Academic text with an emphasis on science. "The primary aim of this book is to present the major textile fibers, their structural, physical, chemical, and end-use properties. Chemical and polymeric finishes applied to textile fibers are discussed, since finished affect the ultimate properties of fibers. Dyes are also included, since dyes are color finishes for fibers. The maintenance of textile fibers is presented because of its great importance to the consumer. The methods used to characterize the physical, chemical, and end-use properties of textile fibers are discussed." -Preface.
