Kevlar, a trademark of para-aramid synthetic fiber, is related to other aramids such as Nomex and Technora. DuPont developed Kevlar in 1965 and was first commercially used in the 1970s as a replacement for steel in racing tires. Its normal form is as a rope or a sheet of fabric that can be used as an ingredient in composite material components. Kevlar is used in bicycle tires, racing sails, and body armor due to its high tensile strength-to-weight ratio. Twaron, produced in 1978, is a...

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...
