Committed to sustainability, DuPont continues to innovate in the plant-derived renewably sourced material space, this time with the introduction of DuPont™ Sorona® EP thermoplastic polymers. Featuring performance and molding characteristics akin to high-performance PBT (polybutylene terephthalate) DuPont™ Sorona® EP thermoplastic polymers contain up to 37% renewably sourced material by weight.
INFORMATION & IDEAS
Specific performance benefits, including stain resistance, are so unique to DuPont™ Sorona®, the U.S. FTC gave the generic name triexta to homo fibers made from PTT, the Sorona® renewably sourced polymer.
Since the early 1900's, DuPont has been a world leader in polymer and fiber technology. DuPont™ Sorona® renewably sourced fiber is the latest innovation that delivers environmental benefits without sacrificing performance.
Knowing the important role carpet recycling plays in helping the environment, DuPont research has proven that face fiber made with DuPont™ Sorona® can be shaved from the carpet backing, turned into pellets, and spun into new fiber. In fact, there are even more potential ways to recycle carpet made with Sorona®.
Sorona® contains up to 37% annually renewable plant based ingredients by weight (28% biobased carbon)
