At Techtextil, C.F. Weber, now the first German company and long-standing authorized mill partner of the Cordura brand, will present the first fabric samples made of Cordura re/cor Recycled Nylon 6,6 (RN66).
Initially, the new fabric will be launched in the color black and in three different weave types.
In terms of quantifiable benefits versus Virgin Nylon 6,6 the production of Cordura re/cor RN66 produces 83% fewer greenhouse gas emissions consumes 82% less energy, and uses 57% less water. Cordura re/cor RN66 is made from 100% pre-consumer fiber material that is 100% GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified.
“We are very pleased to bring this exciting new technology with C.F. Weber to market just a few months after launching CORDURA re/cor Recycled Nylon 6,6 (RN66). These first fabrics are proof that we have succeeded in developing an innovation that our customers and partners have been asking for,” says Malayka Erpen, Cordura Business Development Director EMEA.
