Sorona® for Automotive Carpet

A Renewably Sourced Automotive Carpet Alternative

Renewably Sourced™ DuPont™ Sorona® means car brands, (including Toyota, Nissan, Lexus, and Mitsubishi) can offer automotive carpet that over-performs in terms of durability and other performance benchmarks.

Renewably Sourced Sorona®

Sorona® contains 37% renewably-sourced material by weight for automotive carpet and mats with a more modest environmental footprint. The manufacture of Sorona® also consumes less non-renewable energy and produces fewer greenhouse gases than the production of competitive materials like nylon 6 and nylon 6,6 helping reduce our dependence on fossil fuels.

A Wealth of High-Performance Attributes

Automotive carpet and mats created with Sorona® renewably sourced fiber are distinguished by vibrant colors, outstanding durability, and a soft, lush feel. The singular molecular structure of Sorona® results in a fiber that achieves the resiliency of nylon with the softness of polyester.

Automotive Carpet with Lifelong Stain Resistance

Topical treatments like sprayed-on stain resisters ultimately wear off automotive carpet and mats. Sorona® has permanent stain resistance built right into the fiber itself, so automotive carpet created with remarkably durable Sorona® stays stain-resistant for the long haul.

Quick-Drying and Easy to Clean

Sorona® has a lower moisture content, so it dries quickly — discouraging odor and mildew. This, in addition to its intrinsic, molecular-level stain resistance, makes automotive carpet and mats made with Sorona® easy to keep fresh and clean.

DuPont scientists didn’t stop at creating a fiber for automotive carpet that hits the highest standards for color fastness, durability, and stain resistance. Sorona® for carpet fiber is also a 37% renewably sourced, plant-based material by weight, making it both sustainably responsible and high-performing.
