Rockywoods is an authorized CORDURA® Nylon Fabric distributor

500 Denier Solution Dyed CORDURA® Nylon fabric is a versatile nylon fabric with more strength and bulk than No. 10 Duck at little more than half the weight. CORDURA® Nylon is a textured nylon for a natural spun-like appearance, with excellent resistance to fading, abrasion, rot and mildew. Quick drying, and highly water repellent. Suggested Uses: Courier bags, insulated food service carriers, gun cases, stuff bags, camera bags, wallets, duffel bags, soft-sided luggage, purses, handbags, horse blankets, police and air and sea rescue supply bags, surfboard/ski carrying bags, sporting goods, dog beds and equipment.

What is TrueLock™?

  • CORDURA TrueLock™ Fabric is solution-dyed, which locks in color at the molten-polymer extrusion level, making it resistant to UV fading and frosting under abrasion for extended color vibrancy.
  • Featuring a non-shiny, matte appearance, CORDURA TrueLock™ Fabric technology not only locks in color, it ensures lot-to-lot and multi-component color consistency from batch to batch.
  • The same UV resistance that benefits color vibrancy also helps CORDURA TrueLock™ Fabric retain its strength after extended UV exposure, so its high-tenacity nylon 6,6 construction holds up over time.
  • Every 250,000 linear meters of fabric made of CORDURA TrueLock™ Fabric can save more than 467,00 liters of water, 408,000 mega joules of energy and 26,845 kilograms of CO2.

    What's the difference?
    • Force Blue uses the Blue 9 TrueLock in the weft (yarns that run the width) and the Black TrueLock in the warp (yarns that run the length).
    • Force Blue is slightly darker than the Blue 9
    • Wide goods like the 500d and 1000d are Force Blue. 
    • Narrow goods like webbing and grosgrain Blue 9.

    Invista's Care Instructions for CORDURA® Nylon fabric

    CORDURA® Nylon fabrics are very durable and you can wash and dry them at home.

    • Apparel: Wash on low temperature setting using mild detergent. Either air dry or dry on low setting. Do not bleach.
    • Fabric softener is not recommended as it affects the function of the water repellent applied to some fabrics, but often times it can diminish a static problem. There are various brands of softeners with different chemistries and some will help static at the expense of water repellency, and others will have no effect on either. No softener will damage the basic fabric and will come off in the next wash
    • Upholstery/Backpacks/Luggage: Soil may be removed with spray cleaner or detergent and water. Do not bleach.
    • Oil or grease should first be treated with a dry cleaning solvent followed by a spray cleaner or detergent and water.

    Some CORDURA Nylon fabrics have a durable water repellent (DWR) finish on the front face of the fabric. The DWR helps the fabric shed water and stains. Over a period of time this DWR finish will wear off and needs to be replenished. If your fabric stops beading water on the front face you can replenish this finish with a protectant called ReviveX® Water Repellent for Outerwear. It comes in a cleaner and spray on form.
