In line with the CORDURA® brand team’s commitment to developing innovative and protective fabrics for the workwear industry, a new range of CORDURA® NYCO fabrics from Malaysian based Penfabric, part of the Japanese Toray Group of companies, will be introduced to the European workwear market at the A+A show in Dusseldorf, Germany.
The innovative range includes four fabrics, each in a blend of 75 percent cotton, 25 percent high strength INVISTA T420 nylon 6,6. The fibers are intimately blended in both the warp and weft direction, and available in twill and canvas constructions in weights of 325gr/m2 and 380gr/m2. The new fabric offers long-lasting durability without compromising comfort, suitable for a wide range of garment types, especially valuable for harsh working conditions putting high stress on garments.
The CORDURA® NYCO fabric range has a higher percentage of cotton fiber than the established polyester/cotton fabrics with similar weights and constructions, and a high degree of absorption. The fabrics are more cotton-like and less synthetic in touch, adding to the comfort requirement so important in today’s working environments. The canvas fabrics offer a modern and popular appearance in line with casual apparel garments.
