History of Nylon fiber
Nylon was the first commercially successful synthetic thermoplastic polymer. DuPont began its research project in 1930. The first example of nylon (nylon 6,6) was produced using diamines on February 28, 1935, by Wallace Carothers at DuPont's research facility at the DuPont Experimental Station. In response to Carothers' work, Paul Schlack at IG Farben developed nylon 6, a different formulation based on caprolactam, on January 29, 1938.
History of Polyester fiber
Polyethylene terephthalate, commonly abbreviated PET, is the most common thermoplastic polymer resin of the polyester family and is used in fibres for clothing. PET was patented in 1941 by John Rex Whinfield, James Tennant Dickson and their employer the Calico Printers' Association of Manchester, England. E. I. DuPont de Nemours in Delaware, USA, first used the trademark Mylar in June 1951 and received registration of it in 1952.
Currently, Tehran Industrial Group is one of the manufacturing units in the field of POY and DTY nylon 6 and polyester fibers in Iran.
