Invista’s leading fabric, Cordura brand, in partnership with DuPont Tate and Lyle Bio Products has brought the first in a series of eco-innovations driving the future use of new sustainable textiles at Techtextil, a leading nonwovens and technical textiles expo, currently ongoing in Frankfurt, Germany, in stand G25, hall 4.1.

Based on the combination of the legendary long-lasting durability of Cordura fabrics married with the bio-based performance of Susterra membranes and coatings, the first cutting-edge innovations resulting from this collaboration will be displayed at the expo.

Tiong Liong, the first authorised mill for footwear and gear as part of the Cordura + Susterra brand collaboration, is dedicated to developing product innovations with eco-efficiency in mind. Some of the first composite textiles utilising the Susterra propanediol thermoplastic polyurethane membranes incorporate Cordura EcoMade fabrics made with recycled polyester yarns as well as Tiong Liong’s own Ariaprene foam. Ariaprene foam uses a certified Bluesign system water-based lamination process that is designed for non-skin irritation and does not off-gas harmful pollutants throughout the product lifecycle. Durable, solvent-free, renewable, and recycled are the key descriptors that describe the exciting new developments coming from Tiong Long’s Cordura + Susterra developments.

Everest, the first apparel fabric mill brought into this collaboration, has the ability to incorporate bio-based membranes and coatings based on Susterra propanediol from DuPont Tate & Lyle into a variety of Cordura brand fabrics. At Techtextil, Everest will highlight how CORDURA Naturalle fabrics incorporated with a polyurethane bio-based membrane contain more than 25 per cent renewable sourced materials by weight are engineered to help keep your body dry and comfortable in all kinds of weather. The Susterra propanediol based membrane demonstrates good hydrolysis resistance, excellent low temperature flexibility and elasticity thus allowing the membranes to be incorporated with stretch fabrics for added mobility.

Cindy McNaull, global Cordura brand and marketing director said, “We continue to look at ways that we can benefit the environment as part of our innovation continuum - and Cordura fabrics can do this by helping to increase a product’s utility and durability. As the textile market continues to look for innovative solutions to help reduce its environmental footprint, we want to provide long-lasting products that need to be replaced less often. Through our recent collaboration with DuPont Tate & Lyle’s Susterra brand, designers of apparel, footwear, and gear will have access to a wide variety of durable fabric technologies that incorporate high performance coatings and membranes based on plant-based materials.” (GK)
