“Our years of experience and success in the fiber industry are unmatched,” said Walter Fields, global business director, DuPont BioMaterials. “With DuPont Sorona, we have raised the bar, not only with the technology, but with the many strong and dedicated customers we have partnered with to work on these outstanding developments.”
Sorona, a breakthrough high-performance fiber, offers exceptional softness, comfort stretch and recovery, and chlorine and UV resistance in vivid color fabrics designed for easy care. All qualities that are appealing to designers who place a high value on quality and the ability to respond quickly to changing market needs. What’s more, by replacing a traditionally petrochemical-based ingredient with one made with a renewably sourced ingredient, the production of Sorona requires 30 percent less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions 63 percent compared to the production of an equal amount of nylon.
The new fiber developments using DuPont Sorona are ideal for:
Trousers & Jeans – Comfort stretch staple fiber made with Sorona can be blended with a variety of cellulosic fibers (e.g. cotton, wool or rayon) to create fabrics that provide comfort stretch with excellent recovery and natural touch with volume hand feel. It is a perfect fiber solution for stretch khaki, denim and dress pants and suits.
Seamless Apparel – In addition to its low temperature dye and finish manufacturing conditions, draw textured yarn (DTY) with Sorona also offers outstanding texture and cottony softness. Air jet textured yarn (ATY) made with Sorona provides great color fastness even after several washes and exposure to UV, resulting in bright or neon colors that dry faster in seamless applications. It’s ideal for seamless underwear, sports tee and leisure wear, applications where comfort is paramount.
Swimwear – Sorona filament fiber for swimwear has a unique soft hand, plus outstanding UV- and chlorine-resistant performance that stands up to color fading after frequent uses.
Wrinkle release jackets – Only authentic shape memory made with DuPont Sorona provides permanent wrinkle release performance. Sorona filament fiber has a unique volume hand with built-in wrinkle release performance for easy care. And now, Sorona in full dull luster offers another perfect look for trench coats and outerwear.
DuPont has been bringing world-class science and engineering to the global marketplace in the form of innovative products, materials, and services since 1802.
