Many decisions need to be made when building a custom case. What is the case
going to be used for? Does the equipment or instrument need protection? Does the
custom case make it easier to transport? What kind of material would be best for
the case? Does the case require padding? Does the case need a screen-printed
company logos? We carefully consider your needs and with you, we help you choose

At Starkor Manufacturing, we use several types of nylon and vinyl materials for
constructing your custom case, bag or pouch:
Truck Tarp - PVC material laminated to
polyester, which makes it very durable and waterproof. The material can be
silkscreened with a logo, and comes in a wide range of colors.
- Leather look-alike, with a
woven backing. Expanded vinyl provides some protection from moisture, can be
silk screened or foil stamped and comes in many colors. We also use other types
of vinyl that have a non woven backing that provides a small amount of padding.
Polyester - With a laminated
vinyl backing, this is the most waterproof woven material we use.
1000 Denier Nylon
Cordura - Abrasion
resistant, often used for luggage. It has some water resistance, is easy to
clean, and can be laminated to foam.
Packcloth Nylon -
Can be used as lining, or
outer material in small cases. It can be laminated to open cell foam, and
Regency Nylon - A 70 denier nylon with a
laminated plastic backing. Regency nylon provides some water protection, can be
silkscreened or foil stamped. It is not designed for heavy wear.
Starkor protects your custom case products with the highest quality foam
Open Cell Foam - The least expensive way to
provide protection. It can absorb moisture.
Closed Cell Foam - Provides structure and
protection. It will not absorb water.
