Material Fabric Information

Colan manufacture garments from several types of fabric. The main five are Solid Polyester Mesh, PU Nylon (or PU Coated Polyester), PVC Backed Nylon, Titex and Polycotton.

Solid Polyester Mesh

  • The most popular fabric we use
  • Available in a wide range of fluorescent and non fluorescent colours

  • A lightweight material that looks solid but has tiny pin prick holes in it
  • Good for Summer use as comfortable to wear
  • Not waterproof

Suggested washing instructions – 40 degree wash, preferably with non-biological washing powder if they are printed.

PU Nylon/PU coated Polyester

  • A strong lightweight Nylon based material
  • Sponge/wipe clean only
  • Shower proof
  • Available in a wide range of fluorescent and non fluorescent colours.

Fluorescent yellow and orange are not available in PU Nylon, they have been replaced with PU Coated Polyester, but for uniformity and ease of understanding on the part of the customer we often still refer to them as PU Nylon.
