Coloured SEM of the weave of a nylon stocking

Nylon stocking fibres. Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) of the weave of a nylon stocking (ladies tights). Nylon is a polyamide substance, and the first synthetic fibre ever to be produced. Nylon fibres are stronger and more elastic than silk and are relatively insensitive to moisture and mildew. Nylon is used in the manufacture of textiles (particularly hosiery and woven goods, including carpets), moulded articles and medical sutures. Magnification: x100 at 6x4.5cm size

EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the intricate weave of a nylon stocking, providing a mesmerizing glimpse into the world of synthetic materials. The image, captured using a Coloured Scanning Electron Micrograph (SEM) technique, reveals the remarkable strength and elasticity of nylon fibers. Nylon, being the first-ever synthetic fiber created, revolutionized the textile industry with its superior qualities. In comparison to silk, nylon fibers are not only stronger but also more resistant to moisture and mildew. This makes them ideal for various applications such as hosiery production, woven goods like carpets, molded articles, and even medical sutures. At a magnification of x100 in a 6x4. 5cm size print, this photograph allows us to appreciate the intricate details within each thread that form the fabric's weave pattern. It serves as a reminder of how science has enabled us to manipulate materials at microscopic levels for practical purposes. The Science Photo Library presents this stunning visual representation without any commercial intentions or affiliations with specific brands or companies. Instead, it invites viewers to marvel at the beauty and complexity found within everyday objects we often take for granted—like our clothes—and encourages further exploration into scientific advancements that shape our modern world.
