Invista’s Cordura® Brand Fabrics Featured In Kiplay Workwear

Wichita, Kan.-based Invista — an integrated fibers and polymers manufacturer — reports that
France-based workwear manufacturer Kiplay has selected Cordura® brand fabrics for use in its
Techniforce and Techniprotect garment lines.

Kiplay selected Invista’s Cordura Classic — a high-tenacity, 100-percent nylon, 560-decitex
fabric — to strengthen high wear- and tear-prone areas in its Techniforce garments.
Waterproof-treated panels comprising Cordura fabric also are used to reinforce areas such as the
front of a jacket, shoulder and sleeves of a cardigan, and knees of pants. Cordura Classic fabric
reinforcements may be combined with either polyester/cotton, 100-percent cotton, or Cordura
nylon/cotton (NYCO) base fabrics for various end-uses.

Kiplay chose a 50/50 Cordura NYCO fabric for a three-quarter-length Pecari trouser in its
Techniprotect line.
