Penfabric & INVISTA launch new CORDURA NYCO fabrics range
Oct '12
In line with INVISTA’s CORDURA brand team commitment to developing innovative and durable fabrics for the global workwear industry, the team has recently introduced a new range of CORDURA NYCO fabrics to the global workwear market from Penfabric. Penfabric, based in Malaysia, is a well recognised specialist mill in the workwear sector and part of the Toray Group of companies.

The CORDURA NYCO fabric workwear portfolio from Penfabric has been specifically developed to provide exceptional durability and comfort characteristics to  garment designs.

The range currently includes eight fabrics, each in an intimate blend of 75 percent cotton and 25 percent high strength INVISTA T420 nylon 6,6. The fibres are staple in nature and intimately blended in both the warp and weft direction. The Penfabric CORDURA NYCO fabric collection is currently available in twill and canvas constructions with weights of 245g/m2, 325g/m2 and 380g/m2.

“The workwear market has traditionally been serviced by cotton and polyester/cotton fabrics,” said Tim Anson, European CORDURA brand development and end-use marketing manager. 

“The new CORDURA NYCO fabric workwear portfolio from Penfabric offers our brand’s renowned long-lasting durability without compromising comfort, and is the latest example of our commitment to innovation in the workwear market.”

Benefits of the CORDURA NYCO Fabric Workwear range from Penfabric include:

  • Exceptional abrasion resistance – minimum three times that of competitive polyester/cotton workwear fabrics
  • Comfort benefits of a cotton-rich fabric while offering exceptional durability
  • Incorporates Penfabric’s manufacturing and dyeing expertise
  • Excellent dimensional stability – designed to meet ETSA industrial laundry standards
  • Modern and popular appearance
  • Light-weight without compromising on durability

“The CORDURA brand team chose Penfabric for this strategic collaboration due to our global reach and expertise in meeting the challenging technical requirements of the workwear industry,” said H.S. Teh, Penfabric managing director. “We are committed to manufacturing only the most advanced and innovative fabrics. Made with renowned CORDURA NYCO fabric technology, these eight fabrics offer outstanding durability, comfort and reliability. 

"Additionally, we have the ability to produce tailored CORDURA NYCO fabrics in lighter weights, with or without mechanical stretch and to provide a wide array of functional finishes, such as odor control, UV resistance and  wicking treatments.”

Comfortably durable CORDURA NYCO fabrics are suitable for a wide range of garment types such as trousers, jackets, coveralls and bib and braces, and are particularly valuable for harsh working conditions especially in areas where high stress is imparted on the garment
