I think that 'silnylon' is a fortuitous offshoot of skydiving technology. As I remember some guy, Mike or Dave, years ago affiliated with a parachute manufacturer in Deland Florida added silicone to nylon, during the manufacturing process. This was when we made this in the States. It was marketed as Zero P for zero porosity to enhance glide performance. Since that many old timer skydivers tried to somehow recoat nylon, but it just never would work.
