With about twenty different types of chemical finishes and several thousand finishing agents, chemical finishing professionals require a solid basis of textile chemical knowledge and technical understanding, as well as some practical experience. Chemical Finishing of Textiles fulfills this need by describing all of the important types of chemical finishers and emphasizing the fundamentals rather than specific recipe and procedure proposals . It covers the advantages and disadvantages, application conditions, compatibility and combinability, testing methods, and practical tips of every important type of chemical finish. The text pays particular attention to the interplay between chemical structures and the effects of finishing products.
