Crazing Technology for Polyester Fibers reviews PET fibers crazing in surface-active liquids and the use of the crazing mechanism for fiber modification by functional additives. The first chapter reviews existing literature, and subsequent chapters present the research of the authors, with an emphasis on how these techniques can be used to create textiles for a wide variety of purposes.
With two highly regarded and very experienced authors bringing together the latest information on polyester crazing technology, this book is essential reading for scientific researchers, engineers, and R&D professionals working on the development of fibers for improving the properties of textiles.
- Explains fiber crazing mechanisms and processes with a view to their use in developing polyester-based high-performance textiles
- Focuses on how this mechanism can be used to confer important characteristics, such as antimicrobial properties, reduced flammability, and repellency, making this essential reading for textile scientists and technicians
- Explores novel techniques and methods for readers who require cutting-edge knowledge of developments in fiber crazing
