  NYLON
Thus nylon was introduced to the public by means of women’s hosiery, and became an instant success…the world’s first synthetic fiber and the first fiber developed in the United States.
Nylon was also used to filter blood plasma and as sewing thread for shoes and apparel.
Today nylon is used in a myriad of common items, from seat belts to ski boots, from conveyor belts to tool and appliance handles, from lawn mower blades to ship propellers; umbrellas, paint brushes, hair brush bristles, toothbrush bristles, fishing nets, parachute fabrics, ropes, sails, luggage, backpacks, tents, and sleeping bags are made of nylon.

  Nylon - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Nylon is made of repeating units with amide linkages between them: hence it is frequently referred to as a polyamide.
Most types of nylon are condensation polymers, formed by reacting almost exactly equal parts of a diamine and a dicarboxylic acid, so that peptide bonds form on each end of a given monomer in a process analogous to biological polypeptide formation.
The most common variant is nylon 6,6, also called nylon 66, which refers to the fact that both the diamine (hexamethylene diamine) and the diacid (adipic acid) have 6 carbon backbones.

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.
Nylon is used both alone and in blends with other fibers, where its chief contributions are strength and abrasion resistance.
For the -form of nylon 6, the chains are parallel and the hydrogen bonding is between chains in adjacent sheets.

 Nylon Fiber - Nylon Tow Fiber, Nylon Staple Fiber, Nylon Textile Filament Fiber, Nylon Industrial Filament Fiber, Nylon ...
A manufactured fiber in which the fiber forming substance is a long-chain synthetic polyamide in which less than 85% of the amide-linkages are attached directly (-CO-NH-) to two aliphatic groups.
The resulting nylon is named on the basis of the number of carbon atoms separating the two acid groups and the two amines.
Thus nylon 6,6 which is widely used for fibers is made from adipic acid and hexamethylene diamine.

 Nylon fiber definition for the clothing and textile industry
Nylon is a synthetic polymer, a plastic, invented on February 28, 1935 by Wallace Carothers at the E.I. du Pont de Nemours and Company of Wilmington, Delaware, USA.
Chemically, nylon is a condensation polymer made of repeating units with amide linkages between them: hence it is frequently referred to as a polyamide.
The most common variant is nylon 6,6, also called nylon 66, which refers to the fact that both the diamine and the diacid have 6 carbon backbones.

 History Of Nylon   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-27)
This textile fiber is the first man-made organic textile fiber prepared wholly from new materials from the mineral kingdom.
Nylon is a polyamide, but in 1930 no satisfactory fibers could be produced, and Carothers and Hill soon gave up on polyamide fibers.
Nylon became far and away the biggest money-maker in the history of the Du Pont company, and its success proved so powerful that it soon led the company's executives to derive a new formula for growth.

 FAQ - Nylon Fibers
Nycon nylon fibers have a specific gravity of 1.16, whereas polypropylene fibers have a specific gravity of 0.91.
In general the fiber count for the Nycon RC and MultiMesh are much higher than the polypropylene fibers both monofilament and fibrillated.
The benefit is enhanced hydration of the cement particles within the contact zone with the discrete nylon fibers, which would increase the bond between the mortar and nylon fiber.

 ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE CARPET CHOICES
There are several major methods of recycling: chemical recycling, which involves breaking down the nylon itself to be reprocessed into new carpet fiber; fiberizing, where carpet fibers are harvested and converted into backing, padding, and matting for use in laying new carpet; and mechanical, where carpet fibers are down cycled into different products.
Presently, most recycled nylon comes from post-industrial fiber (waste from extrusion and yarn mills, clean lint and edge trim from finishing lines) but the technology is rapidly improving to convert used nylon fiber into new carpet.
