Reactive Modification of Fiber Polymer Materials for Textile Applications

  • Chapter
  • First Online:
Reactive and Functional Polymers Volume One

Abstract

Many reactive processes with the purpose of modifying the structure of fiber polymers are applied in textile chemistry in order to change their properties. These processes depend on the chemical nature of the polymer and the type of modification, and these aspects are discussed with respect to alkalization, chemical crosslinking with bi- and multifunctional reagents, hydrolytic processes, deposition and grafting of polymers, as well as crosslinking with urea-based reactive systems (e.g. dry cure processes). The selection of process parameters are of decisive importance for the efficient development of a desired portfolio of properties in a certain fiber-based product. This chapter aims to analyze the recent advances in reactive modification of fiber polymer materials.
