This book reviews the different types of spinning techniques for synthetic polymer-based fibers, and issues such as their effect on fiber properties, including melt, dry, wet, and gel spinning. It considers the fundamental structure and properties of fibers that determine their behavior during spinning, and explores how a wide array of spinning techniques can be applied in the textile industry. This collection is an important reference for a wide range of industrial textile technologists, including spinners, fabric and garment manufacturers, and students of textile technology. It is also of great interest to polymer scientists.
