Coated Textiles : Principles and Applications
Gore-Tex®, chemical protective clothing, architectural fabrics, air bags Intensive research and development in coated-fabric materials and processes has led to new and improved products for a wide range of consumer, industrial, medical, and military applications. Coated Textiles: Principles and Applications provides the first comprehensive, up-to-date presentation of this technology and its applications. From coating materials and substrates to coating methods, physical properties, and testing techniques, the author presents detailed examinations of the chemistry, processing, properties, and applications of coated fabrics. He explores the full range of applications, including foul weather clothing, architectural, automotive, and other nonapparel uses, and high-tech applications, such as chemical protective clothing, thermochromic fabrics, camouflage nets, and metal coated fabrics. Worldwide, the production of coated fabrics for defense alone is a multi-billion dollar business, yet the interdisciplinary nature of the field has left the published work scattered throughout the polymer science, textile technology, and chemical engineering literature. Coated Textiles: Principles and Applications offers a unique opportunity to acquire an authoritative, one-stop resource valuable both as a reference and as a stimulus for developing new and improved coated textile products.
