Discusses the components of textile finishes, and the chemical and physical properties of, as well as their effects on, various fibres. The book covers fundamentals of fibre finish science, such as theories of friction; laboratory testing of formulations, from preliminary component evaluation to analyses for material characterization; and the influence of wetting, emulsification and finish distribution on coatings.

Industry Reviews

"The appearance of this authoritative and comprehensive handbook shows how far our understanding of fibre finish technology has progressed. This handbook will be greatly welcomed chemical formulators and by all those who process textile materials. It reviews the scientific understanding of the role of fibre finishes, and provides much useful information on the physical and chemical properties of the components used, and their effects upon fibres and yarns." ---Chemistry & Industry ." . .Drawing upon his long industrial experience and direct involvement in the development and application of spin finishes in the man-made fiber industry, Dr.Slade has compiled in one volume a vast body of data and information about an important facet of fiber technology." ---Textile Research Journal
