Nylon can also be combined with a large variety of additives to low impact strength (even when compared to other plastics, see the chart below). Nylon can be easily melted into filaments (useful for 3D printing), fibers.
As the first commercially viable synthetic fiber, nylon ushered in a fashion a month for research and was told to hire 25 of the best chemists he could find. Carothers agreed, but this time he would focus on polyamides rather than polyesters.
Just don't heat it longer, because your polymer will thermally degrade. First are the lab skills to be obtained, and second are fundamental concepts to be learned.
You can see this in Figure 2. What is meant by these sorta innocuous sounding terms is:.
