Our 600D polyester water repellent fabric is a true 600x600 Denier, not the lighter, less durable 600x300. Our 600D material is not only abrasion resistant, it retains more flexibility and a softer feel thanks to its TPU coating.
Our 600D is solution dyed—not all are! Why is this so important? It means that the color is not applied to surface, rather it is part of the threads used to create the fabric. The color exists all the way "through" the material. Color lasts much longer on materials that are solution dyed! (This is similar to our solution-dyed acrylic fabrics, another great choice for outdoor or waterproof material.)
600D is probably most commonly-used for backpacks, school and equipment bags, yet customers also use it to make boat covers and awnings due its water and mildew resistant qualities.
We sell 600 Denier Fabric at discounted "by the yard" prices or in full rolls for maximum savings. If you have questions about any of our outdoor materials including 1000D fabric, 600D or solution-dyed acrylic fabrics, we're happy to help — give us a call at 1-800-704-6138!
The 'D' in 600D or 1000D refers to denier, which is a unit of measure that indicates the fiber weight and thickness. Generally, higher numbers mean heavier, thicker yarns are used in the material's construction. Learn more about denier fabrics on our blog: What is Denier.
