The origins of texturing; Scientific and engineering principles in twist-texturing; Scientific and engineering principles in other texturing processes; False-twist process; False-twist textured yarns; BCF processes and yarns; Air-jet texturing and yarns; Quality assurance; Textile yarn logistics; Retrospect and prospect.
Texturing is increasingly important in textile production, not only in yarns for weaving and knitting fashion products, but also for carpets, furnishing fabrics and a variety of technical textiles. This book covers all the major techniques including twist-texturing, jet-screeen texturing, false-twist process, BCF processes and air-jet texturingare in detail. Combining a comprehensive review of the physics and chemistry of texturing with a thorough, illustrated description of current practice, this book is invaluable for yarn and fabric manufacturers, textile scientists and students on textile science and technology courses.
