Advances in Functional and Protective Textiles explores the latest research in uses of textile materials for protective clothing. The book's international roster of researchers in industry and academia describe innovative applications in defense, medical, sports, fire protection, radiation protection, and more. This book will also be an invaluable resource for all readers seeking to produce textiles with self-cleaning, antimicrobial, super-hydrophobic, UV-protective, insect repellant, flame retardant, or anti-felting properties among others.
Particular attention is given to textile fibres such as cotton, wool, viscose, linen and other synthetic fibres whose properties solve many problems in protective clothing. Sustainable approaches to processing of textiles for protective properties are also addressed, as are the hazards involved.
- Introduces advanced testing and modelling methods necessary for the production of protective textiles
- Describes the properties of the latest advanced chemicals and materials used to make protective textiles and clothing
- Covers every step in developing protective clothing, from the engineering of novel materials, to advanced fabrication methodologies, to current and emerging applications
