Celebrating 80 years of nylon production

When the world’s first nylon manufacturing plant in Seaford, Delaware, started production on Dec. 12, 1939, there were only a few applications. As the site celebrates this 80-year milestone, nylon 6,6 is used in everything from under-the-hood car parts to carpets and air bags.
 
Through science and innovation, end-use applications for nylon 6,6 continue to grow!
