Nylon Fabric Product Guide

Nylon is a heavy-duty synthetic fabric that is used for industrial and outdoor applications, such as camping gear, apparel, bags, and covers.

Nylon fabric is differentiated by denier, or weights, that describe the makeup of the material. The thicker the individual threads of fiber used to make the material the higher the denier will be. Our nylon also has a urethane coating that makes it water repellent and tear and abrasion resistant.

No matter the application, nylon makes for a great water and fray resistant material that is both industrial in strength and easy to use.
