Characteristics and Features
Polyamide is light-weight, but at the same time, a strong fabric. The fibers that are used to make it are smooth and non-absorbent meaning, anything that is made up of polyamide dries up easily and quickly. It is also dirt resistant and is not affected by any chemicals or sweat. But, it melts at high temperature and hence, strict rules should be followed while ironing clothes made up of polyamide. Its chemical chains of amide molecules and the chains are arranged parallel to each other and are attached by hydrogen bonds. A polymerization process takes place that makes nylon fibers strong and since, this is a condensation reaction, no water is retained.
