Title: Textile Chemistry


1
Textile Chemistry
  • Hannah Waitkus and Lisa Rhodebeck

2
Career Overview
  • the study of the chemical and physical properties
    of the various textile fibers
  • both natural and synthetic
  • the application of the principles of surface
    chemistry to the many cleaning operations and
    modifications of the textile material
  • the application of organic chemistry to the
    synthesis and formulation of the chemical
    products necessary for achieving these objectives
  • Textile industry is one of the largest industries
    in the United States

3
Job Functions
  • -Textile chemistry is usually divided into three
    major areas
  • dyeing and finishing chemistry
  • fiber and polymer chemistry
  • materials science and involves the blending of
    textile materials

4
Job Functions
  • Technical content tends to be more challenging in
    the polymer chemistry department than in the
    dyeing and finishing end
  • Textile Chemists work in
  • Research Development
  • Process development
  • Process modification
  • Technical services
  • Environmental Testing
  • Dyeing and finishing operations

5
Places of Employment
  • Globally chemical companies that manufacture the
    basic polymer from which synthetic fibers are
    made
  • Because the companies exist globally, many jobs
    are located overseas
  • Small dyeing houses that dye yarns, fiber,
    fabric, and carpets

6
Personal Characteristics
  • Knowledge of Weaving and Knitting
  • Enjoy work with tangible products
  • Versatility
  • Fibers and Chemicals
  • Like using knowledge of materials to solve
    problems
  • Be willing to travel (textiles in other
    countries)

7
Job Outlook
  • Some positions still exist but limited
  • Material Science is offering new opportunities
  • International has a better outlook
  • Textile jobs have moved over seas
  • Dye jobs are more often over seas

8
Education and Training
  • Bachelors degree in Textile Chemistry (not a
    pre.req), your coursework should
  • including classes in polymer and color chemistry,
    the technology of dyeing and finishing, color
    science, textile dyeing and printing, fiber
    forming polymers, polymer chemistry lab and the
    chemistry of synthetic and natural bipolymers.
  • Graduate School M.S. or Ph.D.
  • Trained as Polymer Chemists
  • Understanding the manufacturing process and
    chemical engineering important pre-requisite
