There are several types of “nylon” polymers. The most widely utilized polyamides in commerce are type nylon 66 and nylon 6. Nylon-6.6 fibre is spun from polyhexamethylene adipamide, a polyamide made by condensation of hexamethylene diamine and adipic acid.

Nylon 66 is frequently used when high mechanical strength, rigidity, good stability under heat and/or chemical resistance are required. It is used in fibers for textiles and carpets and molded parts. It is also used as zip ties, conveyor belts, hoses etc. Nylon 66 is also a popular guitar nut material. Manufacturing flow chart of Nylon 66 fiber is given below.
