Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

While various books address the technical textile industry, most are vague or narrow in scope, addressing only a specific process, fabric structure, or area of application. Although the development of technical and industrial applications for textiles goes back many years, more recent milestones have marked the emergence of technical textiles, as we know them today. Very largely, these have centered upon new materials, processes, and applications.

A comprehensive new book, HANDBOOK OF TECHNICAL TEXTILES provides in-depth coverage of all the principal aspects of manufacturing processes and fabric structures, plus in-depth reporting on all major applications of high-tech textiles. This publication examines textiles for a wide range of industrial uses, including heat and flame protection applications, waterproof and breathable fabrics, geotextiles and natural fibre geotextiles; as well as the use of textiles in medicine, defence, transport and filtration; textiles for survival, and textiles and the environment.

HANDBOOK OF TECHNICAL TEXTILES is ideal for textile yarn and fibre manufacturers, producers of woven, knitted, and non-woven fabrics, textile finishers, and companies producing new textile coatings and colorants. If you work with textiles in any capacity, this will prove itself an indispensable guide and an up-to-date reference book.
