Synthetic Fibres and Plastics


Give examples which indicate that nylon fibres are very strong.


The fibre that is prepared by humans through chemical synthesis is called Synthetic fibre. It is also called Man-made fibre or Artificial fibre. For example, nylon is a synthetic fibre.

Nylon is prepared from coal, water, and air. It is a strong fibre that has lustre and elasticity. A nylon thread is stronger than steel wire and is hence used to make parachutes and ropes for rock climbing.
