Nylon fiber has a variety of chemical forms, and nylon products on the market have different names and characteristics. Meanwhile, the characteristics of staple nylon and long fiber nylon are quite different. However, various types of lightweight nylon fabric also have some common characteristics: light weight, high strength, very wear-resistant, in addition, elasticity is also quite good, second only to elastic fibers and rubber. Due to these characteristics, nylon fiber is especially suitable for making socks and frivolous fabrics.

Nylon fiber is also quite elastic, so it is not easy to wrinkle, even if some wrinkles occur after wearing or using, it is also easy to smooth. As for appearance and hand feeling, fabrics made of nylon fibers generally have silky luster, but they can also be easily imitated into the appearance and hand feeling of cotton, wool or other fiber fabrics.

Long-fiber nylon cloth with tight woven fabric and light weight is generally impermeable to air, so it is very suitable for making windbreaker or raincoat, but it may also make you feel wet and cold in winter and hot and sticky in summer due to moisture accumulation inside. Staple nylon is used to make sweaters and socks. It is warmer than long-fiber nylon fabric because it can retain heat due to plush. Nylon after processing can be made into very delicate, frivolous and lightweight cloth, which is very breathable and can be used as summer clothes.

Now, some new nylon cloth and nylon fiber processing technologies have been developed to deal with some disadvantages of nylon cloth, such as moisture and comfort. In the meantime, there are several kinds of nylon products that can effectively take away moisture, and fabrics made of nylon microfiber are waterproof, breathable and have very good handfeel. Therefore, compared with the old nylon fabric, the comfort of these fabrics has been greatly improved.
