The first set of chapters discusses the different types of polyolefins, their structural and chemical properties as well as their production methods. The second group of chapters examines how to improve the functionality of polyolefin fibres. A final group of chapters addresses how polyolefins can be incorporated into specific applications such as industrial, medical and automotive products.
Written by a distinguished team of international contributors, Polyolefin fibres: industrial and medical applications is a quintessential reference for textile technologists, fibre scientists, yarn and fabric manufacturers and also those in academia.
- Reviews the most important polyolefins including polyethylene and polyproplene, their structural and chemical properties as well as production methods- Examines methods to improve the functionality of polyolefin fibres including production methods and quality control
