Hybrid Yarns and Textile Preforming for Thermoplastic Composites Book Excerpt:

The Textile Progress monograph series provides a critical and comprehensive examination of the origination and application of developments in the textile industry and its products. This issue reviews developments in Polymer composites which are increasingly gaining importance as substitute materials for metals in the aerospace, automotive, marine, sporting goods and electronic industries. In past decades, fiber-reinforced composite materials were principally fabricated using thermosetting matrices, with all the associated disadvantages (eg brittleness, lengthy cure cycles and inability to recycle damaged or scrapped parts). Such intrinsic problems have led to the recent development of the thermoplastic matrix composite system, which provides several advantages in terms of mechanical properties and processing. This monograph covers the characterization of hybrid yarns, their structure and properties, and details various types of preforming in the context of the major textile manufacturing techniques (weaving, braiding, knitting etc.). These are described in relation to the practical application of thermoplastic materials in applications within the transport, manufacturing and medical sectors.

Value Added Textile Yarns Manufacturing Techniques and its uses Book Excerpt:

“Value added textile yarns” means a thread increases its value from the conventional ones with respect to price and aesthetic and functional properties or all at a time. These may be the changes of either bulk, colour, using different raw materials, any changes of technical parameters periodically or randomly etc. along the length of the yarns. Value added also refers to the worth added to a product during production process, means the difference between the selling price and the cost of production is more from the normal product. The more the difference, more will be the value added. The global market of “Value added Textile Yarns” and its products is leaping forward as the conscious of the mankind is gradually increasing. The textile products are lighter, stronger, less effective by the environment are getting popularity in each field of engineering. The book deals from the basic value added yarns, like doubled or folded yarns, to the modern concept of novelty yarns in different fields, like fancy yarns, conductive yarns, medical yarns etc. The book is also discussed the production of bottle flake yarns. Manufacturing technology including modern and conventional is also described in short here, but the most important and necessary material are incorporated. Mathematical Calculation, important technical parameters, etc. are also mentioned. We do hope that the book will satisfy the students, researchers and also those who are in the industries.

Polymeric Protective Technical Textiles Book Excerpt:

The current size of the personal protective clothing and equipment market in the EU alone is estimated at a 9.5-10 billion, with around 200,000 jobs directly or indirectly related to these products and services. The fast growth forecasted in certain parts of the world suggests that EU exports could grow by about 50% over the next 5-10 years. New fibres and new functionality will increase the global size of this niche market. Among the issues of specific concern for protective textiles are swifter development and use of international standards in the global market, which, combined with appropriate measures for the protection of intellectual property, would accelerate the increase in demand for protective textiles. This book contains authoritative chapters addressing issues ranging from anti-microbial textiles through to textiles for aircraft ejector seats. The protective textiles lead market offers opportunities for the entire textile sector. Spill-over effects from faster growing innovations in protective textiles to other market segments, such as interior textiles or functional clothing, would considerably increase the economic impact of the lead market, thus increasing the knowledge content and the added-value, contributing to a sustainable competitiveness of the entire textile sector. Global textile fibre usage in 2011 grew to 82 million tonnes and is estimated to grow to 101 million tonnes in 2017. There were record purchases of textile manufacturing machinery in 2012 - with increased use and processing of natural and synthetic polymer fibres. This book will prompt new ideas for product development in this rapidly expanding area and will be of interest to academics, students and industrialists.

Physico chemical Aspects of Textile Coloration Book Excerpt:

The production of textile materials comprises a very large and complex global industry that utilises a diverse range of fibre types and creates a variety of textile products. As the great majority of such products are coloured, predominantly using aqueous dyeing processes, the coloration of textiles is a large-scale global business in which complex procedures are used to apply different types of dye to the various types of textile material. The development of such dyeing processes is the result of substantial research activity, undertaken over many decades, into the physico-chemical aspects of dye adsorption and the establishment of ‘dyeing theory’, which seeks to describe the mechanism by which dyes interact with textile fibres. Physico-Chemical Aspects of Textile Coloration provides a comprehensive treatment of the physical chemistry involved in the dyeing of the major types of natural, man-made and synthetic fibres with the principal types of dye. The book covers: fundamental aspects of the physical and chemical structure of both fibres and dyes, together with the structure and properties of water, in relation to dyeing; dyeing as an area of study as well as the terminology employed in dyeing technology and science; contemporary views of intermolecular forces and the nature of the interactions that can occur between dyes and fibres at a molecular level; fundamental principles involved in dyeing theory, as represented by the thermodynamics and kinetics of dye sorption; detailed accounts of the mechanism of dyeing that applies to cotton (and other cellulosic fibres), polyester, polyamide, wool, polyacrylonitrile and silk fibres; non-aqueous dyeing, as represented by the use of air, organic solvents and supercritical CO2 fluid as alternatives to water as application medium. The up-to-date text is supported by a large number of tables, figures and illustrations as well as footnotes and widespread use of references to published work. The book is essential reading for students, teachers, researchers and professionals involved in textile coloration.
