Nylon / Polyamide Yarn

"Nylon" is a generic term that designates a group of related chemical compounds classified as polyamides.

 

 













Nylon yarns & fabrics exhibit the following properties:

  • Strength
    Nylon is produced in both regular and high tenacity strengths. Although,one of the lightest textile fibers, it is also one of the strongest. The strength of Nylon will not deteriorate with age making it desirable for sheer hosiery, curtains, blouses, dress fabrics, upholstery and carpets. Nylon, not only has great tensile strength with lightweight, it is also tough and pliable. Nylon also has highest resistance to abrasion of any fiber. It can take a tremendous amount of rubbing, scraping, bending and twisting without breaking down.
  • Elasticity
    Nylon is one of the most elastic fibers that exists today.After being stretched Nylon has a strong natural tendency to return to its original shape.These yarns have given rise to a variety of stretch garments that retain their shape and comfortably conform to the contours of the body.
  • Resilience
    Nylon has excellent resilience;Nylon fabrics retain their smooth appearance. Wrinkles from usual daily activities fall out easily. Pile fabrics such as velvets and carpets keep a neat uncrushed appearance.
  • Drapability
    Fabrics of Nylon filament yarns have excellent drapping qualities.Light-weight sheers may have a flowing quality, medium weight dress fabrics can drape very nicely and heavier weight jacquards also drape well.
  • Lustre
    Nylon has the ability to be very lustrous, semi-lustrous or dull.
  • Easy care & quick dry
    Nylon filament fabrics dry very quickly. They need little or no ironing because garments are usually heat set to retain their shape, pleats or creases.
  • Shrinkage
    Nylon has good dimensional stability and retains its shape after being wet.
  • Highly Resistant
    Nylon bears high resistance to insects, fungi, animals, as well as molds, mildew, rot and many chemicals.
  • Affinity for Dyes
    Nylon 6 has greater affinity for dyes than Nylon66 and can be easily dyed with a wider range of dyes.Both types of Nylon retain their color and have good resistance to fading.
