In today's world, mountain climbing has become a popular sports activity.
To climb such high mountains, people use ropes made of nylon.
This is because nylon fibres are stronger than steel.
Nylon is one of the most used synthetic fibre in our daily life.
Coal, air, water are the raw materials for the manufacture of nylon.
The raw materials are further processed to obtain chemicals, which in turn are used in nylon manufacture.
Nylon is the first fully synthetic fibre ever produced.
Let us learn about the advantages of Nylon
It is durable as it has high tensile strength
It is light in weight and easy to wash
It is highly resistant to insects and fungi.
Moreover it dries quickly and retains its shape
Due to high strength and toughness, nylon is widely used for making fishing nets
And it is commonly used to make ropes for rock climbing
By looking at its advantages and role in daily life, we can say nylon is an important synthetic fibre
Nylon is often mixed with other fibres
Nylon is often mixed with wool to increase its strength.
Let us learn about the disadvantages of nylon
The fibre melts when exposed to high heat
Nylon has poor resistance to sunlight which causes discomfort when we wear it
And extensive washing and drying of nylon can lead to piling.
Nylon is the first fully synthetic fibre
Nylon has high strength and toughness
Nylon is often mixed with wool to increase its strength
The fabric melts when exposed to high heat and uncomfortable to wear next to skin
