Ballistic Nylon

Ballistic nylon is a synthetic nylon fabric. Used in the manufacture  of a variety of items, including tool belts, jackets, protective curtains, and other items for use in industrial applications. It can also be used in conjunction with Kevlar to manufacture bullet-proof vests. The material is woven from nylon yarns of various denier (weight), with the double weave 1050 denier fabric being most durable for its weight level. It is resistant to abrasion and tearing, and is backed with polyurethane (which aids in waterproofing), making it the perfect fabric for protective applications.
