Fibre company Invista has partnered with Taiwan’s Tiong Liong Corporation to expand its Cordura Air Flow Technology (AFT) fabric collection.

The new knit constructions feature improved abrasion and snagging resistance, targeted primarily at outdoor, safety and athletic footwear, said Invista.

It added that the breathable fabrics could also be used in durable mesh applications, such as backpacks, and performance apparel, including motorcycle jackets.

The collection has been expanded to include high-tenacity polyester and nylon 6,6 offerings in a range of knits, which are capable of foam or felt lamination and 3D spacer fabric constructions, particularly suited for sports footwear applications.
