Nylon is a man-made fibre, also known as polyamide. Nylon is durable, lightweight and resilient. Nylon was the first completely synthetic fiber developed. Known for its high strength and excellent resilience, nylon has superior abrasion resistance and high flexibility.

_Thiman-made, synthetic fiber is very strong and is resistant to both abrasion and damage from many chemicals. It is elastic, easy to wash and is quite lustrous. It returns easily to its original shape and is non-absorbent. It is fast drying, resistant to some dyes, and resistant to moths and other insects, water, perspiration and standard dry-cleaning agents.

Nylon is used to manufacture women's hosiery like stocking and tights, knitted or woven lingerie, socks and sweaters, rugs and carpets, tents, sleeping bags, duffle bags, sails, tire cord, machine belting, filter netting, fish nets, laminates, and ropes.
