Nanofinishing of Textile Materials - by Majid Montazer & Tina Harifi (Hardcover)
About this item
Nanofinishing of Textile Materials provides thorough coverage of existing, current and future developments in the field. Sections cover a wide range of nanofinishing mechanisms for improving the fundamental properties of textiles, such as bleaching, scouring, softening and surface activation. Other sections discuss high-performance properties and conventional attributes, such as waterproofing, fire-retardancy and novel applications, including conductivity and magnetism. With two highly regarded and experienced authors bringing together the latest information on nanofinishing technology, this book is essential reading for scientific researchers, engineers and R&D professionals working on the development of finishes for improving the properties of textiles.
- Explains nanofinishing mechanisms and processes with a view to their use in developing high-performance apparel and technical textiles
- Focuses on how nanofinishing can be used to confer important characteristics, such as self-cleaning, hydrophobic, hydrophilic, magnetic and conductive attributes
- Explores novel techniques and methods for readers who require cutting-edge knowledge of developments in nanofinishing
