Invista’s Cordura brand has launched its new TrueLock brand fibre at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market (ORSM) event, which is being held from July 23 to 26, 2018, in Denver, US, in booth #54037-UL. A new Wolf Gray colour from the pack of the brand’s next generation of durable colours is being presented at the outdoor industry’s leading tradefair.

Cordura TrueLock fibre is created from Invista nylon 6,6 multi-filament fibre that is solution dyed, locking the colour in at the molten polymer extrusion level to create deep, durable colour throughout the entire fibre structure.

The announcement is a major milestone for Invista’s Camden, S.C. facility, which expanded last year to increase US capacity of high-tenacity, specialty fibres for Cordura fabrics. The Camden investment has accelerated progress in the development of new SDN capabilities - which complement the facility’s existing high tenacity nylon 6,6 filament fibre manufacturing processes. Plans currently being put into action at Camden include expansion of the Cordura TrueLock filament product line to introduce additional standard colours and deniers, as well as the flexibility to work to smaller minimum order quantities and custom colourways.

MMI Textiles, a premier supplier and one-stop shop supplying fabric, webbing, and elastics in the textile marketplace, is the exclusive North American provider of fabrics and webbing made with the new Wolf Gray Cordura TrueLock fibre, now through December 2018. Solution-dyed Cordura TrueLock fibre is also available in six classic colours designed to not fade or diminish over time - desert sand, tan, coyote, ranger green, camo green, and black.

Cordura TrueLock fibre is a key component of the Cordura Cares initiative and aligns with Invista’s efforts to communicate its commitment to conserve resources, reduce emissions, protect the environment and increase the utility and durability of its products, with the end-goal of providing long-term value to its customers and society.

The process of colour encapsulation used in Cordura TrueLock fibre offers several environmental benefits such as reduced water and energy consumption, and reduced dye and chemical usage in textile processing. The fibre also delivers additional tangible benefits, including abrasion resistant colour, UV fade resistant colour, inherent stain resistance, colour that doesn’t bleed or crock, lot-to-lot colour consistency/colour uniformity, colour consistency across different textile components (for example, fabric and webbing), and the option for fibre with inherent Near-Infrared (NIR) capability.
