Introduction to Nylon

Nylon is a polyester fiber with outstanding strength and elasticity. It offers an exceptional strength-to-weight ratio, a smooth surface, and excellent chemical and abrasion resistance. For the finished products, it provides strong tensile and fatigue strength. It can also endure tremendous stress and recover extremely quickly.

Nylon is washable, and various colors can be added for aesthetic purposes. The water resistance of Nylon is very high and does not get affected by most chemicals and oil. Nylon’s exceptional mechanical, chemical, and physical properties make it perfect for various applications, including parts near the engine, toys, tents, ropes, conveyors, seat belts, and clothing.
