CORDURA TPX Fabric and 4EVER Flannel Fabric
"We continue to react to consumer feedback and expand our fabric offerings to add versatility to our portfolio and leading brands’ end-use products," said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand and marketing director. "The addition of CORDURA® TPX fabric provides gear with enhanced durability and a waterproof finish, while the new CORDURA® 4EVERTM Flannel fabric offers a lightweight and comfortable alternative to traditional flannels."
CORDURA® TPX Fabric
CORDURA® TPX fabric is ideal for products in the outdoor and military/tactical industries that need added durability in a lightweight construction. It is also well suited for travel gear like luggage and duffle bags. The fabric is designed to provide enhanced tear strength and abrasion resistance, as well as a waterproof finish.
CORDURA® TPX fabric is available from CORDURA® brand authorized mill Chang Ho in 99g/m2 to 260 g/m2 weights. It Is available in black/orange, navy and gray. However, customers are able to further customize the design using swatches from the production department.
According to Mark Chen, business manager at Chang Ho, "driven by a demand for lighter and lighter weight products, laminates are becoming increasingly popular option for today's clothing and equipment. Another benefit is the ability to combine materials with different characteristics to maximize the advantages of each. So when we were asked often: 'what material is better and stronger than our current CORDURA® bag and pack fabric offerings,' CORDURA® TPX technology was our answer."
CORDURA® TPX fabric will be on display as part of the CORDURA® + Brown Buffalo Capsule Collection - a bag and pack collaboration created for OR Show.
