- Nylon 6 also known as Polyamide, is characterized by a combination of high strength, toughness and abrasion resistance and is ranked as an Engineering Plastic.
- This is because of its unique balance of mechanical, thermal, frictional and chemical properties.
- Nylon behaves in a predictable, reproducible manner under load and in known environments.
- Nylon 6 is used as thread in bristles for toothbrushes, surgical sutures, and strings for acoustic and classical musical instruments, including guitars, sitars, violins, violas, and cellos.
