Next generation of durable colors.
CORDURA® TrueLock™ Fabric is engineered with high-tenacity nylon 6,6 multi-filament fiber that locks in the color at the molten polymer extrusion level to create deep, durable color throughout the entire fiber structure. CORDURA® TrueLock™ Fabric has excellent color fastness, UV-fade and abrasion resistance, extended UV strength stability, and long-lasting color vibrancy.
The fabric also delivers additional tangible benefits, including:
- Excellent resistance to abrasion, tear, and tensile strength
- Lot-to-lot and multi-component color consistency
- Locked in color – resists “frosting” under abrasion
- Dull Matte – non-shiny appearance
- Inherent low NIR reflectance capability
- Resists color loss after UV exposure or washing
- Retains strength after extended UV exposure
- 100% high tenacity nylon 6,6 filament fiber
Additionally, compared to conventional level acid Piece dyeing to SDN, the process used to make CORDURA® TrueLock™ Fabric uses less water, and energy and emits fewer greenhouse gases*.

“Throughout our 55-year brand journey, we’ve worked to establish a foundation built on durable and long-lasting fiber technologies, including our legacy of solution-dyed, high-performance nylon 6,6 offerings. As we advance on this journey, we continue to invest and expand our capabilities to include solutions that are not only durable but step lighter on the path to sustainability”, explains Malayka Erpen, Global Consumer Segment leader of CORDURA® Brand.
“Navy Blue is one of the most commonly used colors in law enforcement, workwear, and outdoor applications. This new addition to the CORDURA® Truelock™ Fabric portfolio offers shade uniformity across the components of apparel and gear, and is durable enough to stay true after exposure to the elements and intense military/outdoor missions”, Malayka Erpen, continues.
