Problem: A textile is only as strong as the fibers used to make it.

Solution: The Federal Trade Commission (FTC) has determined that fibers made from PTT1, the latest polymer innovation from DuPont™, offer a unique combination of attributes which merit a new generic name: triexta. Offering exceptional durability and stain resistance, compared to previously available fibers, triexta can be used in a variety of products, such as apparel and flooring. Testing shows that it outperforms polyester carpets in resilience and strength. Triexta will be sold under the DuPont Sorona® brand.
