Residential Carpet with Long-lasting Softness and Beauty
A natural choice for home interiors, carpet made with DuPont™ Sorona® is so soft, aesthetically pleasing and easy to care for, homeowners will enjoy long-lasting comfort underfoot for many years.
Breakthrough science from DuPont has revolutionized residential carpet offerings. With DuPont™ Sorona® used in broadloom carpets, area rugs, bath mats and door mats, homeowners and interior designers can choose a soft solution that is more care-free and more caring of our environment.
Softness That Lasts
The unique structure of Sorona® makes carpet invitingly soft, yet definitely durable. It has good hand feel, so people will feel comfortable at home, whether walking or resting their bare feet.
Residential carpet made with Sorona® resist matting because the high molecular weight and quality of Sorona® provides fiber uniformity during extrusion. This creates softer, more crush-resistant fibers that retain their shape and texture—step after step, year after year.
Built-In Stain-Resistance Keeps Carpets Looking New
Household spills and stains such as ketchup and red wine will never penetrate residential carpet made with Sorona®. With permanent, natural stain protection that won't wash or wear off like topically applied stain treatments can, Sorona® keeps carpet looking like new for years to come.
Beautiful Designs to Enhance Any Décor
With rich colors and printability that allows for beautiful, customized details, Sorona® offers unlimited design possibilities. It is compatible with a variety of fiber and carpet dyeing techniques, including solution dyeing, space dyeing and yarn dyeing. This flexibility allows mills and manufacturers to offer residential carpet options that fit with any home design aesthetic.
No Muss, No Fuss
People with busy lifestyles will appreciate that carpet made with Sorona® is easy to care for. It dries fast, is bleach- and UV-resistant and leaves no odor or mildew.
A Residential Carpet Solution that’s Environmentally Friendly
The production of Sorona® renewably sourced fiber uses 30% less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 63% compared to the production of an equal amount of nylon 6. What’s more, no additional chemical treatments are used for stain resistance. Now homeowners can enjoy the environmental benefits of carpet made with Sorona® without sacrificing performance.
Sorona® is currently sold by many residential carpet suppliers worldwide.
