Nylon Fibers

Due to their many excellent characteristics, nylons are not only manufactured as fibers, but also as powders, sheets, sprays, and coatings, greatly expanding their practical usage. However, many people are less familiar with such various forms of nylons because they are often marketed under a variety of trade names, such as Kevlar, Orlon, and Caprolan. Some of the less well-known products that are frequently composed of nylons include tires, wire casings, netting, bearings, and rope.
