What sorts of products can you make with the different types of Nylon products that provide to our clients?

As a country, we’ve moved a long way from only using Nylon to make toothbrush bristles, and nylon stockings or tights. However, Nylon really became famous for providing an alternative to the pesky, irritating wool tights that were the common material used for stockings and other fashions just after WWI. Ladies were so tired of their wool stockings that they literally raced to the stores to buy Nylon stockings when WWII threatened the supply of Nylon stockings made by the Dupont company.

Today, Nylon products are cut and sold to various clients across many different industries and manufacturing areas. For instance, products such as sleeping bags, rope, seat belts in cars, parachuting material, tubing hose, tarpaulin and dental floss may be made of Nylon.

Nylon is arguably the most versatile material available for applications. It can be molded or used to create fibers for making synthetic fabrics that are used in clothing, automobile interiors, and so many other uses. We are constantly surrounded by Nylon related products without realizing it in our day to day. They are used for so many different products and uses it would be nearly impossible to separate yourself from Nylon. This is evidence of just how versatile this polymer truly is.

In fact, according to a page on Quora.com in which Jeremy Timlin, a materials manager, discussed Nylon’s uses, “Nylon accounts for approximately 12% of manufactured synthetic fibers in the world.”
