An exploration of the surface characteristics of fibres and textiles. It emphasizes how fibre surface affects permeability, stiffness, strength, dyeing, wrinkling, and other performance characteristics to optimize production. It also illustrates methods for developing wrinkle-resistant finishes on fibre surfaces using environmentally friendly techniques.


"Each subject is complete enough in itself to be read separately, in relation to the reader's specific needs."

Cellulose Chemistry and Technology

". . .up-to-date. . .. . . .highlights so many different and exciting opportunities for fibers."
