The Post-it note is a piece of stationery designed for temporarily attaching notes to documents and other surfaces through the use of a strip of adhesive on the back. They are most commonly seen in a 3-inch square and yellow in color although they can come in a variety of shapes, colors, and sizes. A low-tack adhesive allows the notes to be stuck and removed quickly with no residue left behind. Art Fry, of 3M, created the post-it note by using an adhesive developed by a colleague. 3M was...

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...

Registered to W. L. Gore, Gore-Tex is a waterproof/breathable fabric that was co-invented by Wilbert L. Gore and Rowena Taylor. In 1976, Robert Gore was granted a patent for a porous form of polytetrafluoroethylene with a micro-structure characterized by nodes interconnected by fibrils. Gore was inducted into the National Inventors Hall of Fame in 2006. PTFE is created by using an emulsion polymerization process that utilizes the fluorosurfactant PFOA. Gore-Tex materials are typically...

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...
