Nylon is made by polymerization of caprolactam. Its abrasion resistance can be called champion among all natural fibers and chemical fibers. Nylon staple fiber is mainly used for blending with wool or other wool-type chemical fibers. In many textiles, nylon is mixed to improve the abrasion resistance. For example, viscose gabardine, viscose vanadium, viscose nylon tweed, viscose and wool three-in-one gabardine, wool viscose navy, etc., are all strong Wear-resistant nylon textiles. In addition, all kinds of nylon stockings, elastic stockings, and nylon stockings are woven with nylon filament. It can also be made into a carpet.

Three categories of nylon fabrics Nylon fiber fabrics can be divided into three categories, pure spinning, blended spinning and interwoven fabrics. Each category contains many varieties.

Nylon pure textiles Various fabrics woven from nylon silk, such as nylon taffeta, nylon crepe, etc. Because it is woven with nylon filament, it has the characteristics of smooth hand feeling, firmness and durability, and moderate price. It also has the shortcomings that the fabric is easy to wrinkle and is not easy to recover. Nylon taffeta is mostly used for light clothing, down jackets or raincoat cloth, while nylon crepe is suitable for summer dresses, spring and autumn sweaters, etc.

Nylon blended and interwoven fabrics The fabrics obtained by blending or interweaving nylon filaments or short fibers with other fibers have the characteristics and strengths of each fiber. Such as viscose/nylon gabardine, which is made by blending 15% nylon and 85% viscose into yarn. It has the warp density twice as large as the weft density, and has the characteristics of thick texture, toughness and durability. The disadvantage is that it is poor in elasticity and easy to wear. Wrinkles, wet strength decreases, and it is easy to sag when worn. In addition, there are sticky/jinfanliding, sticky/brocade/wool tweed and other varieties, all of which are commonly used fabrics.

Product performance of nylon:

Strong, good abrasion resistance, ranking first among all fibers. Its abrasion resistance is 10 times that of cotton fiber, 10 times that of dry viscose fiber, and 140 times that of wet fiber. Therefore, its durability is excellent.

Nylon fabric has excellent elasticity and elastic recovery, but it is easy to deform under a small external force, so its fabric is easy to wrinkle during wearing. Poor ventilation and easy to generate static electricity.

The hygroscopicity of nylon fabric is a better variety among synthetic fiber fabrics, so the clothes made of nylon are more comfortable to wear than polyester garments. It has good resistance to moth and corrosion.

The heat and light resistance are not good enough, and the ironing temperature should be controlled below 140°C. Pay attention to the washing and maintenance conditions during wearing and use, so as not to damage the fabric. Nylon fabric is a light fabric, which is only listed after polypropylene and acrylic fabrics in synthetic fiber fabrics. Therefore, it is suitable for making mountaineering clothes and winter clothing.
