Practical Dyeing (CD-ROM ONLY)
by James Park and John Shore
Published by the Society of Dyers and Colourists
It is becoming increasingly difficult to source high-quality technical knowledge in the field of textile dyeing, whether in Western countries or the Far East, to where the industry has migrated in recent years. Companies seeking to maintain their position in the market place often desperately need such knowledge so that their directors and employees can run the company with optimum effectiveness and expertise.
This e-book from the Society of Dyers and Colourists has been written to help companies and staff in this competitive environment to gain this essential practical knowledge and apply it to the day- to-day running of the dyehouse. Presented in three parts, it covers the fundamentals of dyeing of every major fibre type, both natural and synthetic, and associated equipment and procedures for the coloration of all important fibre/fabric forms. It also devotes the entire first volume to management topics, an awareness of which is essential for the functioning of a modern dyehouse, such as environmental issues, automation, economics and colour communication.
The authors have spent a lifetime in the textile coloration industry, and have won plaudits for their significant contributions to the technical literature over many years.
