Description

The first edition of Handbook of Technical Textiles has been an essential purchase for professionals and researchers in this area since its publication in 2000. With revised and updated coverage, including several new chapters, this revised two volume second edition reviews recent developments and new technologies across the field of technical textiles.

Volume 2 – Technical Textile Applications offers an indispensable guide to established and developing areas in the use of technical textiles. The areas covered include textiles for personal protection and welfare, such as those designed for ballistic protection, personal thermal and fire protection, and medical applications; textiles for industrial, transport and engineering applications, including composite reinforcement and filtration; and the growing area of smart textiles.

Key Features

  • Comprehensive handbook for all aspects of technical textiles
  • Provides updated, detailed coverage of processes, fabric structure, and applications
  • Ideal resource for those interested in high-performance textiles, textile processes, textile processing, and textile applications
  • Many of the original, recognized experts from the first edition update their respective chapters
