Textiles For Protection
Category: Books: Nonwovens/Technical Textiles
The late twentieth century saw an unprecedented increase in emphasis on protection of the human form, leading to the development of new textile fibers, structures, and clothing systems to provide improved protection. Textiles for Protection draws together scientific and technical experts from around the world to produce an important source of current knowledge on textile materials and clothing and their use in the protection of humans in hostile environments. The book begins with a review of materials and design issues, including legislative and regulatory issues. Part two covers general protection and applications and part three provides illustrative case studies.
