CORDURA® TRUELOCK™ FABRIC

Eco-friendly fabrics with locked-in color

Engineered with high tenacity nylon 6,6 multi-filament fiber that is solution dyed, locking the color in at the molten polymer extrusion level, CORDURA® TrueLock™ fabric has excellent color fastness, UV-fade and abrasion resistance, extended UV strength stability, and long-lasting color vibrancy. The process used to make CORDURA® TrueLock™ fabric also uses less water, energy and CO2 to help leave a lighter footprint along the path to sustainability.

Characteristics

  • Durable – excellent resistance to abrasion, tear and tensile strength
  • Lot-to-lot & Multi-Component Color Consistency (ex, fabric and webbing)
  • Locked in color – resists ‘frosting’ under abrasion
  • Dull matte non-shiny appearance
  • Inherent IR capability
  • Resists color loss after UV exposure or washing
  • Retains strength after extended UV exposure
  • 100% high tenacity nylon 6,6 filament fiber


WATER
Every 250,000 linear meters of fabric made with CORDURA® TrueLock™ fiber can save over 467,000 liters of water. That’s enough water to quench the thirst of nearly 500 people for a whole year or fill 0.2 Olympic size swimming pools.




ENERGY
Every 250,000 linear meters of fabric made with CORDURA® TrueLock™ fiber can save over 408,000 mega joules of energy. That’s enough energy to power more than 10 households for an entire year or an old school 60-watt light bulb for 216 years.

EMISSIONS
Every 250,000 linear meters of fabric made with traditional piece dyeing emits about 26,845 kgs of CO2. That’s the equivalent of driving a car non-stop for 4.9 years or driving around the world 2.3 times.
