Regenerated Cellulose Fibres book cover

Regenerated Cellulose Fibres

This is a comprehensive work by industrial and academic specialists proving up-to-date information on the chemistry, physics, process technology, applications and markets for man-made cellulosic fibres. It covers the properties and applications of viscose rayon, cupprammonium rayon and the new solvent-spun fibres as well as considering their relationships with the natural cellulosics such as cotton and the synthetic polymer fibres such as polyester.

This overview of the only truly, naturally recyclable fibres and the latest manufacturing techniques that are being developed to produce them will be of interest to professionals in textile production, research and development, manufacturing chemists and textile technologists.

The nonwovens and paper industries that use cellulose as a basic ingredient of their products will also find it valuable as will medical textiles producers and geotextiles engineers.
