Nylon Yarn


Nylon was the first truly synthetic fiber to be commercialized. Nylon was developed in the 1930s by scientists at Du Pont, headed by an American chemist Wallace Hume Caruthers. It is a polyamide fiber, derived from a diamine and a dicarboxylic acid, because a variety of diamines and dicarboxylic acids can be produced, there are a very large number of polyamide materials available to produce nylon fibers.

It is a synthetic yarn used widely for commercial purposes due to its tenacity and resilience nature. The count ranges from Ne6 toNe66- single and multifold. The lower range is used for manufacturing of garments and higher end for industrial products.

  • Nylon is used in tire cords and ropes for nets
  • Used in parachutes, belts, and ropes
  • Well used in women’s hosiery, lingerie
  • Used in floor coverings and carpets
  • Used in toothbrush bristles and climbing gear ropes

Strength :- Nylon has good tenacity and the strength is not lost with age. Nylon has a high strength to weight ratio. It is one of the lightest and strongest textile fibres. It is one of the fibres which are added at the points of wear such as knees of jeans and toes and heels of socks. Nylon has excellent abrasion resistance.

Application :- underwear, lingerie, pantyhose, fashion apparel, fitness wears, sportswear, beach shorts, casual jackets

Features :-

  • More toughness due to higher yarn modulus.
  • Softer and better drapery.
  • No crinkle due to good elasticity recovery.
  • Less possible to be crispy due to cold weather resistance.
  • Stable measurement due to higher strength.
  • Higher abrasion resistance.
  • Less yellowish and brighter color due to more heat resistance.
  • Good sweat absorption and ventilation, easy wash and quick dry.
