The surface of textiles offers an important platform
for functional modifications in order to meet special requirements for a variety
of applications. The surface modification of textiles may be achieved by various
techniques ranging from traditional solution treatment to biological approaches.
This book reviews fundamental issues relating to textile surfaces and their
characterisation and explores the exciting opportunities for surface
modification of a range of different textiles.
review some important surface modification techniques employed for improved
functional behaviour of textiles and the various surface characterisation
methods available. Further chapters examine the different types of surface
modification suitable for textiles, ranging from the use of plasma treatments
and physical vapour deposition to the use of nanoparticles. Concluding chapters
discuss surface modification strategies for various applications of textiles.
Surface modification of textiles is a valuable resource for
chemists, surface scientists, textile technologists, fibre scientists, textile
engineers and textile students.
