Dyeing, Printing, & FinishingTotal Colour Management In Textiles
Keeping industrial applications in the forefront, Total Colour Management provides basic yet
comprehensive knowledge on the many aspects of colour management. Divided into two sections, the
book explores the separate processes of measuring and managing colour. The book touches briefly of
theoretical aspects but is firmly rooted in the practical. It delineates how to implement colour
management strategies to the working environment. Each section includes references for further
information and discussions of future trends. Written by a panel of specialists guided by expert
editorship, the book gives readers a solid working knowledge of how to approach colour management.
Total colour management will prove invaluable for individuals from a variety of disciplines and organisation levels in colour management, colour quality monitoring and evaluation as well as for graphic designers, merchandisers, product development specialists and anyone who uses colour in their work. It is also of use to academics and students researching textiles, fashion, design, fine arts, or any colour related subjects.
Fabric FormationTextile Sizing
Keeping pace with rapid developments in the field, Textile Sizing illustrates the necessity and
value of sizing techniques in the modern textile industry.
This reference analyzes new fibers, spinning methods, and weaving techniques that affects textile production, and studies the impact of fiber properties, yarn quality, sizing processes and materials, and chemical and mechanical phenomena on efficient textile manufacturing and development.
Numerous tables dispersed throughout the text provide specific guidance on the wide range of processes involved in textile sizing and helps the reader to understand the importance of desizing and its effect on size recovery and environmental pollution.
Textile sizing is the perfect text for physical, surface, colloid, textile, materials, polymer, plastics, and fiber chemists; industrial, manufacturing, textile, fiber, and composite engineers; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
Fiber SpinningYarn Texturing Technology
Yarn Texturing Technology covers all the major techniques including twist-texturing, jet-screen texturing, false-twist process, BCF processes and air-jet texturing in detail. Combining a comprehensive review of the physics and chemistry of texturing with a thorough, illustrated description of current practice, this book will be invaluable for yarn and fabric manufacturers, textile scientists and students in textile science and technology courses.

Nonwovens & Technical TextilesIntroduction to Nonwovens Technology
By Subhash K. Batra, Ph.D., Nonwovens Cooperative Research Center, North Carolina State University;
and Behnam Pourdeyhimi, Ph.D., Nonwovens Institute, North Carolina State University
Introduction to Nonwovens Technology provides unified and in-depth treatment of raw materials, web formation, bonding and melt-extrusion technologies, including background information on heat, heat transfer and polymer physics.
Covering proprietary technologies new or not widely known, Introduction to Nonwovens Technology introduces the concept of integrative technologies to produce multi-functional products, and is designed to work like a textbook or professional book, with hands-on problems and exercises.
The processing of nonwovens depends on a range of technologies, some adapted from the textile and paper industries, others developed uniquely for nonwovens production. Introduction to Nonwovens Technology provides a systematic step-by-step explanation of virtually all processes that integrate relevant raw materials into finished nonwovens for different end uses.
In comprehensive terms, Introduction to Nonwovens Technology explains the connection between the structure of nonwovens and the specialized, still-evolving technologies used to produce them—f rom simple roll goods to nanoscale webs and fiberwebs. The text also offers reviews of basic chemistry, polymer physics and heat transfer concepts, which are linked to processing and design information; and can be used by both professionals working in or new to the nonwovens industry, as well as students and instructors.
From the Foreword by John Hearle: "... the book summarizes existing technical knowledge and suggests ways of going beyond it."
