This book traces how the nature of competition in this sector has evolved during the last two hundred years and how and why the locus of competitive advantage in textiles and apparel has moved from country to country since 1945.
Helping you keep pace with rapid developments in the field, Textile Sizing documents the rapidly changing scenario in textile processing and research in sizing. The authors analyze new fibers, spinning methods, and weaving techniques affecting textile production and studies the impact of fiber properties, yarn quality, sizing processes and materials, and chemical and mechanical phenomena on efficient textile manufacturing and development. Numerous tables dispersed throughout the text provide specific guidance on the wide range of processes involved in textile sizing. Illustrating the necessity and value of sizing techniques in the modern textile industry, this reference helps you Predict the efficiency of their sizing methods Master process controls, warping and sizing operations, and modern instrumentation techniques Analyze developments in draw warping and system sizing for reduction of operating costs Understand the importance of desizing and its effect on size recovery and environmental pollution Study the behavior of the warp during weaving and the structural differences between various yarns Textile Sizing is invaluable for physical, surface, colloid, textile, materials, polymer, plastics, and fiber chemists; industrial, manufacturing, textile, fiber, and composite engineers; and upper-level undergraduate and graduate students in these disciplines.
