What is 1680D ballistic nylon?

1680D ballistic nylon is a high-performance and heavy-duty fabric used primarily in the manufacturing of durable and resilient products. Ballistic nylon was originally developed for use in World War II for flak jackets to protect from flying shrapnel and other ballistic impacts.

The "1680D" refers to the denier count, which is a unit of measurement used to indicate the thickness and weight of the fabric.

1680D ballistic nylon vs canvas

1680D ballistic nylon and canvas are both durable fabrics. However, they have some distinct differences in terms of composition, performance, and applications. Let's compare the two:

Composition

1680D Ballistic Nylon: Ballistic nylon is a synthetic fabric made from nylon fibres. The "1680D" denotes its high denier count, indicating its thickness and strength. It is tightly woven, making it highly resistant to tears and abrasion.

Canvas: Canvas, on the other hand, can be made from natural fibres (like cotton or linen) or synthetic fibres (like polyester). It is a plain-woven fabric known for its sturdiness and durability.

Strength & Durability:

1680D Ballistic Nylon: Due to its high denier count and tightly woven structure, ballistic nylon is exceptionally strong and resistant to tears, punctures, and abrasion. It’s often used in products that require maximum durability.

Canvas: Canvas is also a durable fabric, but its strength depends on the type of fibre used and the tightness of the weave. While canvas is sturdy, it may not be as resistant to wear and tear as 1680D ballistic nylon.

Weight:

1680D Ballistic Nylon: Being a heavy-duty fabric, 1680D ballistic nylon is generally heavier than canvas.

Canvas: Canvas can vary in weight depending on the type of fibre used and the weave, but it is often lighter than ballistic nylon.

Water Resistance:

1680D Ballistic Nylon: Nylon is naturally water-resistant, making it resistant to moisture and a quick-drying material.

Canvas: Traditional canvas made from natural fibres is not inherently water-resistant. However, some modern canvas varieties may be treated to improve water resistance.

Applications:

1680D Ballistic Nylon: Due to its exceptional strength and durability, ballistic nylon is commonly used in heavy-duty applications such as luggage, military gear, tactical equipment, and industrial protective gear. Canvas: Canvas has a wide range of applications, including tents, backpacks, workwear, tote bags, and artist canvases. It is versatile and can be used in both rugged and artistic contexts.
