Riassunto: A variety of textile components are used in cars today, from tires, hoses and belts to carpets, seats and airbags. This new text provides a detailed guide and reference to all automotive textiles and applications, including fibers and fabrics, component design, production and finishing methods, and performance in specific applications. The presentation and content serve the practical information needs of all those involved in the development, design, production, evaluation, and selection of these materials and components.
In addition to thorough coverage of all automotive textile materials and applications, chapters also present current information on several related special topics. Environmental concerns, including recycling, are examined in one chapter. (Health and safety aspects, such as materials flammability, are covered within other chapters.) One chapter examines current developments and trends in automotive textiles that help identify future developments in this applications area. Another chapter provides a detailed guide to information sources in this field.
The text is carefully organized for convenient reference and supplemented with more than 90 photo-graphs, diagrams and other schematics that illustrate production and finishing methods and machinery, materials structure, component design, and applications. The hundreds of references and suggestions for further reading provide an extensive database on the literature of this subject. A glossary provides definitions of words and terms in this field. And a detailed index enables easy look-up of needed information.
This new text and reference provides engineers and other technical personnel involved in automotive textile applications with a convenient one-volume information resource.
