Cordura® 500D Mil-Spec Black 60" Fabric
Cordura® 500D Mil-Spec Black is the industry-leading material when you need guaranteed performance in demanding environments. This 500 denier fabric is constructed using high-tenacity air-jet textured nylon from INVISTA™. After the nylon fibers are woven, they're then coated in both a clear polyurethane (back side) and a durable water-repellent finish (front side) to create a rugged material that is strong, versatile, quick drying and easy to clean. You can distinguish the front of the fabric as it will have a rougher, shine-free finish compared to the sleek shine on the back side.
Cordura is resistant to fading, abrasion, rot and mildew. Because of its great abrasion resistance and tear strength, Cordura is a clear choice for applications such as outdoor/military gear, duffle bags, backpacks, briefcases, wallets, protective outerwear, soft-sided luggage, pet beds and much more! This fabric is tough while still remaining easy to sew.
Because it is solution-dyed, this Cordura will better resist fading from UV rays. It's made in the USA (Berry Compliant) and meets all the requirements for military specifications (DTL-32439A). This fabric is specifically tested for colorfastness, breaking strength, tear strength, water repellency, color and more in order to meet military standards.
Note: The term denier refers to the fiber thickness of individual threads or filaments used in the creation of textiles and fabrics. Fabrics with a high denier count tend to be thick, sturdy and durable.
