CORDURA® Brand Introduces Protective

INVISTA’s CORDURA® brand has broadened its portfolio of protective performance fabric technologies suitable for today’s workwear environments. The latest innovations were on display at A+A Show, ranging from Flame Retardant solutions featuring CORDURA® fabric technology for enhanced durability to specialist stretch materials for garment reinforcement. These innovations support the brand’s commitment to developing durable fiber and fabric technologies designed to help people “Live Durable™”.

“In a work environment, fit for purpose requirements dictate the functionality of the garment, but worker comfort should not be ignored” said Cindy McNaull, global CORDURA® brand and marketing director. “Finding next generation solutions for today’s workers, we believe, means looking at how to increase the comfort quotient and functionality of textile technologies without compromising on the durability or protection required. In collaboration with our strong mill partners, we are dedicated to developing cutting edge solutions that power the work and protectivewear of the future.”
