New Fibers, Second Edition

Price: $239.95

Category: Books: Fiber Spinning

Since 1990, there has been considerable changes in the nature of the fibers being produced, the production methods and in consumers values and expectations.

The march of high-tech fibers has continued with an ever-increasing sub-division to meet the specialised applications, as in high-performance, high-function and high-sense fibers.

New research and development has produced fibers with high tenacity and modulus to give the super-fibers now used as industrial materials. Ultrafine fibers can emulate the functionality and ambience of biological fibers. Synthetic cellulosics have made a particular resurgence since 1990, and the various solvent-spun fibers are now making a great impact on the market. They now offer the processability of synthetics along with the in-built advantages of natural cotton.

If you think fiber technology is a mature technology, this new book may change your mind. It examines many new high-performance, application-specific synthetic fibers recently introduced. Included are details of chemistry, research and development, properties and performance, processing, and specific industrial, consumer and medical applications. This extensive survey of new fibers and fiber technology serves the information needs of all those involved in the development and commercialization of new and improved fibers.
