Acrylic fibres also have uses in home furnishings and bedding such as carpets, upholstery, cushions and blankets. Acrylic fibres contain at least 85% of the acrylonitrile monomer Acrylonitrile is used to produce adiponitrile, which is an intermediate in the manufacture of nylon 6,6 polymers. ACN produces acrylamide, which can make a variety of homopolymers and copolymers. These polymers are used as flocculants in water and waste treatment, Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) is the precursor for carbon fibre in high strength applications ranging from aircraft parts to sporting equipment. Acrylonitrile (ACN) is used mainly as a monomer or comonomer in the production of synthetic fibres, plastics and elastomers. acrylonitrile-butadiene-styrene (ABS)/styrene-acrylonitrile (SAN) market. ABS and SAN resins are positioned between the commodity and engineering polymers leading to competition with other polymers such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polystyrene (PS).
