Chemical Testing of Textiles
Category: Books: General/Reference
Chemical testing of textiles is a comprehensive book that gives a full overview of chemical testing
for both academics and industry. It provides a comprehensive coverage of the chemical analysis
procedure for a broad range of textiles. It introduces fundamental chemical concepts and
rudimentary procedures and tries to balance the theoretical and practical parts of the contents. In
most cases, the chemical analysis is undertaken with a test method regulated and updated by a
professional organization. It serves as a great accompaniment to Physical testing of textiles. It
is has been compiled with the hard work of a team of contributors including professors, material
researchers and textile analysts from Britain, Germany, Canada and the United States of America.
The opening chapter discusses fibre and yarn identification and is followed by nine separate chapters discussing different chemical analyses with regard to textiles. These include leather, textile wet processes, fibre finishes, coatings, performance related tests, wastewater, and dyes and pigments.
This book will be a valuable resource for academic and industrial chemists, lecturers and students of textile chemistry and related subjects. It will also serve as a valuable resource for textile plant managers, process engineers, technologists, qualified practitioners, textile research and testing institutes, quality inspectors, chemist-colourists and textile designers.
