Nylon

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.

Revision

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
