Review quote

"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
