Description

Discusses the components of textile finishes, and the chemical and physical properties of, as well as their effects on, various fibres. The book covers fundamentals of fibre finish science, such as theories of friction; laboratory testing of formulations, from preliminary component evaluation to analyses for material characterization; and the influence of wetting, emulsification and finish distribution on coatings.

Table of Contents

Tension, friction and lubrication; laboratory testing and component properties; yarn to hard surface lubricants for fibre finishes; cohesive agents and fibre-to-fibre lubricants; emulsifiers; antistats; other finish additives - antioxidants, defoamers, antimicrobials and wetting agents; soil and strain-resistant textile finishes; environmental degradation of finish materials.
