Cordura

                   
  Blue Cordura garment

Cordura is the brand name for a collection of fabrics used in a wide array of products including luggage, backpacks, pants, military wear and performance apparel. Cordura fabrics are known for their durability and resistance to abrasions, tears and scuffs.

Originally developed and registered as a trademark by E.I. duPont deNemours and Company (DuPont) in 1929, it is now the property of Invista (a wholly owned subsidiary of Koch Industries, Inc.).[1] Cordura fabrics are made using yarns or fibers from Invista. Fabrics can be made using 100% synthetic fiber or in blends with cotton or other natural fibers.

To use the Cordura brand name, each fabric should be tested and approved by Invista.

Origin of the name Condura:

DuPont originally introduced the fabric as a type of Rayon.[2][3]

  Overview

DuPont originally introduced the fabric as a type of Rayon.[4][5] The product was further developed during World War II and used by the military in tires. In 1966, when new formulations of nylon proved superior, the Cordura brand name was transferred to the nylon product instead. In 1977 researchers discovered a process for dyeing Cordura, which opened a wide variety of commercial applications. By 1979 soft-sided Cordura luggage had captured about 40 percent of the luggage market. Several classic brands that remain popular today continue to use Cordura fabric in their products. Eastpak was the first brand to use Cordura fabric in their packs[6] while JanSport used the canvas-like nylon in their original daypacks in the 1970s and continue to use the fabric today.[7] In the 1980s Manhattan Portage began using 1000D Cordura Nylon in their bags to ensure durability.[8] In the 1990s, European workwear clothing brands adopted the 1000D and 500D fabric for reinforcements. Clothing brands like Snickers use the fabric to help their garments last longer.[9] Cordura is also used today in most mid to higher end textile motorcycle jackets and pants due to its high abrasion resistance. It is found in motorcycle gear made by companies such as Klim, Rukka, MotoPort, Rev'It, Olympia, AeroStich, and Dainese.[10]

Cordura fabrics are available in a wide range of constructions, weights and aesthetics, including versions that are designed especially for tear resistance, color retention, and light-weight durability. There are also baselayer, denim and canvas fabrics that contain blends of Invista 420 nylon 6,6 fiber and cotton, known as Cordura Baselayer, Cordura Denim, and Cordura Duck fabrics respectively.[11] The Cordura Naturalle fabric collection, which is based on full dull yarn technologies, is designed to more closely resemble the look and feel of cotton. Cordura Naturelle fabrics are available in knits and wovens, with and without stretch and specialty laminates and finishes.

Some Cordura fabrics have been designed specifically for military[12] and extended outdoor use.[13] Cordura fabrics have a longstanding military heritage (over 45 years), and many US military fabric specs are based on Cordura brand specifications.

New fabrics continue to be developed under the Cordura brand by Invista for application in an increasing range of items.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
