Cordura® is the registered trade mark of a certified nylon produced by INVISTA — a thick nylon fabric with a special yarn structure, water-repellent impregnation and polyurethane coating.
The fabric is treated with polyurethane multiple types. As a result the coating is of high quality and durable. Besides, sometimes 10% of cotton is added to the thread. The nap that appears on the surface allows to increase the resistance of fabric to abrasion.
In the manufacture of workwear, it is used to produce reinforcement patches in the areas of most abrasion: near elbows on jacket sleeves, near the knees on trousers and bib overalls.
