In collaboration with Taiwan-based Tiong Liong Corporation, INVISTA’S CORDURA brand team expands its Air Flow Technology (AFT) fabric collection with new knit constructions featuring enhanced abrasion and snagging resistance combined with an excellent strength-to-weight ratio.

Targeted primarily for outdoor, athletic and safety footwear, these highly breathable fabrics are also used in durable mesh applications often found in backpacks, as well as in performance apparel such as motorcycle jackets.

The CORDURA AFT fabric collection has now been expanded to include both high tenacity polyester and nylon 6,6 offerings in a wide array of knits capable of foam or felt lamination and 3D spacer fabric constructions which are particularly suited for sports footwear applications.

CORDURA brand fabrics have a strong legacy in footwear. Abrasion resistant woven CORDURA Classic fabrics have traditionally been targeted for applications such as outer shell fabric systems in military, safety and hiking boots. In the last ten years, innovative warp knitting developments by leading European mills have led to durable, lightweight, highly breathable knit CORDURA AFT fabric solutions being provided particularly for footwear manufacturers.

The latest CORDURA  AFT fabric innovations by Tiong Liong Corporation provide new styling and footwear construction options in polyester and nylon, with the addition of 3D spacer fabric technologies Over the last 45 years, the CORDURA  brand team has strived to bring forth best-in-class durable fabric solutions.

“Our markets continue to demand light, breathable fabric solutions that don’t sacrifice durability, and CORDURA AFT fabric answers that call, particularly for footwear. Ultimately, our aim is to improve the end-user experience by supporting the development of lightweight products designed to withstand extreme conditions.” said Cindy McNaull, CORDURA brand global brand and marketing director. “We are thrilled to collaborate with Tiong Liong, a leader in footwear fabric technologies, on this exciting addition to the CORDURA fabric portfolio.”

The new collection of CORDURA AFT fabrics introduced by Tiong Liong is lightweight, breathable solutions primarily designed for the outer shell footwear market particularly outdoor (hiking/trekking) and athletic footwear.

The collection includes a 150-250 gsm PU coated polyester range for good rigidity and a 200-350 gsm range designed for felt lamination ideal for breathable outer shell fabrics often used in conjunction with inner membrane waterproof boot technologies.

Other authorized mills producing CORDURA  AFT fabrics include Vela Technologies, Italy offering a varied collection of fabric laminate systems; Sitip Industrie Tessile, Italy and Karizma Tekstil Limited in Turkey.
