Nylon Polymer

What is nylon polymer? Where does it come from?

Nylon polymer commonly takes the form of pellets or flakes, which can be melted and shaped for use in plastic applications or extruded as fiber for use in yarn applications, such as apparel, carpet, airbags and outdoor gear. Manufactured from key nylon intermediates, hexamethylene diamine (HMD) and adipic acid, nylon polymer is a high performance material used in plastic and fiber applications that demand exceptional durability, heat-resistance and toughness.
