Fact Sheet DuPont Sorona 3GT Polymer

  • DuPont has 60 years of experience in polymer and textile science. DuPont Sorona is the most recent polymer in that long legacy of textile science leadership.
  • Sorona 3GT is the first of a family of polymers made from 1,3 propanediol (PDO). Fibers that contain these polymers have unique properties that include a very soft hand, comfort stretch and recovery, easy dyeability, stain resistance and easy-care characteristics.
  • Additional attributes imparted to fabrics by fibers made from Sorona polymer are chlorine and UV resistance, rapid drying, colorfastness, static protection, and resilience.
  • Fabrics with fibers made from Sorona polymer accept brilliant pigment dyes beautifully and permanently at 100C without carriers or pressure and offer excellent printability for rich, vivid colors.
  • Polymers and fibers made from Sorona will create a new, distinct position in the textile value chain because fabric made with the polymer can offer a wider range of combined performance, wearability and style.
  • The unique combination of performance and styling options available with fabrics that contain fibers made from Sorona polymer can open new potential for designers to create apparel and garments at the leading edge of fashion and functionality.

  • The depth of properties available from fibers containing Sorona polymer makes it ideal for a wide variety of apparel segments including both women's and men's wear and both topweight and bottomweight fabrics.
  • DuPont Sorona has a group of partners around the world developing and commercializing fibers and fabrics made from Sorona
    polymers. These partners include: DuPont Textiles & Interiors, DuPont SA, Huvis, Saehan, Far Eastern, Toray and Fangyuan.
