Nylon, a synthetic polymer, was first produced by Wallace Carothers in 1935. It is one of the most commonly used polymers. The thermoplastic, silky material was first used in a nylon-bristled toothbrush, then women's stockings. Nylon was made of repeating units linked by amide bonds and is frequently referred to as ppolyamide (PA). There are two common methods of making nylon for fiber applications. It was the first commercially successful synthetic polymer. It was originally intended...

Quartz is the second most abundant mineral in the Earth's crust. It has a hexagonal crystal structure made of trigonal crystallized silica (silicon dioxide, SiO2), with a hardness of 7 on the Mohs scale. Density is 2.6 g/cm³. The typical shape is a six-sided prism that ends in six-sided pyramids, although these are often distorted, or so massive that only part of the shape is apparent from a mined specimen. Additionally a bed is a common form, particularly for varieties such as amethyst,...

Slate is a fine-grained, homogeneous, sedimentary rock composed of clay or volcanic ash which has been metamorphosed (foliated) in layers (bedded deposits). Slate can be made into roofing shingles ('roofing slates' in the United Kingdom), because it has two lines of breakability: cleavage and grain. This makes it possible to split slate into thin sheets. Slate is mainly composed of quartz and muscovite (a mica), often along with biotite, chlorite, and hematite, or, less frequently,...
