     - discusses the advantages and disadvantages of every important type of chemical finish
     - combines technical understanding and practical experience concisely
     - essential tool to assist in the demanding challenge of chemical finishing for textiles

    The role of the textile finisher has become increasingly demanding, and now requires a careful balance between the compatibility of different finishing products and treatments and the application processes used to provide textiles with desirable properties. In one comprehensive book, Chemical finishing of textiles details the fundamentals of final chemical finishing, covering the range of effects that result from the interplay between chemical structures and finishing products.

    After an introductory chapter covering the importance of chemical finishing, the following chapters focus on particular finishing techniques, from softening, easy-care and permanent press, non-slip and soil-release, to flame-retardant, antistatic and antimicrobial. Within each chapter, sections include an introduction, mechanisms, chemistries, applications, evaluations and troubleshooting. The book concludes with a chapter on the future trends in chemical finishing.

    Chemical finishing of textiles is an essential reference for all academic and industrial textile chemists and for those studying textile education programmes.
