Nylon Webbing Suppliers

Nylon is a versatile fibre often specified for military webbing and is suitable for many other uses.

  • Nylon was the first commercially available synthetic fibre.
  • The strength is high tenacity (Up to 9g/den).
  • Elongation – approximately 20% at break –  more when wet . This means that nylon webbing will extend when put under tension outside.
  • Abrasion – nylon has very good abrasion resistance.
  • Moisture – has a regain of 4-5 % and feels damp quickly
  • Temperature – the melting point is around 250°C and is able to withstand 150°C for many hours (It will discolour). Nylon can cope with low temperature very well (-80°C with no loss of strength).
  • Nylon is difficult to ignite and tightly woven structures do not burn quickly.
  • Excellent resistance to sunlight.
  • Good chemical resistance to dilute acids, decomposes in strong acids. Good resistance to common alkalis.
  • Can be dyed virtually any shade (fastness can be an issue on dark strong shades).
