When put to the test, Cordura® resists tears and abrasions like no other fabric of its kind.
Ounce for ounce, Cordura® is more durable than other fabrics.
Cordura® is :
10x more durable than cotton duck
3X more durable than standard polyester
2x more durable than standard nylon
It's resistant to abrasions, tears, and scuffs--all the qualities you expect from a high performance fabric. So regardless of your activities, you'll benefit from the toughness of Cordura®.
How does Cordura® Measure Up for Abrasion?
Cordura® After 3,000 cycles
Nylon after 1,000 cycles
Cotton after 700 cycles
Polyester after 700 cycles
The fabrics above have been tested by the Modified Wyzenbeck abrasion test.
This is a sandpaper abrasion test measured in cycles.
100% Waterproof Cordura® Nylon is better than Neoprene
Neoprene is waterproof yet it holds water near the surface of the cover giving you a damp place to sit.
Cordura® is 100% water proof, non-porous, and water beads up and rolls off.
Cordura® is also self extinguishing and will not act as an accelerant in a fire.
Cordura® is thin but tuff as nails. This material will give you a perfect fit while retaining the comfort of your original seats.
