Caption

False colour scanning electron micrograph (cross section) of a hooks and loops fastener. It is a nylon material manufactured in two separate pieces, one with a hooked surface (bottom) and the other with a smooth surface made up of loops (top). The loops (smooth surface) are loosely woven strands in an otherwise tight weave (top surface). The hooks (bottom) are woven into the fabric and them cut. When the two surfaces are brought together they form a strong bond. Magnification: x3. Original is bland and white print H110/0053.
