Nylon, also known as polyamide (PA), is the first fully synthetic fiber ever made. This amazingly versatile material is derived from petrochemicals and is among the most widely used engineered thermoplastics. Nylon synthetic fibers offer several advantages over naturally occurring fibers, including superior strength, light weight, elasticity, toughness, abrasion resistance, washing durability, and water-resistant capabilities. These benefits make nylon synthetic material an ideal choice for a wide range of products that we innately use in our lives each day. Americhem offers a full line of additive technologies instrumental to the property modification of nylon synthetic fiber, allowing manufacturers to achieve significant gains beyond nylon’s core tenacity.

Americhem leverages its expertise as a polymer composites manufacturer and custom masterbatch designer to engineer advanced technologies for nylon synthetic fiber producers. We pioneered the technology used for solution dyeing of nylon fiber, which elevated our position as nylon material specialists. While subjected to continuous improvement, many of the color designs we developed initially are still widely applied in the industry today. Our sustainable approach helps fiber producers reduce their water and energy consumption, leading to increased cost savings and reduced carbon footprints.
Americhem’s product portfolio has a proven track record of superior performance and quality. While our position as an innovator has remained steadfast for decades, we are continually researching and developing new technologies to meet our customers’ evolving needs and preferences. As we look ahead to the future, we remain committed to furthering the science of additives and colorants used in synthetic textiles. Lastly, we are leading the effort to broaden the use of sustainable polymer platforms through collaborative initiatives.
