"CT0.3K.18"
I wonder if you might just end up with a very expensive, but not much superior, version of a polycryo groundsheet. The UHMWPE fibers in the cuben might give it an edge in tensile strength but in to...

Dyeing Momentum
I'll second the recommendation to try Lanaset/Sebraset from Pro Chemical and Dye. I've had good results using it with nylon, but I don't have experience with fabrics that have a fluorop...

Fabrication details
Travis, I used a specialized iron with a thermostat set to 350 F. I don't know what setting would be best on a household iron. It would be simple to add baffles to keep it flatter in the pack. ...

Water contamination from plastics
It's nice to have a handy axiom ("Needs to be food grade") in case a question arises about leaching from plastics, but I don't think it's in one's interest to depend on th...

Water bag/bladder
The body of this water bag is made from 70D heat sealable nylon, and the cap was removed from an old TPU bladder that had a burst seam. The capacity is about 5 liters (over 11 lbs of water!), which...

2.2oz 70D urethane-coated nylon
Thanks for the tip, Tim. 2.2oz is acceptable, I think. Where did you see that material? I'm only considering coated nylon instead of cuben because I'd like to put abrasion-resistant patc...

30D heat-sealable nylon
The white, 30D heat-sealable nylon that Bender uses (which is essentially the same as the stuff available from Seattle Fabrics) would work but it weighs about 3oz/yard (with some batch variation). ...

lightest available urethane-coated fabric
I have a project that requires bonding a waterproof fabric to cuben. I don't know of an adhesive that will bond a silicone-coated fabric to the mylar surface of cuben fiber, and melamine or pol...

WTB: High-bias Cuben
I plan to make a hat and I'm looking for a small amount (about one square yard) of high-bias Cuben Fiber. I'm open to using any of the lighter weight high-bias styles.
