The first part of the book reviews general requirements of military textiles, including damage resistance, comfort, sweat management, cold-weather conditions and the integration of high-tech materials into uniforms. Part II concentrates on the protective role of military textiles, covering such areas as high-performance ballistic fibres, textiles for chemical and biological protection, camouflage materials and military fabrics for flame protection. The book also reviews the use of non-woven fabrics and new coatings for military applications.
With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Military textiles is a valuable reference for those researching and manufacturing military textiles, as well as those interested in the wider area of textiles for protection.
