There is increasing demand for technical textiles with properties such as reduced flammability, antimicrobial properties and aromatization. Crazing technology can be applied to polymer fibres to produce a number of these properties, and has the potential to reduce costs and improve quality in comparison to other traditional methods of fibre modification.
This book reviews PET fibers crazing in surface-active liquids and the use of the crazing mechanism for fibre modification by functional additives. The first chapter review 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 makes essential reading for scientific researchers, engineers and R&D professionals working on the development of fibres for improving the properties of textiles
