Probably this is the very first complete book on textile color matching. Color science is a difficult subject, but this book provides excellent, easy-to-understand, and practical information, which is essential for people involved in any textile coloration process. The book is equally good for all people in textile manufacturing, from fiber, yarn to fabric, dyeing, printing to finishing, and inspection of raw material to quality control of finished textile goods.
Topics covered in this comprehensive, pocket-sized reference book include pre-dyeing treatments
(singeing, desizing, scouring, bleaching, mercerization and others), dyes and dyeing methods,
printing methods, and mechanical and chemial finishing treatments.
Process control and color analysis also are presented.

Surface Characteristics of Fibers and Textiles provides an exploration of the surface characteristics of fibers and textiles. It emphasizes how fiber surface affects permeability, stiffness, strength, dyeing, wrinkling and other performance characteristics to optimize production; and illustrates methods for developing wrinkle-resistant finishes on fiber surfaces using environmentally-friendly techniques.
Surface Characteristics of Fibers and Textiles contents includes: Formaldehyde-free durable press finishing; surface characteristics of polyester fibers and polypropylene filaments; frictional properties; infrared absorption characteristics of fabrics; electrochemical sensors for the control of the concentration of bleaching agents; inorganic fibers; plasma treatments for surface modification; measuring interface strength in composite materials; thermal properties of fibrous composites; design and permeability of porous textile composites.

Addressing different aspects of the coated and laminated textiles, this book covers compound ingredients; the importance of setting and adhering to processing conditions; the accurate control of production variables; the safe handling of potentially toxic materials; ongoing research into future products which will facilitate recycling and disposal. It will be helpful in giving an understanding of the challenges and opportunities facing technologists, chemists, and production engineers working in the very contemporary field of coating and lamination.
Keeping industrial applications in the forefront, Total Colour Management provides basic yet
comprehensive knowledge on the many aspects of colour management. Divided into two sections, the
book explores the separate processes of measuring and managing colour. The book touches briefly of
theoretical aspects but is firmly rooted in the practical. It delineates how to implement colour
management strategies to the working environment. Each section includes references for further
information and discussions of future trends. Written by a panel of specialists guided by expert
editorship, the book gives readers a solid working knowledge of how to approach colour management.
Total colour management will prove invaluable for individuals from a variety of disciplines and organisation levels in colour management, colour quality monitoring and evaluation as well as for graphic designers, merchandisers, product development specialists and anyone who uses colour in their work. It is also of use to academics and students researching textiles, fashion, design, fine arts, or any colour related subjects.
Textile Processing with Enzymes covers all of the relevant issues from basic biochemistry and
enzymology to the industrial application of these biocatalysts.
The book begins with the fundamental aspects of enzymes determining catalytic properties, followed by a summary of fibrous and non-fibrous materials as substrates for enzymes. It discusses catalysis and processing, with an overview of the function and application of enzymes used in textile processing, and addresses process engineering and industrial enzyme applications.
The final chapters present the practical aspects of handling enzymes, provide a detailed look at operational and storage stabilities, and consider the use of enzymes in effluent treatment.
As a comprehensive guide to textile processing with enzymes, this book explains the applications that are transforming the industry. It is a valuable resource for scientists and engineers with a basic background in textiles, biotechnology, chemistry, or engineering, as well as students interested in the subject.
Gore-Tex®, chemical protective clothing, architectural fabrics, air bags...Intensive research and development in coated-fabric materials and processes has led to new and improved products for a wide range of consumer, industrial, medical, and military applications. Coated Textiles: Principles and Applications provides the first comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of this technology and its applications. From coating materials and substrates to coating methods, physical properties, and testing techniques, the author presents detailed examinations of the chemistry, processing, properties, and applications of coated fabrics. He explores the full range of applications, including foul weather clothing, architectural, automotive, and other nonapparel uses, and high-tech applications, such as chemical protective clothing, thermochromic fabrics, camouflage nets, and metal coated fabrics. Worldwide, the production of coated fabrics for defense alone is a multi-billion dollar business, yet the interdisciplinary nature of the field has left the published work scattered throughout the polymer science, textile technology, and chemical engineering literature. Coated Textiles: Principles and Applications offers a unique opportunity to acquire an authoritative, one-stop resource valuable both as a reference and as a stimulus for developing new and improved coated textile products.
