Nylon is the first synthetic fiber to appear in the world, and nylon is a term for polyamide fiber.
The emergence of nylon has given a new look to textiles. Its synthesis is a major breakthrough in the synthetic fiber industry and a very important milestone in polymer chemistry.
Polyamide, commonly known as nylon, or PA for short, is the general term for thermoplastic resins containing repeating amide groups—[NHCO]— on the molecular backbone, including aliphatic PA, aliphatic-aromatic PA and aromatic PA. Among them, aliphatic PA has many varieties, large output and wide application, and its name is determined by the specific carbon number of the synthetic monomer.
Nylon DTY Properties:
The biggest feature of nylon is high strength and good wear resistance.
The shortcomings of nylon are the same as polyester, with poor hygroscopicity and permeability. In a dry environment, nylon is prone to static electricity, and short fiber fabrics are also prone to fluff and pilling. Nylon's heat and light resistance are not good enough, so the ironing temperature should be controlled below 140°C. In addition, nylon has poor shape retention, and clothes made of it are not as stiff as polyester and are easily deformed. But it can be attached to the body and is a good material for making various body-shaped shirts.
The fabric made of nylon FDY feels smooth and soft, and is often used to weave silk fabrics. It has a wide range of uses in clothing and home textiles.
