A leading material insights company, Material ConneXion has accepted the Cordura re/cor Recycled Nylon (RN) 66 collection, featuring 10 new fabrics, onto its platform. The polyamide (PA) fabrics, including new Cordura re/cor RN66 footwear styles, will be showcased through both online and physical Material ConneXion libraries in Bangkok/Thailand, Daegu/South Korea, Milan/Italy, Skövde/Sweden, Tokyo/Japan and its headquarters in New York City/USA.
This latest addition to the library of Material ConneXion Inc., New York, NY/USA compliments the ISPO Textrends 2022 and Performance Days / Functional Fabric Fair award wins for the new Cordura re/cor RN66 platform. Including the new fibers allows Material ConneXion to expand its portfolio and offer a wider variety of sustainable, durable, cross-functional fabrics to its audience.
This underscores the focus of Cordura, a brand of Invista S.à.r.l., Wichita, KS/USA, on urging the industry to ‘Expect More, Waste Less’ and spotlights authorized long-standing Cordura mill partners Dong Jin and Tiong Liong Corporations.  
In addition to recognizing 8 innovative Cordura re/cor RN66 styles targeted at the bag/pack, reinforcements and outerwear market from Dong Jin Corp., Los Angeles, CA/USA, the featured collection includes 2 new styles from Tiong Liong Corp. (TLC), Taichung City/Taiwan, highlighting the debut of the Cordura re/cor RN66 fabric collection into the area of footwear.
TLC has been developing functional and environmentally friendly composite footwear materials for over 4 decades. This year brings the addition of Cordura re/cor RN66 into their eco-friendly processing techniques and smart manufacturing. The company developed 2 versions of rip-stop wovens:  4-way stretch and non-stretch. Cordura re/cor RN66 fabric technology gives a good combination of sustainability and strength.
Compared to virgin PA 66, the manufacture of Cordura re/cor RN66 produces 83% fewer greenhouse gas emissions, consumes 82% less energy, and uses 57% less water.  The new fiber is made from 100% pre-consumer material that is 100% GRS (Global Recycled Standard) certified.
