Synthetic polyamide fibres form nylon, a major textile fibre. Synthetic polyamides
are produced by a condensation reaction between small molecules, in which the
linkage of the molecules occurs through the formation of amide groups.

single-component, or SC, fibres and (2) metallic multicomponent, or MC, fibres.

made-fibre production accounted for about 13 percent of the world fibre total.
