Humanity has been endowed with the means to exploit
nature’s resources for its basic needs, namely, food, shelter, and clothing. For centuries, the clothing needs of the global population have been met by natural fibers, with the world enjoying the coolness of cotton, the warmth of wool, and the richness of silk. The growth of population, the vagaries of weather, and the resulting shortfalls in clothing needs led to the
dawn of the era of manmade fibers. The twentieth century has witnessed the evolution of a variety of fibers: cellulosic acetate and rayon, synthetic nylon, acrylic, polyester, olefin, elastomeric spandex fiber, and a variety of other smaller volume synthetic fibers. Textile fiber is the basic input for the textile
industry, which has undergone radical transformations; from the nature and composition of the fibers in the textiles, to processing technologies, machinery for their manufacture, varieties of end products, and areas of applications.

Specialty chemicals have emerged with the growth of modern technology as the vital ingredients of several industrial sectors, creating their own niche markets, and the textile industry is no exception to READ MORE >
