From the utilization of textile waste to the high-tech product - this is how modern nonwovens can best described. Web formation and web bonding processes have recently being enhanced. Nowadays, fibres, granulates, binder and finishing agents are used. This development entails a wider range of applications in the fields of hygiene, medicine, the garment-producing and building industries, interior design as well as further technical uses. This book provides comprehensive information about nonwovens, from the raw material fibres via the manufacturing processes to finishing and to the ready-made product. Nonwoven characteristics and the fields of application are discussed in detail as well as the processes available to test the raw materials, the intermediate and the final products. This book will be the standard reference on nonwovens in the years to come!
An evolution is currently underway in the textile industry and Textile for Industrial Applications is the guidebook for its growth. This industry can be classified into three categories-clothing, home textile, and industrial textile. Industrial textiles, also known as technical textiles, are a part of the industry that is thriving and showing great
Non-woven Fabrics is differentiated text which covers overall stream from raw fibers to final products and includes features of manufacturing and finish process with specialized application end use. Application range of non-woven fabrics is extended to all the industrial fields needless to say apparel, such as ICT (information and communication technology), bio- and medicals, automobiles, architectures, construction and environmental. Every chapter is related to the important and convergent fields with the technical application purpose from downstream to upstream fields. Also, applicability of non-woven fabrics is introduced to be based on the structural analysis of dimensional concept and various non-woven fabrics as a state-of-art embedded convergent material are emphasized in all industry fields by using nanofibers and carbon fibers.
