Advances in Filament Yarn Spinning of Textiles and Polymers (Woodhead Publishing Series in Textiles)by Edited By Dong Zhang.
Synopses & Reviews
Many synthetic fibers are polymer-based, and are produced by a process known as spinning. In the spinning of manufactured filaments, fiber-forming substances are extruded through holes of a spinerette. This book reviews the different types of spinning including melt, dry, wet, and gel spinning as well as bi-component spinning and electrospinning.
Each chapter will explore how spinning can be applied in the textile industry. Part one considers the fundamental structure and properties of fibers that determine their behavior during spinning. Chapter authors then discuss developments in technologies for manufacturing synthetic polymer films to produce different fibers with specialized properties. Part two focuses on spinning techniques, including the benefits and limitations of melt spinning and the use of gel spinning to produce high strength and high elastic fibers and considers developments in bi-component, bi-constituent, and electro- spinning. Final chapters review integrated composite spinning of yarns and the principles of wet and dry spinning.
