens Technology provides a systematic step-by-step explanation of virtually all processes that integrate relevant raw materials into finished nonwovens for different end uses.
In comprehensive terms, Introduction to Nonwovens Technology explains the connection between the structure of nonwovens and the specialized, still-evolving technologies used to produce them-f rom simple roll goods to nanoscale webs and fiberwebs. The text also offers reviews of basic chemistry, polymer physics and heat transfer concepts, which are linked to processing and design information; and can be used by both professionals working in or new to the nonwovens industry, as well as students and instructors.
From the Foreword by John Hearle: "... the book summarizes existing technical knowledge and suggests ways of going beyond it."
