Nylon Bonded Thread
Nylon was developed in the 1930's. Seventy-five years later it is still one the most widely
used synthetic threads in the world. Nylon's high strength-to-size ratio, abrasion
resistance, ease of sewing, and relatively low cost are the key reasons for this success.
Nylon customers consistently get strong durable seams that last "forever'.
No thread is completely chemical resistant. Nylon stands up well to most chemicals. But,
polyester has a slight edge in this area.
Nylon thread tends to stretch about 26%. This means that 12 inches of nylon will stretch
to 15 inches over time. This is usually good because it lets your seams adjust to
movement and changes in temperature. Because nylon stretches, it may not a good choice
for projects involving webbing or hanging things.
