Invista Unveils Cordura® Colorlock Fabrics

Wichita, Kan.-based Invista has added Cordura® Colorlock fabrics to its abrasion-resistant Cordura brand portfolio. The fabrics, made using 650- and 1,245-denier nylon yarns solution-dyed using Colorlock fiber technology, are available in more than 200 colors and are stain-resistant, colorfast and durable, the company reports. Invista also offers several of the colors in fabrics comprising 25-percent pre-consumer recycled content.

“At the heart of Cordura Colorblock fabric technology is the same strength and durability you expect from all Cordura fabrics,” said Cindy McNaull, global brand manager, Cordura. “Our fabrics’ inherent durability, coupled with solution-dyed technology that eliminates the dyeing step is testament to our commitment to provide customers and consumers with alternative, innovative fabric and design solutions.”

Invista states there is minimal lot-to-lot dye variation, and the company has a no yarn minimum policy — allowing fabric mills to offer smaller lot sizes to end-product manufacturers.
