This book is written in a very readable style. It starts by describing the history of the use of textiles in rubber composites and progresses through the technology of yarn production to the details of fabric construction. The five core fabric materials used in rubber reinforcement are covered, i.e., cotton, rayon, polyester, nylon and aramid. Adhesion of fabrics to the rubber matrix is discussed and tests for measuring adhesion are described. In the second half of the book, specific applications of fabrics in rubber are described in detail: conveyor belting, hose, power transmission belting and coated fabrics in structural applications. There are also short sections on applications such as hovercraft skirts, air brake chamber diaphragms and snowmobile tracks.
