The first edition of New Fibers was enthusiastically received by a
worldwide audience and this second edition has provided an
opportunity to revise and update its contents and examine new
developments since 1990.
There have been considerable changes in the nature of the fibers
being produced, the production methods and in consumers' values and
expectations. Since 1990, the march of high-tech fibers has
continued, with an ever increasing sub-division to meet specialised
applications, as in high performance, high-function and high-sense
New research and development has produced fibers with high tenacity
and modulus to give the super-fibers now used as industrial
materials. The more aesthetic and comfortable modern lifestyle has
given rise to improved Shin-gosen and it is this springboard that
leads on to 'fibers for the next millennium', the subject of a new
chapter. Another new chapter examines the resurgence of synthetic
cellulosics since 1990, in particular the various solvent-spun
fibers of the Lyocell and Tencell families.
