Polyamide 6

It is the second most produced fiber.
The starting material of naylon is amino caproic acid with 6 carbons.
This material is polymerised in 260º C under pressure and using as a catalyst of Naylon 6.6 salt.
The polymer of Nylon 6 is formed into the filaments by melting at 220º C .
In 1939, the fibers started to be produced in Germany.

It is used for;
Industrial areas

The upper surface of fiber is straight.
The fibers can be semi-gloss, mate or glossy.

Light weight
Resistant to UV rays
Low electrical conductivity
Resistant to chemicals
Low resistance to sunlight
Resistant to bacteria, fungi and moths
Good resistance to pilling
