Ballistic nylon provides versatile design options

News | April 1, 2009 | By:

Problem: Manufacturers want an environmentally responsible performance, ballistic nylon with plenty of color and design options.

Solution: NüWash® is a proprietary hybrid fiber design that offers a unique finish on performance ballistics nylon in heavier weights that are suitable for luggage, backpacks, shoes, river gear, sailing equipment or other heavy-duty applications. The stonewashed appearance in denim, heather, straw mat or tatami is achieved by an intermixing of fibers that react differently to the dyestuffs. NüWa® Textiles engineered the dying process using its protocol of sustainable manufacturing practices, and the fiber is made in part from recycled materials.
