DuPont™ Sorona® for Automotive Carpets and Fabrics

Automotive Technical Textiles

The unique molecular structure of Renewably Sourced™ DuPont™ Sorona® means automotive technical textiles created with Sorona® have both the resiliency of nylon and the appealing softness of polyester.

Life-long stain resistance is engineered directly into the fiber of automotive technical textiles realized in Sorona®. It’s not sprayed on — so the stain resistance of Sorona® can never wear off. And Sorona® fiber has a low moisture content (for speedy drying). But of all the reasons why Sorona® makes auto designers feel good, the most important is its sustainability. Sorona® polymer contains 37% plant derived renewable material by weight enabling the creation of automotive technical textiles with a significantly more modest environmental footprint. And Sorona® production consumes less energy and results in fewer greenhouse gas emissions than the manufacture of nylon 6 or nylon 6,6.



Sorona® contains 37% annually renewable plant based ingredients by weight (28% biobased carbon)
