What is nylon?
Nylon is a generic term for a family of synthetic polymers based on aliphatic or semi-aromatic polyamides. With nylon you can because of its thermoplastic silky material shape it, change the fibers and so on by melt-processed.
It all began in 1930, when DuPont started his research project. On February 28, 1935 produced Wallace Carothers the first example of nylon (nylon 6,6) by using diamines. Wallace Carothers did his research at the DuPont facility at the DuPont Experimental Station. On January 29, 1938 there was a response to to Carothers’ work. The scientist, Paul Schlack at IG Farben, developed nylon 6, a different formulation based on caprolactam.
In 1938 the first commercial use of nylon was happen. It was used in a nylon-bristled toothbrush and in 1939; it was followed more famously in women’s stockings or “nylons” which were shown at the New York World’s Fair. All nylon production was diverted to the military for use in parachutes and parachute cord in 1940 – 1945 because of World War II.
Today nylon is among other things used for nylon sport nettings manufactured by Netmark. The Danish net and twine company manufactures a range of other netting types suitable for sport, safety and other industries, but nylon is often used.
What is Dyneema® fibers?
Dyneema® is an Ultra-High Molecular Weight Polyethylene (UHMWPE) that is very strong. Dyneema® comes in: fiber, tape, fabric, and unidirectional sheets. Dyneemas® extreme strength and low weight make it ideal for use in a wide and growing range of applications. Netmark gets it raw materials from DSM in Netherland.

What is Polyethylene?
Polyethylene also known as polythene or PE, is a common plastic which has a global production on appx. 80 million tonnes per year. Polyethylene is used in a wide variety of applications. Some of these applications can be:
- Plastic bags
- Plastic films
- Containers including bottles
In 1898, the German chemist Hans Von Pechmann prepared polyethylene (PE) by accident. He was investigating diazomethane but instead he created polyethylene. The breakthrough mark in the commercial production of polyethylene began in 1951 by Robert Banks and J. Paul Hogan. The commercial production was used for the development of catalyst that promotes polymerization at mild temperatures and pressures.
