Continuing a Thread of Innovation with Performance Fibers

DuPont continues to develop innovative high performance fibers - working with manufacturers and designers to develop materials that can be used to protect people and equipment, and lower carbon footprint.

DuPont has been the world leader in polymer and textile science since the early 1900s and has continued a legacy of innovation in performance fibers.


Manufacturers, mills, and designers look for fibers to protect people and machinery, provide stronger and lighter weight reinforcements, and design with high performing eco-friendly materials. We collaborate and innovate with customers using performance fibers such as; DuPont™ Kevlar® for ballistic protection, cut protection and strength reinforcement;  DuPont™ Nomex® flame resistant fiber for protective apparel, automotive components, composite and filtration applications, and electrical paper used in transformers, motors and generators; and  DuPont™ Sorona® , an innovative carpet, apparel and automotive interior eco-fiber that offers reduced dependence on fossil fuels and a reduced environmental footprint.

Whether it’s protecting firefighters, industrial workers, police officers and military forces, helping engines and generators operate at high temperature, or providing comfort, stretch, and softness to clothing, DuPont performance fibers are the extraordinary thread that impacts our lives.
