Nylon 66 Yarn (FDY)

Among the family of polymers, Nylon is the most significant one that comes in 66 yarns. Nylon 66 yarn is a type of usually chosen alternative for industrial and clothing fabric sewing with thread features. Besides, Nylon 66 yarn is completely made of 2 monomers including 6 carbon atoms. The exciting features of Nylon 66 yarn are the high-heat absorption with tough material making.

Because of its high melting temperature, Nylon 66 yarn’s heat strength becomes more robust at 180 degrees Celsius. Since Nylon 66 has the most usage in industrial fabrics, the use of extreme heat turns any product into the final product one like the tire cord. Such heat helps to gain enough strength to bring changes in the manufacturing process.

Thanks to the excellent features fabrics made by nylon yarn offer, there is no denying that this can turn out to be a perfect choice for you as a textile manufacturer.

However, before making your final decision, you must know all types of nylon yarns, their uses, and the benefits it has to offer.

For that, you don’t need to look anywhere else, as we have covered all the necessary information for you under one roof.

Introduction of nylon yarn

Nylon masterbatch - the raw material of nylon yarn
Nylon masterbatch – the raw material of nylon yarn

Nylon, chemically known as polyamide (PA) , is the world’s first synthetic fiber. Compared with polyester yarn, nylon yarn has high mechanical strength, excellent moisture absorption and heat resistance, its abrasion resistance is 10 times of cotton yarn, wool yarn 20 times, in addition, nylon yarn density is smaller, 35% lighter than cotton yarn, 25% lighter than viscose yarns. The fabric made of nylon yarn is light and soft, and the skin feels gentle. It is widely used in high-end clothing and special functional clothing.

Yarns made using natural fibers such as wool are pretty expensive, especially when it is entirely organic. This is where nylon yarn comes to the rescue. It is designed to imitate the look of wool, cotton, and other natural fibers that too at a lower cost.

So, what exactly is nylon yarn? It is a type of yarn made from a synthetic material called nylon fiber, which resembles the look of many natural yarns. At first, nylon was specially created to substitute silk when it was hard to obtain; however, with time, it is now being used in place of many natural fibers.

The features of nylon yarn (polyamide yarn)

Nylon yarn (polyamide yarn) can be widely used in various industries, mainly because nylon materials have many natural fibers do not have performance advantages. For example, the fabric containing nylon yarn (polyamide yarn) is more wear-resistant, not easy to wear out, because the nylon material friction coefficient is small, wear-resistant. By understanding the performance advantages of nylon, you can better understand why nylon yarns are so widely used.

The features of nylon yarn (polyamide yarn)

Performance advantage

Specific instructions

High mechanical strength, good toughness

Nylon’s tensile strength is higher than that of metal, and its compressive strength is comparable to that of metal, but it is not as rigid as metal. The tensile strength is close to the yield strength, more than double that of ABS. The ability to absorb shock and stress vibration is strong, and the impact strength is much higher than that of ordinary plastics, and is better than that of acetal resin. Therefore, nylon yarns (polyamide yarns) are used in fabrics that require toughness, such as climbing ropes and safety equipment.

Outstanding performance

Common escalator handrails, new bicycle plastic rims and other occasions where periodic fatigue is very obvious are often used in nylon. The same principle applies to the application of nylon threads in tire cord layers.

High softening point, heat resistant

Such as PA46, etc., the heat distortion temperature of high crystalline nylon is high, and it can be used for a long time at 150 degrees.

After the PA66 is reinforced by glass fiber, its heat distortion temperature reaches more than 250 degrees. Therefore, nylon yarn (polyamide yarn) is often used in fabrics used in high temperature environments such as industrial fields or fire clothing.

Small friction coefficient, wear-resistant

Nylon has self-lubricating properties and low noise when used for moving mechanical components. It can be used without lubricant when the friction effect is not too high: if it is really necessary to use lubricant to reduce friction or help dissipate heat, water, oil, grease, etc. can be selected. . Therefore, nylon has a long service life as a transmission component. In the same way, clothes containing nylon yarns also last longer.


