Textile surfaces offer an important platform for modifications that impart functional properties to textile materials. Nanofinishing technology is a relative newcomer to the established range of textile surface modification techniques, and Nanofinishing of textile materials provides thorough coverage of existing, current and future developments in this field.

Part I covers a wide range of nanofinishing mechanisms for improving the fundamental properties of textiles, such as bleaching, scouring, softening and surface activation. In Part II, the high-performance properties that can be imparted to textiles through the use of nanofinishing are discussed in detail, from conventional attributes such as waterproofing and fire-retardancy, to novel applications including conductivity and magnetism.

With two highly regarded and experienced authors bringing together the latest information on nanofinishing technology, this book makes essential reading for scientific researchers, engineers and R&D professionals working on the development of finishes for improving the properties of textiles.

Key Features

  • Explains nanofinishing mechanisms and processes with a view to their use in developing high-performance apparel and technical textiles
  • Focuses on how nanofinishing can be used to confer important characteristics such as self-cleaning, hydrophobic, hydrophilic, magnetic and conductive attributes, making this essential reading for textile scientists and technicians
  • Explores novel techniques and methods for readers who require cutting-edge knowledge of developments in nanofinishing


Scientific researchers, engineers and R&D professionals working on the development of nanofinishes for improving the properties of high-performance apparel and technical textiles; materials scientists
