Nylon is a generic designation for a family of synthetic polymers known generically as polyamides, first produced on February 28, 1935, by Wallace Carothers at DuPont’s research facility at the DuPont Experimental Station.
Nylon is one of the most commonly used polymers. Nylon is able to build in thick films that produce wear and impact resistant finishes with good chemical resistance.
