Textiles And The Skin
Author: Peter Elsner
Publisher: Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers
Release Date: 2003
Pages: 176
ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Completely new textile technologies have recently been developed with the goal of giving additional functionality to garments. Textiles have been improved to protect against UV radiation and toxic gases or to enhance breathability. In addition, they may have integrated sensors to diagnose medical conditions or may be equipped with carrier molecules to absorb substances from the skin and release therapeutic compounds. At the same time, the awareness of unwanted effects clothing may have on human health has increased. This volume familiarizes the dermatologist, allergologist and occupational physician with what he should know about textiles, and, on the other hand, the textile or chemical engineer with what he should know about the human skin. Further, it is divided into two parts the first of which discusses the functionality of textiles also in medicine, for instance in the prevention of skin infections or wound healing. The last part deals with allergic contact and irritant dermatitis and the risks of possible exposure to hazardous chemical residues in textiles. For the first time the knowledge of textile engineers and dermatologists has been brought together to stimulate a promising interchange.

Biofunctional Textiles And The Skin

Publisher: Karger Medical and Scientific Publishers

Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

In recent years the development of new technologies has permitted the production of 'functional' or 'smart' textiles. These fabrics are capable of sensing changes in environmental conditions or body functions and are adequately responding to them. They are able to absorb substances from the skin or to release therapeutic or cosmetic compounds. For instance, they can be used in underwear with an integrated cardio-online system or as textiles with carrier molecules. The focal point of interest in biofunctional textiles lies currently on the use of textiles supporting therapy and prevention in dermatology. This volume collects information about new trends in the interaction between textiles and the skin, particularly the development of antimicrobial finished textiles. It presents a selection of papers which will contribute to further consolidate the dialogue between dermatologists, allergologists, biomaterial scientists and textile engineers.

ISBN:
Available Language: English, Spanish, And French
EBOOK SYNOPSIS:

Initially written to pull together scattered literature in polymer science and textile technology, the first edition of Coated Textiles: Principles and Applications became a gold standard resource in this field. Completely revised and updated, this second edition reflects not only the latest developments in the field, but also explores future possibilities. The book covers the materials used in coatings and their chemistry, textile substrates, coating methods, properties of fabrics after coating, rheology of coating, applications of coated fabrics, and test methods in chronological order. New topics in the Second Edition: · Coating with stimuli-sensitive polymers and intelligent textiles · Nanomaterial coating to produce soil-resistant fabrics · Breathable coating for health care garments · Adhesives and foam for laminates · Research trends such as temperature-adaptable fabrics, silicone coating for airbag fabrics, healthcare garments, intumescent coating, coating materials, and coating methods The author provides a detailed discussion that includes diverse applications of coated fabrics, rheology, smart coating, physical properties of coated fabrics, as well as the underlying principles of test methods. The book includes applications and explores coating with functional materials such as dyes, fragrances, phase change materials, smart polymers and nanomaterials for special applications. With applications in defense, transportation, healthcare, architecture, space, sports, environmental pollution control, and other diverse end-product uses, coated textiles is a multibillion dollar industry. Following in the footsteps of its bestselling predecessor, the second edition compiles information from various sources into one convenient, easily accessible resource.
