Polyamide is a family of synthetic polymers, of which the first member - polyamide 6,6 - was synthesized in 1935 by Wallace Carothers at Du Pont. Polyamide is present in various types, including polyamide 6 and polyamide 10,10 and is used in many sectors of the textile industry thanks to its superior characteristics to other fibers.
The number following the word "polyamide" indicates the number of carbon atoms in the component of the elementary molecule. Not to mention that polyamide can be transformed into yarns with different amounts of filament, thus affecting the transparency and softness of the finished product.
Polyamide is available in different finishes, from super-gloss to super-matte, and can be used to create fabrics for clothing, upholstery and industrial fabrics. Due to its properties, polyamide is a reliable and versatile choice for many textile applications.
