From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Cordura® was the registered name of a certified (nylon) fabric from DuPont [1] . Today, it is the registered name of a high-performance Nylon-6,6 product manufactured by Invista, a wholly owned division of Koch Industries, Inc. It is used in a wide range of products from luggage and backpacks to boots, military apparel (such as tactical blade sheaths and ammunition pouches), and performance apparel.

It is designed to be longlasting and resistant to abrasions, tears and scuffs.

As a brand name, Cordura® 55 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. In 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 by Invista with new products applied to an increasing range of items such as:

  • luggage
  • motorcycle clothing
  • kart racing driving suit
  • those demanding abrasion resistance
  • sporting and recreational equipment
  • fall protection