Nylon is very resistant to alkalis and most salt solutions, and also resistant to weak acids, engine oils, gasoline, aromatic compounds and general solvents. It can resist the erosion of gasoline, oil, fat, alcohol, weak city, etc., and has the good anti-aging ability. Therefore, nylon yarn has also been used in the chemical industry.

Self-extinguishing, non-toxic, odorless

It is affectionate to biological erosion and has good antibacterial and antifungal abilities.

Excellent electrical performance

Good electrical insulation, nylon has high resistance per unit volume and high breakdown voltage. In a dry environment, it can be used as a power frequency insulating material, and it still has good electrical insulation green even in high humidity environments.

Lightweight, easy to dye, easy to shape

Fast flow due to low melt viscosity. It is easy to fill the mold, the freezing point after filling is high, and the shape can be quickly set, so the molding cycle is short and the production efficiency is high. This is why nylon yarns can be used in home textiles.

  • The nylon yarn has good impact resistance and high strength.
  • It has antistatic properties to meet the requirements of mechanical applications.
  • Nylon yarn has good chemical stability and alkali resistance.
  • It feels very silky with the touch.
  • Provide excellent draping qualities to fabrics.
  • Good elasticity makes it suitable to be used for apparel manufacturing.
  • Prolonged exposure to sunlight may reduce its strength.
  • Light and temperature are the most important factors to take care of when using nylon yarn.

Since you have to make your final decision of using nylon yarn or not, here are its advantages and disadvantages to make your decision easier:


  • The yarns have excellent strength to offer.
  • It comes with significant wear and fatigue resistance.
  • Nylon yarns have great chemical, acid, and alkali resistance.
  • Low density, light fabric weight, and good elasticity are not to be ignored.


  • The Sun resistance of nylon yarns is not good.
  • Yarns can turn yellow when exposed to strong sunlight.
  • Moisture absorption property is not commendable.
  • Allergies to nylon itself are possible.

Types of Nylon Yarn

Unlike other yarns that offer just one variety, nylon yarn has various types that you can select depending on your choice application and requirements. The different types of Nylon yarn include:

1- Nylon Partially Oriented Yarn

Nylon partially oriented yarn (POY) is the first type of Nylon yarn that comes in different lusters like semi-dull, bright, or even black and is made directly from the melt spinning process. This kind of yarn is usually preferred for manufacturing textured yarn, and the end result is preferred due to better drape, softer feel, wrinkle resistance, higher recovery, etc.

2- Nylon Highly Oriented Yarn

This kind of yarn is similar to that of partially oriented yarn; however, the only difference is in the manufacturing process since the nylon HOY is produced through a high-speed spinning process. It gives stabilization and crystallization without the need for a drawing process. Nylon HOY is comparatively brighter and softer and is therefore preferred for clothing and the process of fancy yarn.

3- Nylon Air Textured Yarn

Nylon ATY or Air Textured Yarn is also commonly named spun-like yarn and is obtained when the POY nylon yarn is drawn and texturized in the presence of air in a chamber. The significant properties of this kind of yarn include being wear-resistant, light in weight, and easy to clean, due to which they can be used for sportswear, casual wear, baggage, etc.

4- Nylon Drawn Textured Yarn

Also known as Nylon DTY, this kind of yarn is manufactured from Partially Oriented Yarn through the texturization process, which involves the yarn being simultaneously drawn and twisted. The final outcome of the yarn makes it suitable to be used for warp knitting, circular knitting, dyeing yarn, the process of fancy yarn, etc.

5- Nylon Fully Drawn Yarn

Nylon fully drawn yarn is also named Nylon FDY, Nylon Flat yarn, or Nylon Filament yarn, and by the look of it, you can easily say it is an entire silk stretch. This kind of yarn offers benefits, including toughness, high strength, abrasion, stiffness, chemical resistance, etc. Depending on your end use, it can easily be available in semi-dull, full dull, or bright finishes.
