Summary and Info
The action of friction in fibers and textiles plays a major role in product performance, from the generation of the fiber through to the various ways a garment responds to wear. Friction in Textiles addresses both the beneficial and detrimental processes of friction with chapters on fiber structure, the sources of friction, measurement techniques, static electrification, shrink proofing and felting, surface modification treatments, effects of friction on synthetic and natural fibers and fabrics, and the role friction plays in textile processing. It also covers the structure and morphology of fibers and includes a historical perspective and future outlook of these studies.
