At Canvas Etc, our coated 70 Denier Coated Ripstop Nylon fabric is used to manufacture a variety of lightweight products. 70 Denier is a urethane-coated nylon ripstop fabric with excellent water repellent properties. It is made from 70 denier yarn, 100 percent nylon ripstop weave. Though it is a durable fabric, it is not suggested for heavy-duty products that are used outdoors.
This ripstop nylon fabric contains a UV inhibitor that makes this fabric good for some outdoor applications, but like many fabrics, will fade over time. However, it will outlast some standard 1.9 oz ripstop fabrics. For more heavy-duty applications use our heavier denier nylon and polyester fabrics. 1000 denier nylon, 420 Denier Nylon Packcloth, Solution dyed polyester are some such examples.
Ripstop nylon is a synthetic fabric woven in three dimensions. This makes this fabric material resistant to tears. Initially developed during World War II, it was an ideal alternative to an expensive silk and was used primarily as a material for military parachutes. Today, ripstop nylon is still used for parachutes, but even more applications as it gained in popularity and utility! In fact, it is used as boat sails, hot air balloons, flags, banners and kites, and in numerous pieces for backpacking. Camping equipment, such as tents and sleeping bags, are commonly manufactured with ripstop nylon. The nylon is quite slick and durable.
