Cordura & DuPont to make sustainable performance fabrics

Mar '17
Invista’s Cordura brand fabric, a primary ingredient in high-performance gear and apparel products, and DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products, a joint venture between DuPont, and Tate & Lyle, renewable food and industrial ingredients company, have collaborated to deliver a new chapter in innovative sustainable textile solutions for performance fabrics.

With this collaboration, designers of apparel, footwear, and gear will have access to leading durable performance fabrics that incorporate sustainable materials. Both companies, who share a common heritage by tracing their roots to DuPont, a global science company, are marking major milestones. The Cordura brand is celebrating 50 durable years of continuous advancements that have helped shape the world of military, workwear and outdoor products. DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is celebrating a decade of offering high performing ingredients from a sustainable and renewable source based on leveraging the tools of modern biotechnology.

DuPont Tate & Lyle’s Susterra propanediol durable coatings and waterproof, breathable membranes are manufactured through a proprietary fermentation process using plant-derived glucose. In addition to being renewably sourced, Susterra is manufactured using a sustainable process that produces 50 per cent less greenhouse gas emissions and consumes 42 per cent less non-renewable energy than equivalent petroleum-based diols.

Cindy McNaull, global Cordura brand and marketing director said, “Working with DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products is the beginning of great things to come. At the core of our brand’s DNA is a dedication to delivering durable next generation fabric technologies. Products made with Cordura fabrics are long-lasting, which means they need to be replaced less often, helping reduce waste.”

Laurie Kronenberg, global marketing director for DuPont Tate & Lyle Bio Products said, “We are thrilled to be working together with the Cordura brand, combining our unique capabilities and expertise, and building on our track records of delivering innovation to the marketplace. Together, we can revolutionise the future use of sustainable textiles by delivering innovative solutions that marry the legendary long-lasting durability of Cordura fabrics with the bio-based performance of Susterra propanediol based membranes and coatings.” (GK)
