Nylon instrumental in new harp string
Evonik Industries and the Chinese filament maker NTEC have jointly developed a monofilament designed for instrument strings. Based on Evonik’s nylon 6,12, the filament offers transparency for clarity and tone and a smooth surface for musician dexterity, Evonik says. The filament was developed for harp strings, the firm adds, but can be used to make strings for other plucked instruments.
