1050 Denier Ballistic Nylon – Black 60″

What is it?

1050 denier ballistic nylon fabric is made from a synthetic fiber called nylon or polyamide. Originally used as flack jackets in World War II, the fabric is referred to as ballistic because it was to deflect or stop shrapnel and debris. As a result, it was primarily worn by airmen, and was never intended to stop a bullet or a shell. Ballistic Nylon, or Nylon in general, has very good resistance to chemicals.

Considered a heavy-weight nylon fabric, 1050 denier ballistic nylon weighs roughly 15 ounces per yard. 1050 denier ballistic nylon is dyed black, and poly-urethane coated on one side while roughly 60″ wide. Nylon in general has high tensile strength and excellent abrasion resistance. Additionally, the poly-urethane coating adds water repellent properties.

The many uses of 1050 denier ballistic nylon fabric include:

  • Luggage
  • Cave backpacks
  • Motorcycle chaps and jackets
  • Kayaks
  • Tool belts
  • Police belts

Another option to consider would be our 1680 ballistic nylon fabric due to its weight and construction.
