Invista Introduces Improved Cordura® Lite Plus Fabric

Invista, a Wichita, Kan.-based fibers and polymers manufacturer, has introduced an improved Cordura® Lite Plus Fabric for technical packs, daypacks, messenger bags, luggage and other portable items requiring durability.

The fabric is made using the company's highest-tenacity Type 749 nylon 6,6 air bag technology fibers and offers 12-percent greater tensile strength than the current Cordura Lite Plus Fabric, which is made using Type 725 fibers. According to Invista, the new fabric also offers up to twice the filament density and lower denier per filament with a higher weaving coverage factor than the current fabric, thereby offering a smoother, softer and more supple hand; a more tightly woven fabric, minimizing water or air leakage; the ability to achieve equivalent hydrostatic results with less coating; and the ability to be packed or folded to fit a smaller radius or seam.

The improved Cordura Lite Plus Fabric is offered in lightweight rip stop, dobby, plain and ballistic weave constructions; and in several deniers ranging from 210 to 525 denier.
