Cordura has developed a range of fibers designed primarily for the development of durable high viscose knitted and woven fabrics. These will be showcased at Techtextil, Germany, May 4 to 7, 2015. The high tenacity polyester fiber range is air-jet textured for enhanced abrasion resistance and tensile and tear strength.
Finished Cordura fabrics made using these qualifying fibers can be printed, laminated or used in uncoated forms and are suited for products such as outdoor clothing, high performance sportswear and safety footwear. The fabric collection features a range of rugged, comfort flex solutions. Cordura Classic 500D nylon 6,6 fabrics combine excellent abrasion resistance with the stretch recovery performance of lycra fiber and find application in high performance apparel such as work wear reinforcement and motorcycle garments.
The Nyco fabric is based on an intimate blend of cotton and Invista’s T420 nylon 6.6 fiber. It offers comfortable durability in military and tactical uniforms while providing abrasion resistance and no melt no drip thermal protective performance.
For more than 45 years, Cordura fabrics have provided enhanced protection, durability, and comfort. The goal is to help provide high performance, protective solutions that inspire designers and product developers to create functional solutions for their customers.
