Sialkot, Pakistan (PressExposure) September 08, 2009 -- Today, it is the registered name of a high-performance Nylon-6,6 product CORDURA was the registered name of a certified (nylon) fabric from DuPont.. It is used in a wide range of products from luggage and backpacks to boots, military apparel (such as tactical blade sheaths, ammunition pouches, etc.), and performance apparel.
It is designed to be long-lasting and resistant to abrasions, tears and scuffs. As a brand name, CORDURA reaches back to 1929 as a development of Rayon. The product was further developed during World War II and used by the military in tires. From 1966 when new formulations of nylon proved superior, the CORDURA brand was transferred to the nylon product instead. CORDURA has continued to be developed as a brand with new products applied to an increasing range of items such as: â¢ luggage â¢ motorcycle clothing â¢ anywhere that abrasion resistance is important â¢ sporting and recreational equipment
Cordura is a dense 1000/280 denier weave, but lightweight (about 11 oz. per yard) and breathable. It has excellent resistance to scuffing and pilling under demanding conditions. Its new super-softness makes it comfortable as well as stylish and functional. CORDURA fabric is what the most respected brands, retailers and militaries around the world use when they need to make a product that's durable, versatile and reliable. Constructed using high tenacity fiber technologies, ounce for ounce, CORDURA fabrics are more durable than comparable unbranded fabrics. Fact is, no matter the application, our fabrics are "best-in-class." But more importantly, they have to pass our own stringent test criteria before they can earn the CORDURA brand name. They're available in a wide range of weights - from ultra lightweight to heavy weight. And CORDURA fabrics come in many different constructions and textures. All in all, they're the fabrics that make strong, long-lasting products even tougher in several categories - from outdoor gear and work wear to luggage and upholstery
