Use spunbonded fabrics to create stunning effects that cannot be achieved with any other manmade or natural fibres. Covers a range of exciting fabrics, from Tyvek to Lutradur, plus new fabrics such as Evolon and heat-distressable tissue. Fabrics can be washed, dyed, painted, printed, stitched, burned, fused, foiled, stencilled and slashed to create beautiful and innovative effects. Lutradur and Evolon belong to a category of manmade fabrics called spunbonded textiles. They have been available for a few years, but the explosion of their use in the textile world is very recent. They are spunbound, non-woven polyesters, which are very strong and flexible, but soft to the touch and ideal for textile art. All the different types of spunbonded textiles are covered including Lutradur, Evolon, heat-distressable tissue and some older textiles in this category, such as Tyvek, nappy (diaper) liner and kunin felt. The author introduces a range of simple colouring techniques, from painting and printing to dyeing. The book then guides you through heat-distressing, fusing and soldering techniques for which these spunbonded textiles are perfect. The other popular technique – image transfer – is also made simple with these manmade fabrics. Other techniques explained, step-by-step, include foiling and stamping. An essential book for all textile artists who want new and exciting ideas on how to use these versatile textiles.

Inkjet printing on fabric is a highly popular technique, due not least to the accessibility of the basic materials: desktop PCs and printers. There is strong interest from both textile artists and creative quilters, but the technical equipment can be an obstacle for many practitioners who have little or no IT skills. Inkjet Printing on Fabric will address these issues, and will guide textile practitioners to become confident textile printers, teaching them how to use their IT equipment as a printing tool as well as a design tool. Much of the work featured in this book requires no in-depth specialist skills and highlights taking an experimental approach to using desktop technology, including step-by-step digital imaging techniques, and a demonstration of the use of specialist printing papers and mediums. Embracing technology in textile practice gives endless possibilities for developing new working methods and adapting traditional techniques. Inkjet Printing on Fabric brings these possibilities within the grasp of those with little or no specialist print studio facilities, and means that techniques that were once the domain of professional artists are now accessible to everyone.

Medical textiles are a major growth area within the technical textiles industry and the range of applications continues to grow and increase in diversity with every new development. Recent innovations include novel chitosan-alginate fibres for advanced wound dressings, ultrasonic energy for bleaching cotton medical textiles, durable and rechargeable biocidal textiles, spider silk supportive matrix for cartilage regeneration, barbed bi-directional surgical sutures and intelligent textiles for medical applications. Medical textiles and biomaterials for healthcare is a culmination of the worldwide research into medical textiles and biomaterials. It is divided into eight parts covering the main areas of basic biomaterials, healthcare and hygiene products, infection control and barrier materials, bandaging and pressure garments, woundcare materials, implantable and medical devices and smart technologies. Each part contains a comprehensive overview written by leading experts in the area. The overviews are then followed by a selection of the best papers from the 2003 MEDTEX Conference, hosted by the University of Bolton. It has been extensively edited to produce what is expected to be the leading reference on this subject. Discusses worldwide research into medical textiles and biomaterials Invaluable reference for this developing area of technical textiles A selection of the best papers from the 2003 MEDTEX Conference, hosted by University of Bolton are included

Drawing from the third edition of The Coatings Technology Handbook, this text provides a detailed analysis of the raw materials used in the coatings, adhesives, paints, and inks industries. Coatings Materials and Surface Coatings contains chapters covering the latest polymers, carbon resins, and high-temperature materials used for coatings, adhesives, and varnishes today. Featuring new and updated chapters, this text provides an in-depth examination of raw materials categorized into four types: resins, solvents, pigments, and additives. Concise chapters describe the development, chemical and physical properties, synthesis and polymerization, commercial uses, and other characteristics for each raw material and coating. In addition, the book demonstrates how application methods, environmental factors, and chemical interactions affect each surface coating's performance. Other unique topics include biocides, fluorocarbon resins, vegetable- and protein-based coatings and adhesives, gravure inks, and artists' paints. A comprehensive, yet practical source of reference, Coatings Materials and Surface Coatings provides an excellent foundation for comparing the properties and performance of coatings and choosing suitable materials based on specific service needs and environmental factors.

This book helps readers "understand "how the components of textiles--fiber, yarn, fabric, dye, and finish--contribute to the performance of products for specific end uses. With a focus on the "why" behind the material, it encourages students to understand and predict textile properties and performance. This edition emphasizes the global environment and offers separate chapters in fiber properties; fabrics and structures; and nonwoven fabrics. Finishes are now separated into two chapters (physical/mechanical finishes and chemical finishes) and "Take a Closer" look sections bring an in-depth perspective to select chapter topics.
