1000 Denier Nylon (Urethane coated fabrics)

Denier is the name given to the width and thickness of the fibers that make up fabric like nylon. 1000 denier nylon is a very durable, heavy, and finely woven fabric suitable for a range of purposes. From outdoor gear, tote bags, raincoats, luggage, horse blankets, and so forth. Typically, it is made from tenacity nylon yarn and is usually coated with polyurethane to make it water-resistant. 

1000 Denier Nylon Origination 

Denier nylon’s history goes all the way back to the development of the first nylon fabric that was termed as a synthetic thermoplastic polymer in the 1920s by the company DuPont. Nylon itself was very quickly made commercially available for everything from stocking to parachutes. Originally DuPont named the fabric as a type of rayon, suitable for tires and other military applications in World War II. By the 1970s the denier nylon Cordura fabric was being manufactured and dyed by a number of companies that found endless uses for it, the most notable being outdoor gear and luggage materials. There has been an enduring huge market for denier fabric as it has extremely strong fibers and is both water and flame resistant. 

Why 1000 Denier Nylon?

One of the many traits of 1000 denier nylon is its extreme durability and longevity. This synthetic high-quality fabric is meant to endure any environmental condition or roughness of use. It is also very water repellent and resistant up to a certain level making it perfect for rough outdoor use.

As one of the most versatile and useful fabrics, it can be used for luggage, clothes, tents, and all manner of products and gear. It has innumerable commercial applications due to its high tensile fibers.

1000 denier nylon is largely flame resistant making it ideal for use in environments where flammability is a concern.

It is also very easy to wash as well as spot clean. And it dries very quickly making it ideal for activities on the go such as hiking, camping, and trekking.

What Is 1000 Denier Nylon Used For?

Denier fabric has a plethora of uses both personal and commercial and it is actually found in many everyday items!

Is 1000D Nylon Fabric Waterproof?

The 1000D nylon fabric is very non-porous and waterproof due to its polyurethane covering that allows the water to just roll off the surface without getting absorbed. It has a water-repellent finish and texture allowing it to be an indispensable companion in harsh, outdoor conditions.

How Strong Is It?

Denier fabric is an extremely strong fabric due to its polyurethane coating. Other factors such as the denseness of its weave and the considerable thickness and width of each individual fiber also add to the strength. This type of nylon has a history of use for military gear such as jackets, boots, and weapon holders as well as for ballistic jackets and gear. 1000D nylon can come coated and uncoated but both varieties are densely woven, super sturdy, and entirely tear-resistant. It is worth noting that 1000D nylon has up to 3 times the durability of the strongest polyester fabric.

 1000 Denier Nylon Work for Home (FOR DIY projects)

1000D nylon can come in handy for DIY projects as well as for enthusiasts of arts and crafts at home. It’s a great fabric to make useful everyday items like bags, pouches, and covers. You can use a regular household sewing machine for sewing the dense 1000D nylon fabric but you need the right needle (a denim or canvas style needle) and the right thick thread (bonded nylon thread) for the purpose that can be purchased from a craft store.

Remember you can only do fairly simplistic designs with this fabric at home as a regular sewing machine (as opposed to an industrial one) won’t be able to penetrate and sew multiple layers of textured nylon. Make first aid kits, pouches, tactical waist bags, cross-body bags, large tote bags, and even appliance covers as your next DIY project over the weekend. Canwil Textiles can take on your larger projects and do the sewing for you.
