The synthetic fibers of NyconG are made from 100 percent reclaimed nylon.
“The performance is quite similar to virgin products,” says Paul Bracegirdle, Executive VP of Nycon Corporation. “It’s equivalent to fibers made from their pure original form. We had it tested by an independent lab, and the results show compliance with the AC32 requirement for crack control.”
Back when Bracegirdle was trying to determine how to create a greener product, the federal government and nylon manufacturers were trying to come up with a way to increase their recycling efforts. “It was an obvious choice for us to research,” says Bracegirdle.
